David Letterman is really into drums. There’s a thing he sometimes does after a band plays on his show: he walks up to the drummer, compliments them on their drums and asks if they’re rentals. We noticed it happening often enough that we combed YouTube for a few dozen instances and created this supercut of Letterman talking to drummers. We also threw in the occasional cellist and harmonium player for good measure.

During our research, we learned a few things:

• David Letterman is pretty much the most charming man in the world.

• Lots of drummers rent their drums to appear on The Late Show.

• Singers tend to look uncomfortable when attention is being paid to a drummer.

• Not surprisingly, Letterman himself plays drums.
