tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC February 26, 2016 12:37am-1:37am EST
there from philadelphia, pennsylvania, ladies and gentlemen. stay tuned for "late night with seth meyers." thank you for watching, have a a great night. i hope to see you tomorrow. bye-bye, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] [ cheers and applause ] >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- angela bassett, sports broadcaster, rich eisen, music from misterwives, featuring the 8g band. [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers! >> seth: good evening! i'm seth meyers and this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight?
fantastic. in that case, let's get to the news. the oscars are this sunday, which marks the official end of black history month. [ laughter ] there was another republican debate tonight, which means there are only three more republican debates on the schedule. i just hope that's enough time to get some insight into the secret thoughts of this coy, little orchid. [ laughter ] tell us what you're thinking. cnn and telemundo both carried tonight's debate, so questions were addressed either for mr. trump or para el diablo. [ laughter and applause ] donald trump -- donald trump said yesterday that if elected, he will work to repeal obamacare on the first day of his presidency. but that's okay because health care is free where we're all going.
it'll be fine. from where he'll send us. donald trump today called former republican nominee mitt romney a dope, to which romney replied, "thanks, dude, you're pretty fresh yourself." [ laughter ] president obama posted on linkedin today about his first job scooping ice cream. he's the first president to post on linkedin, other than, of course, abraham linkedin. [ laughter ] that's right. you guys -- you guys all responded correctly. abraham linkedin. [ laughter ] john kasich -- a proper way to honor the memory of abraham linkedin. before he was shot by john wilkes bing. [ laughter ] i'll keep getting worse. [ laughter ] yeah. i haven't hit my ceiling -- my floor yet.
[ laughter ] all right, moving on. but abraham linkedin don't -- john kasich yesterday addressed donald trump's recent primary victories and said, "it's not what the score is at the first quarter, it's what the score is at the end of the game." though neither one of those matter very much when you're in the marching band. [ laughter ] after spending almost one year in space, astronaut scott kelly, will return to earth next week, where he is expected to be very surprised how little we've talked about that. a lot was going on down here. the democratic national committee has launched a social media campaign to get president obama to nominate a replacement for justice scalia with the hashtag, #filltheseat. and just a word of warning, don't google image it. [ laughter ] some parents across the country are worried after certain brands of sippy cups have started growing mold inside the mouthpiece valve.
third child. just scrape it off if it tastes funny. [ laughter ] you're fine. you're fine. you're going to live. [ applause ] you're fine. google is pushing federal regulators to allow them to build self-driving cars without steering wheels, and you would start the car by pushing this button. [ laughter and applause ] and finally, a united airlines passenger recently accused airline employees of opening her luggage and urinating in it after she found yellow stains and the smell of urine on her belongings. well, it's like they say, you can't spell urinated without united. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight! [ cheers and applause ] she's from the new film, "london has fallen," the wonderful
[ cheers and applause ] he is here to talk about the nfl combine, host of "the rich eisen show" on directv, rich eisen is back on "late night." [ cheers and applause ] and we will have music from a wonderful band who was here a year ago. misterwives returns to "late night" this evening. [ cheers and applause ] but before we get to that, with hillary clinton and bernie sanders locked in a tight contest for the democratic nomination, the media has now turned to the question of how sanders, if he were to become the nominee, would fair in a general election, given his status as a self-described democratic socialist. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: one of the most notable trends of the campaign so far has been the surge in support among young voters for bernie sanders. in fact, a new poll out this week found that more young voters said they would like to have a meal with bernie sanders than with beyonce.
a shift, of course, that happened after bernie stole the spotlight at the "super bowl halftime show." [ laughter ] in fact, that same poll suggests bernie's support among young voters is so high he's even surpassed president obama. >> barack obama used to be their number one politician, and now it's bernie sanders. he's even done better than obama. they would rather -- they would vote for sanders. they would love to have a meal with bernie sanders. >> seth: poor obama. young people used to think he was so cool. i mean, this was him in 2008. [ cheers ] >> three-pointer, right there. >> seth: and now he's considered less cool than this guy. [ laughter and applause ] he is playing basketball with pens in his pocket. [ laughter ] "hold on a second! that's two points for me." but it's not just bernie's personality the young voters like, it's also his political
in that same poll, "58% saw socialism as the most compassionate economic system, topping capitalism." that's a major shift in american politics. a shift that has some conservatives in full on panic mode. >> more voters are feeling the bern. >> but what about his socialist views? >> i think he's the most dangerous candidate running. >> when did socialism go from scary to chic? >> what the heck is going on? >> free everything. free college, free cars, you name it. he's got a socialist answer for it. >> seth: that's right, free cars. [ laughter ] but the question is, what kinds of free cars can we expect from a sanders administration? well, maybe a clue lies in bernie's own choice of automobile. >> what kind of car do you actually have? >> i have a small chevrolet. it is one of the smallest chevys that they make. [ light laughter ] >> seth: i mean, it's so small, it's not even a car really. it's more of a scooter with doors.
