Now, ladies and gentlemen, Mike Myers.
[Michael John “Mike” Myers (May 25, 1963)]
Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you, thank you.
Now people often asked me, is anything worn under your Kilt, and I say: “no, nothing is worn, everything is in fine working order.” Thank you very much. Now, you may be wondering, why am I introducing Sir Sean Connery for his AFI Life Achievement Award? Well, first I’m a huge fan; second, Sean Connery’s portrayal of James Bond is obviously the inspiration for Austin Powers, yes.
No James Bond, no Austin Powers. No Austin Powers, no private jet for me. That would have been a tragedy. I’m also here because Sean Connery is the quintessential Scotsmen. I have Scottish blood; and I’ve played a Scotsmen in over half of my movies including Shrek. So once again, no Sean Connery, no Shrek; no Shrek, no sprawling vacation property in the Hamptons. Thanks again, Mr. Connery. Thank you.

Now, I’ve done a lot of tributes in my day, but I can honestly say that of all the iconic Scottish superstar actors of the last 50 years, Sean Connery is definitely in the top five, yeah, right. I kid, I kid, I kid, why, comment “I love exclamation mark!” You’re obviously the top and you Sir, were the top in my house. After leaving home, I quickly realized that you weren’t just a legend in our house, or on our local theater screen, but that you Sir are loved around the world on any screen. Now, I loved you of course. But my dad was my hero, and you Mr. Connery were my dad’s hero. My dad loved you not only because you’re a great actor, but because you’re a man’s man. How about?
Women want to be with you and men want to be you, and then there are some men who both want to be you and be with you. I’ll admit it, I have a man crush. Yes, I do. Sure, he’s masculine in A Bridge Too Far, but where is the man who can maintain his virility while wearing a ponytail, thigh high boots and a nut slinger, well done. Thank you. Jesus; I salute you.
Alright, so, it’s no wonder that People magazine named you the Sexiest Man Alive. As James Bond you had a different girl every night, you had women with names like Kissy Suzuki, Honey Rider, and Pussy Galore. Personally I went out with a girl named Closed Legs Finklestone. Ya – Not as good, not any as good. Not as good.
Some facts about Sean Connery. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1930. He joined the Royal Navy, left became a truck driver, a laborer, a life guard, and won third place in the 1953 Mr. Universe contest. Yeah, and you like that one, uh; how about this one. My man crush deepens. I’ve been playing with anagrams lately. For instance change around the letters of another AFI Life Achievement Award winner Clint Eastwood. And it turns into Old West Action.

Tom Cruise becomes, I’M SO CUTER. Sean Connery’s name turns into ON ANY SCREEN. And I think – I think that’s truly – truly appropriate, which brings me back to my father. Austin Powers was a tribute to my dad and he passed before he could see any of my success. I rarely torture myself with such thoughts, but there are certain moments, you just wish, he is still alive to see this and of course this is one of those moments. So from the days of hearing my dad say, see that Sean Connery that’s bloody me on the screen like. To living through a version of you myself to my own appreciation of your great acting, it is truly, truly my honor to be here with you tonight. Congratulations Sir Sean Connery on receiving this, the 34th Annual AFI Life Achievement Award.
