Pete Davidson[Starts with Colin Jost in his set]
Colin Jost: The Super Bowl is tomorrow. And as always, there’s a lot of excitement about the ads. Here to talk about his recent experience making an ad is our own, Pete Davidson.[Pete Davidson slides in] [cheers and applause]
Pete Davidson: Hello. How are you?
Colin Jost: I’m great. Um, so Pete, you shot a commercial recently, right?
Pete Davidson: Yeah. A few months ago, I shot a Dockers commercial because things in my career are going exactly how I want them to go. No, I’m just playing. Dockers are great. I wear them all the time. They’re dope. It’s like they say, they’re comfy and they’re clean. They’re Dockers.
Colin Jost: Great work there. We got it. Nice. [Pete Davidson winks] Seamless plus. Great.
Pete Davidson: Yeah. For sure. The premise of the campaign was I had to go out on the streets of San Francisco and get people to take their pants off and trade them for a pair of Dockers. But what was crazy was we shot the campaign like, a month before all the Weinstein, Spacey sexual harassment stuff happened. So, like, every week more and more articles are coming out about like, these monsters and in between those articles are ads of me out on the street like, “Hey lady, you wanna take your pants off? I’m Pete Davidson.”
Colin Jost: Yeah. So, not an ideal timing.
Pete Davidson: Yeah. And I was out there like, forever. Nobody would listen to me. I felt like Al Gore trying to tell people about global warming. Miami’s not gonna exist soon, by the way. Did you know what?[silence]
See? Nobody wants to hear that stuff.[laughter]
Colin Jost: Anyway, the Dockers ad.
Pete Davidson: Oh, yeah. So, after hours and hours, I finally got a guy to stop. And I was like, “Oh, thank god. We’ll have like, one good interview.” And I was like, “What’s up, man? What’s your name? Where are you from?” He’s like, “I’m Steve. I’m from Oakland.” I was like, “Oh! What brings you to San Francisco, Steve?” He goes, “My daughter.” And I said, “Oh, wow! That’s sweet, man. What are you? Like, visiting her college or something?” And he says, “No. She’s in the hospital.” And I was like, “Oh, my god. Is everything gonna be okay?” And he says, “I hope so. She has cancer.” And I was like, “Would you like to take your pants off and trade them in for a pair of Dockers?”
Colin Jost: Wow! That was good.
Pete Davidson: Yeah. That’s the commercial.
Colin Jost: That’s a great– Also, by the way, what happened to your hand? [pointing at Pete Davidson’s hand. He has a bandage on his right hand.]
Pete Davidson: Oh. I punched a door. It’s a really good story. You see, like, I have mental problems. [silence] That’s the story.
Colin Jost: That’s the story. Yeah. Great.
Pete Davidson: No, but it has been a learning experience. You know? I got really good at doing things with my left hand, if you know what I mean.
Colin Jost: Yes.
Pete Davidson: No, no, no. I’ve always been close with the right. But the left’s really had a chance to shine.
Colin Jost: That’s great.
Pete Davidson: You know. When Drew Bledsoe got hurt and Tom Brady sub did.
Colin Jost: Everyone knows. Everyone knows what you’re talking about.
Pete Davidson: I learned how to masturbate with my left hand.
Colin Jost: Pete Davidson, everybody.
Pete Davidson: [pointing at his left hand] The GOAT!