that's the chevy equality. but the conservative freak-out about bernie's democratic socialism doesn't stop there. it even extends to his appearance. >> as freaky as sanders is on so many levels -- i mean, he's a hardcore socialist, raising taxes to 90%. he's a freak to look at. >> seth: "he's a freak to look at," says the guy who looks like he ate tony danza. [ laughter and applause ] but that wasn't even the silliest reaction to bernie's socialism. there was also bill o'reilly, who knows how to overreact like no one else. >> you know, look, i'm fleeing. if bernie sanders gets elected president, i'm fleeing. i'm going to ireland. >> seth: i hate to break it to you, bill, but if you think ireland will be an oasis from the bernie sanders socialist nightmare, you're in for a shock because in ireland, "students pay no tuition at irish colleges and universities." and when hearing that gives you a heart attack, don't worry, because in ireland, "everyone is entitled to free basic health care."
so conservatives say they don't like bernie's platform because of its impact on taxes. but if that's the case, then whose tax plans do they like? >> bernie's a socialist. he wants to tax the heck out of everyone to help the poor. and trump is the capitalist who wants to lower taxes to encourage growth. >> rubio actually has a zero tax on capital income. it is the most pro-growth from that perspective. >> ted cruz has a great tax plan. >> seth: so these are the plans conservatives like. but when you look at them more closely, they'd all slash government spending and give huge tax breaks to the wealthiest americans. in fact, the top .1% of earners would see their incomes rise by, "13.6% under rubio, 19% under trump, and a whopping 29% under cruz." cruz's plan might as well be called the, "add more gold to donald trump's penthouse" plan. [ light laughter ] that's actually where donald trump lives. he surrounds himself with gold. he's like the dragon from "the hobbit" movies. [ laughter ] but the questions democrats seem to be asking now is who would fair better in a general election against donald trump, sanders or clinton?
already offered their own opinions on that, and they both seem very eager to go up against each other. >> there would be nothing more in this world that i would like -- to take on donald trump. we would beat him, and we would beat him badly. >> oh, would i love to run against bernie. [ cheers ] i would love -- i would -- oh. [ laugher ] that would be a dream come true. >> seth: trump talks about running against bernie sanders the way my aunt talks about a rich dessert. [ laughter ] "aw! aw! this mousse!" [ applause ] but a race against sanders would not necessarily be a dream come true for trump, because a poll last week found that while hillary beats trump by 10 points, bernie beats him by 16 points. honestly, watching them run against each other would be worth it just for the fit trump would throw if he lost to bernie. i mean, trump has a private jet with his name on it.
[ laughter ] he just knows it's the smallest one. now, it should be noted the general election polls at this point don't mean very much. still, there are signs that at least some voters aren't necessarily turned off by sanders' democratic socialism. but first, he has to get to the primary, and he faces a tough road ahead. young voters have helped him get this far. but those same young voters could also pose a problem. >> bernie sanders may be giving hillary clinton a run for her money right now, but he could soon be facing a problem -- a spring break problem. >> many of those college kids are gonna be heading out on spring break just as march voting gets started. >> seth: this speaks volumes to the unpredictability of this election cycle that a candidate who looks like this will possibly be affected by spring break. [ laughter ] but bernie has a plan. he's going to hold his next rally at a senor frog's. [ laughter ] this has been "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with more "late night!"

