One of the reasons David Letterman gave for his retirement from late-night television was his inability to create the type of viral YouTube videos that his younger competitors (Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel) have been doing to great success for years. So perhaps it's fitting that one of the best segments of Letterman's final episode was the below music video of sorts that incorporates clips and stills from Dave's 33-year career. It's a video bound to be watched again, and again, and again. And it's one that could serve as inspiration for your own career. Perhaps, as you watch it, it's worth asking yourself, What will my career look like when I retire?
