Remember when Ken Jeong yelled “Too-da-loo?” at MTV Awards? Here’s the heartwarming backstory

Dr. Ken Jeong, infamous for making brief but memorable comical appearances in movies, was one of the winners during last night’s MTV Movie Awards. He was awarded the Golden Popcorn for his appearance in the popular movie The Hangover. After thanking all the important people involved in the movie in his comic manner, he turned emotional while thanking his wife, Dr. Tran Ho who was battling breast cancer during the filming.

“…And more importantly than this I want to take the opportunity to thank my wife Tran. Todd and Bradley Cooper, a good friend of mine, actually helped me through a difficult time when my wife Tran was going through breast cancer treatment and the reason why I did this, she taught me that life is short and then don’t be afraid to take chances and I just want to tell you that Tran is cancer free for two-years! I love you and toodaloo mother fu**ers! Woahwoahwoahwoahwoahwoahah.”

Let’s go behind that story. This is part of a series of films for the upcoming WETA and Ken Burns Cancer project.
