Dear God, that's almost as sad as it is hilarious. It's really eye-opening to a person to see themselves in that state. Hopefully it helps him out a bit.
It reminds me of a scene from the documentary "The Decline of Western Civilization Part 2". Truly, this is one of the most depressing, and most entertaining, videos I've ever seen. Guitarist Chris Holmes of W.A.S.P. is completely wasted in front of his mother during an interview. He acts quite inappropriately, especially considering the company he's in. The look on his mother's face is sheer pain and angst. It's like she knew her son would turn into a trainwreck if he became a rock star, and she's watching her worst nightmare happen right in front of her eyes. The fact that Holmes is still alive, some 20 years after the documentary was filmed, is a miracle.
I'd link to it here, but there's strong language in the clip. It's on YouTube if you want to take a peek at it.
