Midnight Movie: Dr. Drew Seminar at USC
Dr. Drew Pinsky and Dr. Mark Young penned the new book, “The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism Is Seducing America" (LAist Book Review). In this video from 2006, the doctors give a talk at the USC Annenberg School for Communication on celebrity narcissism, and more. Both doctors have Trojan ties. Dr. Young heads the entertainment business program at USC, and Dr. Drew earned his MD from USC Medical School. (The audio sync is a little off -- but not like an old kung fu flick.)
