Ron Howard appeared on Friday's "The View" and Sherri asked the director how he wound up in the booze-infused video for Jamie Foxx's "Blame It On The Alcohol," along with people like Jake Gyllenhaal and Samuel L. Jackson. (Watch the whole video below "The View" clip)
As Tom Hanks teared up laughing beside him following a video clip they played, Howard explained.
"We were at the inauguration, and there's this whole spirit of brotherhood, and I thought it was going to be some We Are The World thing."
He also detailed how he was told not to smile during the shoot.