this morning, you may have noticed that their -- excuse me, i'm sorry, i could be wrong here, but i think i smell smoke, and that could only mean one thing. it's time for "ya burnt!" welcome to burn zone, everybody! we've got a lot of topics to sizzle through, but not a lot of time. over here is the burner. let's turn on the gas and load her up. whoo-hoo-hoo! she's hot today. first up, lifetime appointments. sorry, is this the best way to run the supreme court? who's ever once been happy with their forever decision? do you think your freshman year roommate is still thrilled with his limp bizkit tattoo?

[ laughter ] it always looks like one of you should hold up a sign saying you're sponsored by dave's windows and siding. [ laughter ]
fake winter tans. we all know you didn't go on vacation, so don't show up to work looking like you're auditioning for the red man group. [ light laughter ] a tan in the summer looks good. a tan in the winter looks like a glass of water from flint, michigan. it's just not right. [ audience oohs ] i agree, it's not right. [ laughter ] thank you for agreeing with me. that's the noise i wanted you to make. [ light laughter ] fake winter tans, as much as you try to avoid it, "ya burnt!" oscar pools. all the fun of march madness, but instead of basketball, it's best in sound mixing. also, stop yelling "i had that!" the only time i want to hear someone yelling "i had that" at an oscar party is if they're a swimsuit model and the camera spots leonardo dicaprio. [ light laughter ] but remember, when gambling on the oscars, always bet on black! oops, you can't. oscars, you may be way too white, but you just got burnt!" in addition to the "like" button, facebook now offers
buttons, including love, sad and angry. sorry, but no one looks at the picture of your legs on the beach and thinks, thank god there's a "love" button now. [ light laughter ] how about some useful buttons, like," wait -- who are you?" and "yikes, you have not aged well?" [ laughter ] hey, facebook, react to this, "ya burnt!" [ cheers and applause ] leap years! you show up once every four years. you're like the calendar version of herpes. [ audience oohs ] if leap years came around any less, we'd have to start calling you dad. [ audience oohs ] sadder about dad than herpes, okay. [ light laughter ] also february's already the most depressing month of the year, don't make it any longer. hey, we have an extra day, where should we put it? how about the ass end of the worst month? leap years, here's something extra for you, "ya burnt!" [ applause ] hitler's penis! [ laughter ] according to new research, adolf
deformed penis. so tiny, in fact, i think it's time for "the snap!" >> oh, snap! >> seth: hitler's penis was so small, its least favorite battle was the battle of the bulge. >> oh, snap! >> seth: hitler's penis was so small, i went back in time to kill it but it couldn't find it. [ light laughter ] >> oh, snap! >> seth: hitler's penis was so small, it's a size ss. >> oh, snap! >> seth: hitler's penis was so small, it never came out of hiding. >> oh, snap! >> seth: hitler's penis was so small, his doctor called the condition the d-day inversion. [ laughter ] >> oh, snap! >> seth: hitler's penis was so small, he could na-zi it. [ laughter ] >> oh, snap! >> seth: hitler's penis was so small, it was the original limp bizkit. >> double durst burn! >> seth: hitler's penis, you're little, you're evil, and "ya burnt!"

[ light laughter ] >> seth: you did not. >> i did not. >> seth: now were you actually -- did you go up in an actual helicopter? >> we did. >> seth: you did? >> we had real helicopters that left the ground and those that didn't, that we needed more control over. >> seth: when did you -- >> and it didn't matter if it was real or imagined, i had quite a case of claustrophobia. >> seth: oh, so it wasn't even about being in the air. you just didn't like -- >> no, being enclosed! >> seth: oh, my goodness. >> yeah. even in the studio when they enclosed it. for some reason, they still had
couldn't get out. >> seth: now, you play the head film. >> that's right, lindsey. you, you are a fantastic actor, because usually, you couldn't make it to the head of the secret service if you couldn't sit in a helicopter. [ laughter ] that would eliminate you from the job. yeah, i want to protect the president. into small rooms or helicopters. >> i didn't think about that. i didn't know it. i didn't know it. that's very good. >> yeah. >> seth: it's nice that you've made it this far in your life without having to face your helicopter fears. >> i know. i'm was like, "i'm sorry, guys. i'm sorry fellow actors, but -- wait a minute. where's the lock? have somebody at the ready ready at all times. as soon as they say 'cut,' let me out of here. i need air." >> seth: wow! >> crazy. >> seth: that is -- that's more tension than the missiles. >> and they looked at me as if i were crazy. like, "you can't be for real." >> seth: well, you know what -- >> it's very real. >> seth: now they're gonna learn that you were for real. and now, i know when you did "olympus has fallen" -- which, of course, is the first of these movies -- you didn't have to deal with claustrophobia, but --
