Bill Cosby Reaches Out to Fans in Awkward Video (WATCH)

Hey, hey, hey, Bill Cosby is sending a message to his fans: He's still funny, he's still touring, and he's so unconcerned about the many rape accusations against him, that he can't even be bothered to get out of bed! Cosby filmed the video message of him confirming an upcoming scheduled gig, and for some bizarre reason, he's in his pajamas.

Cosby, who is speaking on a phone that looks like it's from the 1980s (kids, have you ever seen one of these?) -- when he allegedly did much of sexual assaulting -- sits in a chair wearing maroon red silk pajamas, which he may or may not have borrowed from pal Hugh Hefner.

He humbly tells the person on the other end of the line: "You know I'll be hilarious."

The video reportedly came with a press release that said:

Dear fans, I hope you enjoy my wonderful video message that's filled with laughter ... Hey, hey, hey, I'm far from finished.

Eww. Leave Fat Albert out of this!

Cosby has not been convicted of anything in a court of law (although he did settle with one accuser), so he has the right to promote his upcoming shows.

But couldn't he have shown a bit more gravity about it? How about wearing a suit and tie? The unfortunate consequence of wearing silk pajamas is that it makes us think of Cosby in bed, and none of us wants to think about Cosby in bed, considering everything we've heard.

This bizarrely out-of-touch video has the consquence of making Cosby seem arrogant and entitled -- which we already know he is, but why remind us?
