The upcoming return of David Lago as Raul Guittierez on The Young and the Restless, set Soaps.com to thinking about the Daytime Emmy winning actor’s infamous speech when he accepted his award – which he won after leaving the show in 2004.

David’s acceptance speech, in which he channels movie actor Christopher Walken, was somewhat controversial at the time, but most of his co-stars loved it – and so did Soaps.com! David explained that he hadn’t prepared a speech and was trying to be entertaining! Check it out for yourself!

What did you think of the speech? Are you excited for David (and Raul) to return to Y&R? Let us know!
