He had no trouble getting "down" but he kept honking for Vi to get him back up. That's when he start calling her his little Viagra. When the seemingly endless dance mercifully was over, Tom goosed Vi and she in turn clipped his "wings". Of course, this was caught on video and is now all over the Web!
