Daily One Inch Button - Tony Clifton

Who is Tony Clifton? Was it Andy Kaufman? This excellent video from the Muppet show featuring not just Tony Clifton but Andy Kaufman as well says that is not the case. Some say that at some points, Tony was Andy, and at some points (like when he makes appearances now) he is Bob Zmuda. Could it be that Tony Clifton is really Tony Clifton? Who else would sing Volare so obnoxiously, and yet so beautifully?

He really was the counterpart to Andy Kaufman. Loud, obnoxious, smoking cigarettes and eating / doing just about whatever he wanted. Yet somehow, we lost Andy but got stuck with him. Who said that there was fairness in life, right?