like -- >> seth: a desk, like me. see, this is nice, wide open, it's beautiful. but it was incredibly hot, right? did you do -- you had to shoot during a heat wave. >> oh, yeah. we shot in shreveport, louisiana. and i'm a southern girl. i'm from st. petersburg, florida. >> audience: woo! >> seth: you know. southern. it's hot, hot, humid, you know. but not hotter than shreveport. >> seth: shreveport was the hottest you've ever had? >> yeah. yes. i was like, "i've got to be a good girl and go to heaven if hell is hotter than shreveport." [ laughter ] >> seth: that's good. that's what it says when you enter shreveport. >> hotter than hell. >> seth: i want to talk to you about one of the many roles you're known for. the fantastic film, oscar nominated for it as well. >> that's right. that's right. >> seth: you know, any time you're creating a character you play on screen it's difficult. but when you play someone who exists and who -- >> who's beloved. >> seth: so beloved. is it intimidating to take on a role like that? when you have to -- yeah, okay. that's your "yes" face, right? >> that's right. that's right. incredibly. i mean, everyone had been to a
tina turner concert. >> seth: did you get a chance to meet her in the process? >> yes, i did. sort of like bookends. i met her at the beginning. i was working with the choreographer, michael peters, you know, who did all the michael jackson videos, "thriller" and the like. and he would have me in heels was like this, 5-inch heels, doing this. and she didn't sing nice ballads. i mean, she was stomping. >> seth: yeah, moved around. >> she happened to be in los angeles, came to the rehearsal. and she goes, "michael, please, you know, let her do it barefoot. let her learn it first." you know, because i'm no broadway baby. no singer, dancer, actor. so, i was like, "wait a minute, to the left, to the left, to the right." you know? and then at the very end of the project, she came and she actually came to my trailer, she did my makeup. >> seth: oh, what a -- >> knocking on the door, "you need any help? you need anything? can we see --" she was like, "go away." i mean, she came up through a time where she was used to doing her wigs, her costumes, just working five shows a night, and she just had that ethic. she didn't need any glam team squad.
well, it must have been such an accomplishment for you to have her appreciate the performance. >> she really was. she could have been a great psychologist, because she would say, "angela, just do that, and you're perfect. you're perfect." [ light laughter ] >> seth: i'm going to start doing that. >> if i just shrug my shoulders, i'll be tina perfect? oh. >> seth: now, obviously there the challenge is you're playing someone who exists. you've been on "american horror story" now, three years. and you've had to play some stuff -- [ cheers and applause ] this is the opposite of something that you can do research on, on "american horror story." because of -- i guess two seasons back now, you played a woman with three breasts. there you go. >> great. >> seth: get in a little closer, because i feel like you're missing -- that's -- [ light laughter ] so, obviously, that's prosthetics. what is it like walking around -- >> mm-hmm. and imagine, to obtain that dear
>> seth: five men to -- >> you just have to get over it, and just lay there and let them have their way. [ light laughter ] they want to paint, make sure the color is right or the freckles, or whatever else, you know? and they love the cleavage area. and it was just like -- >> seth: that is -- >> it was hard work. >> seth: and when you then walked around set with a second set of cleavage -- >> i wasn't used to that, you know? your robe doesn't behave the way it does with one. it sort of slips and slides. and when you look about and see these odd expressions on the crew's faces, you know something had gone down. [ light laughter ] something had opened up. >> seth: but you probably don't miss it. you're probably very happy to just go back. >> it was very heavy. >> seth: yeah, okay. so you're back to normal. you also -- you had to do a love scene with lady gaga. >> oh, yes. >> seth: now, any love scene, i would imagine, has its awkwardness, but doing it with an international pop star, like, how do you approach it? did you guys -- how much do you talk beforehand about how you're
