The VMAs Tribute to Robin Williams Was Exactly 23 Seconds Long

Yes, seriously

 

The VMAs tend to be highly organized, with introductions for every award and every act. But Robin Williams’ tribute went unannounced, lasted only 23 seconds, consisted of a few pictures and ended immediately without applause or explanation. Also, it was set, somewhat inexplicably, to Coldplay.

Expect the late comedian to get a much longer tribute at the 2014 Emmys.
