Channeling Groucho Marx's Otis B Driftwood

New York - Someone has posted footage on the YouBoob! Channel of disgraced Ecuadorean ex-judge Nicolas Zambrano channeling Otis B Driftwood in the 1935 movie's classic Stateroom scene.

The former judge appears in the video inside a tiny West Side apartment, thought to belong to NY shyster lawyer Steven Donziger, crammed up against the wall along with Donziger's entire 14-strong litigation team, which has been reportedly been holed up there since the start of the five week trial.

And he's still wearing the same bizarre floor-length dark leather coat and bright red wooly hat that made such an impression last week on Judge Lewis Kaplan's NY courthouse where Zambrano was called as a hostile witness in Chevron's racketeering lawsuit against Donziger and pals.

Commenting on the footage tonight a Marx Brothers fan said that apart from Groucho's fake 'Black Slug' moustache he and Zambrano 'could be twin brothers' - as the two minute recording shows.

"Stateroom has become an iconic movie scene," Waldo Picasso of Celeb Tonite! said, "showing how to cram over a dozen people into a tiny Cattle Class cabin on The Titanic as they await Room Service delivery of hard boiled eggs."

Next week Zambrano is due to open his new Latin American cookery school in New York's Meatpacking District where he will be showcasing his Ecuadorean signature dish of 'crow, best eaten cold'.

Donziger's co-litigants the Amazonbotch Group and DC lobbyists Patton Boggs are in a right old state.
