Is there anything that Brian Williams CAN’T do? He anchors NBC Nightly News, he hosts Saturday Night Live, he stalks Don Draper AND he produces ridiculously talented and good-looking offspring. Meet Allison Williams, BriWi’s daughter and recent Yale graduate. Apparently, she’s gotten quite popular on the YouTubes with her covers of Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” (3.6 million+ views) and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” (893,000+ views), but she didn’t catch our eye until our friends over at Gawker.tv posted this video this afternoon.
Allison sings lead in this stirring, one-shot mash-up between RJD2’s “A Beautiful Mine” (better known as the Mad Men theme song) and Eden Ahbez’s classic song, “Nature Boy” (which Baz Luhrman drew a lot of his Moulin Rouge inspiration from). As the Videos Recorded Live people mention on this video’s YouTube page, there’s no dubbing, no lip syncing and no Auto-Tune in this awesome video. Really, the only thing it’s missing is an Ida Blankenship cameo.
