Howard Finkel wishes you a safe and happy newwwwwwwwwwww year.

Longtime professional wrestling ring announcer Howard Finkel bid farewell to 2012 and welcomed 2013 by wishing everyone around the world a “happy NEWWWWWWWW year.”

Clad in a black-and-white tuxedo and clutching a microphone, The Fink bellowed the greeting with his trademark gusto, as if a WWE championship had just traded hands.

Throughout the day, Finkel repeatedly boomed that it was “December 31… AND STILLLLLL the year 2012.”

His wife asked him repeatedly to cut it out.
