Reason 283: He wore, during his performance, the pair of socks Robert Griffin III gave him. (in the tonight show with Jay Leno)
(Jay Leno begins the show mocking Hugh’s colorful tie. When Robert Griffin III comes out as the second guest they start talking about Robert’s colorful socks.)
Jay Leno: You like wearing colorful socks right? Check it out! What did you get there? Any cool socks?
Robert Griffin III: Yeah… I do, I have ”Go catch your dream” socks on with a cape on the back…
Jay Leno: Oh! Look at there! Those look like a Hugh Laurie tie!
Hugh Laurie: Oh you…!
Robert Griffin III: Before going on I have a gift for you (Jay Leno). Yes I have a gift for you, right back here… I got you a pair of your own “Go catch your dream” socks.
Jay Leno: Thank you very much! I don’t get the cape?
Robert Griffin III: And Mr. Hugh I don’t know if you like socks, but you can cut these up and make a tie out of them…
Hugh Laurie: *laughs* That is fantastic. *He puts the socks on his chest like if they were a tie (second pic)* That is fantastic.
(During his musical performance Hugh shows he’s wearing his socks. )