>> well, only very little, you know? she came to l.a. you know, she invited the cast to her home. it was very nice. you know, had it catered, all of that. she had a rack of swimsuits. she had poured red dye -- you know, because it was about vampires and blood. >> seth: very fitting. >> made the pool red. you know, that kind of thing, under the moonlight. i was like, oh -- >> seth: she told you that's why she did it? i'm sure it's like that all the time. [ laughter ] she was like, "oh, yeah, vampires, yeah." >> you did this special just for us? oh, you're probably right. you're probably right. uh huh. but you know, i walked in, and she came up to me and she had a lovely dress. you know, jewels, but you could see through it. nice thong. that was it. and a diamond-encrusted necklace. i was like, "that's how you host a soiree." [ laughter ] if you're lady gaga. and she says, "so, are you nervous?" and i said, "well, no time to
yes, i am." i'm angela, you're gaga. and we had a wonderful time, the party, and it happened to be my birthday, august 16th, sweet 16. at the end of the party, she brought out a cake. and i was, "oh!" you know, you're so, "oh, that's so sweet of you." and as your eyes settle on the topper of the cake, they're characters, they're persons on the cake in a position that's quite erotic, and you're like, "ah!" [ light laughter ] >> seth: again, every day. she does that every day. [ laughter ] whether people are over or not, that cake comes out. >> is that right. i said to sarah paulson, i said, "well, now that's foreplay." [ light laughter ] you know? >> seth: well, that's fantastic. it worked. i'm going to start getting my wife a cake every night. [ laughter and applause ] >> but i had to get her -- oh! but i had to get her back. she made me nervous. so i had to get her -- >> seth: how did you get her back? >> well, you know, we had these steamy scenes, and we're in elevators. and it's like, go for it. so, we're, supposedly our
going through these decades, and we were changing clothes. we're supposed to be in different positions. and i would just tongue her down -- no, no. [ laughter ] >> seth: no, no. please go. >> i would just, oh, oh. you know, just all in, all in, just all up on her, and you and she walked away and she says, "i'm having angela bassett's baby!" [ laughter ] >> seth: there you go! well, you're so great on that show, and your husband is a fantastic actor as well. >> thank you. >> seth: courtney b. vance. and he's currently playing johnnie cochran in "the people versus o.j. simpson," and he is fantastic. >> he is killing it. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: now, how -- do you watch that show when it's on? >> well, i watched it. what are we up to, episode four? i've seen each episode three times each. [ light laughter ] >> seth: do you watch it together? is it -- >> we do, sometimes. i've watched it alone, i've watched it with him. if you visit me, i'll watch it with you. [ laughter ] any excuse to watch him. fantastic. >> seth: well, you both do fantastic work. so you're very well suited for each other. >> thank you. >> seth: thank you so much for

not much of it's really translatable. but we call it the underwear olympics. pretty much. >> seth: that's very true. >> and i liken it because it's on from 9:00 a.m. all the way through to the late afternoon, sometimes seven, eight hours a day. and it's like the yule log, seth, because it just burns and keeps burning, and you watch it for days on end, and then days into it, you're wondering, "why am i humming the same music over and over again?" >> seth: yes, because i want to say, i really think this speaks to the thirst that the american people have for anything to do with football. >> oh, gosh, yes. >> seth: because with all due respect, this shouldn't be on television. [ laughter ] this is not something for television. >> that is the most respectful way you can say it. and i agree with you. i agree with you. >> seth: yeah, but people will -- i will tune in, i'll watch it, i'll see some person i never before jump and hit something and i'll say, "that's a good jump." >> i want that guy on my team. >> seth: i want that guy. >> i know, that guy can win a super bowl for me, right. >> seth: you mentioned the 40-yard dash. and again, i do believe you've brought some entertainment value to covering the combine.
