“Trying to make his way home
Back up to heaven all alone
Nobody calling on the phone
'cept for the Pope maybe in Rome”

      As was said -- great DOF and sharpness, and that look!

      LOL! "Nobody calling on the phone, 'cept for the Pope maybe in Rome" Reminds me of this:

      The Chief Rabbi of Israel and the Pope were in a meeting in Rome. The Rabbi noticed an unusually fancy phone on a side table in the Pope's private chambers.
      "What is that phone for?" he asked the pontiff.
      "It's my direct line to the One Above!"
      The Rabbi was sceptical, and the Pope noticed. He insisted that the Rabbi try it out, and, indeed, he is connected. The Rabbi holds a lengthy discussion with Him.
      After hanging up the Rabbi said. "Thank you very much. This is great! But listen, I want to pay for my phone charges."
      The Pope, of course refused, but the Rabbi was steadfast and finally, the pontiff gave in. He checked the counter on the phone and said: "All right! The charges were 100,000 Lira."
      The Chief Rabbi gladly hands over a packet of bills. A few months later, the Pope was in Jerusalem on an official visit. In the Chief Rabbi's chambers he saw a phone identical to his and learned that it also was a direct line to the One Above. The Pope remembered that he had an urgent matter that required divine consultation and asked if he can use the Rabbi's phone.
      The Rabbi gladly agreed, and handed him the phone. The Pope chatted away for awhile. After hanging up, the Pope offered to pay for the phone charges.
      The Rabbi looked on the phone counter and said: "What for? It's only 1 Shekel!"
      The Pope looked surprised: "Why so cheap!?!"
      The Rabbi smiled and said: "From here it's a local call!"

      I'd recognize him any where....

      Impressive dof, he's really nicely sharp all around the edges...

      I know the song but not the music video, it's well done.
