Robert Goulet, RIP

The legendary crooner died last night at the age of 73. Sure, I know I’m being a philistine for saying this, but I primarily remember Goulet for four things: His great ESPN college basketball commercials in the mid-’90s, his role as villain Quentin Hapsburg* in the underrated “Naked Gun 2 1/2,” his brilliant Emerald Nuts commercials from earlier this year, and (of course) Will Ferrell’s ingenious impression of him:

*No, Goulet didn’t really die like this.