>> seth: now, how many years in a row has it been? >> this is my 13th year of running the 40-yard dash myself. >> seth: you run the 40-yard dash. you do it in street clothes. oh i'm sorry, you do it -- >> i do it in my work clothes, which is a prada suit -- [ laughter ] that is perfectly tailored for the event. >> seth: yep. >> and i run like the wind, seth. if the wind is particularly slow. >> seth: of your 13 years, which was your fastest? >> 5.98 seconds. >> seth: and what year was that? >> that was two years ago as a 45-year-old man. >> seth: wow, okay, that's great. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. look at these people. >> seth: i think that speaks volumes to the shape you were in as a 35-year-old man. >> yes, it was. >> seth: as opposed to the other. >> i try not to reflect on it, because it's not very pretty. >> seth: and you don't want to get in your head. >> no, but i only know one speed and i have the heartbeat of a champion. seth, either you wake up with it in the morning or you do not. and i wake up with it every day. but bottom line is now i'm doing
>> seth: fantastic. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. and what we're asking people to do is go to nfl.com/runrichrun, and upload you running the 40-yard dash in your work environment in a safe for work way. we don't want anybody getting fired or getting hurt. but upload it and hit the donate button and donate to st. jude's. >> seth: we actually have to give you a sense it looks like when people in their work clothes try to run a 40-yard dash. >> take your mark. [ light laughter ] >> yes. [ laughter ] invariably, someone eats it. and that was that person. >> seth: now, obviously, we're not too far away from the super bowl, and i know this to be true, you are friends with
>> yes. >> seth: and such good friends with snoop dogg that you got him credentials, press credentials for the post super bowl press conference. >> well, snoop is a die-hard football guy. he is actually one of the pre-eminent youth football coaches in america. he is a die-hard steeler fan. >> seth: i know that. i know that. >> and so, he said he wanted to be part of the nfl media, part of the paparazzi, so to speak, when he's done rapping. so, i said i'll credential you for the super bowl. >> seth: i think you made a great call, because we're going to show a clip from peyton manning's press conference. >> yes. >> seth: and he asked peyton the question after the game that i think -- i think he's the only reporter that had the balls to ask it. >> a burning question. >> seth: a burning question. let's take a look. >> peyton, snoop dogg from "the rich eisen show." first of all, can i get a 50% discount on papa john's pizza when i'm in the state of colorado? >> absolutely. [ laughter ]
[ applause ] and right away, he let everybody know -- he let everybody know you were the reason he was there. >> it's news that you can use, yes. or at least the coupon he can use when he goes to denver. >> seth: one of the other things that you get to do around the super bowl is you get to interview the halftime acts. >> yeah. >> seth: and you've interviewed madonna. is it true madonna was nervous? i guess it makes sense people get nervous. >> madonna was nervous about the super bowl. she was nervous about the event because the stage gets put together in eight minutes. >> seth: it is crazy to see live. >> and then the free world watches. and so, i realized halfway through the interview that i could help madonna calm down, which is, you know, a dream of mine. >> seth: sure. [ laughter ] >> and i just, like, "madonna, help me help you. everything's going to be fine. you'll get the stage put together, you'll crush it," and then the event happens, and she's brought out by these guys dressed in roman togas on this
thing. and i thought to myself, "why would anybody be nervous about that?" >> yeah. >> you know? >> seth: that's just a normal way of going about things. >> yeah, kind of. but she was nervous. mick jagger, i interviewed him one year, and he broke down super bowl xl between the steelers and the seahawks like he was doing that professionally. >> seth: really? >> yes, and that if i could play guitar, i would suggest we swap roles. and there was another moment when i interviewed billy joel, because he did the national anthem. >> seth: okay. >> and this was after his press conference, before which he was in the nfl network green room and the nfl came to him and said, "look, billy, when you go out there for your question-and-answer period, just do us a favor. if you're asked about the length of your national anthem, don't answer that question, because it's a gambling question." >> seth: people can gamble on -- >> they wager on how long the national anthem will last. in fact, this year when lady gaga did it, she sang, you know,
brave," and then said "the brave" again. she double braved, seth. [ laughter ] >> seth: now, does that count? because the second "brave" to me, the national anthem's over on the first "brave." >> being an nfl employee i'm like the unfrozen caveman lawyer when it comes to gambling. the terms confuse me. i don't understand it. but from what i understand, you don't double brave. it never happens in the history of the super bowl, double braving. at any rate, she put it over as opposed to under with the double brave. so, when billy joel went out there to his press conference, he said, "i understand, i won't do that." he gets up there and he goes, listen with his thick new york accent, he says listen, i'm so excited to be here at the super bowl to sing the national anthem, i think it will be around 2 minutes, 12 seconds, 2 minutes, 14 seconds -- [ laughter ] right around there like that. and people are like -- [ laughter ] oh william. >> seth: and let me tell you something about billy joel, single braver. never done the double brave. >> no. you don't double brave. >> seth: not in new york city. we get it on the first brave. >> right. >> seth: thank you for being here. have a great time in indianapolis. >> of course. i appreciate that. thanks pal.
