tv   Jimmy Kimmel Live  ABC  April 4, 2014 11:35pm-12:38am PDT

11:35 pm
or your mobile device. have a great weekend. >> announcer: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- julia louis-dreyfus. michael pena and music from london grammar. with cleto and the cletones. and now, just so you know, here's jimmy kimmel! [ applause ] >> jimmy: welcome. i'm jimmy, the host of your show. thanks for watching.
11:36 pm
thank you for pointing your faces at me. it's very nice, it's very sweet. i want to actually want to begin tonight for thanking so many of you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. you may have heard. i found a tarantula in my swimming pool on sunday. big, hairy tarantula somehow found its way into the bottom of my pool and died. but needless to say, it was disturbing. i thought about moving out of state. i didn't know we had tarantulas in l.a. it seemed like the kardashians were enough here. but we do, it turns out. and this morning i'm happy to report, i removed the tarantula from my pool. in fact, i have video. >> all right, now you're about to see -- that's me.
11:37 pm
i almost fell in. that would have been the end of my life if that had happened. but look at me, cool, fearless. so brave. my wife is videotaping this. so anyway, there it is. i scooped up the tarantula. it's been there since sunday. and i slowly brought it up because you don't want it to come flying out. >> no, no, no! jimmy, that's not funny! what is wrong with you! >> jimmy: i don't know. what is wrong with you for marrying me? i think surprise is important to keep a relationship fresh. hey, speaking of keep things fresh, there is a fresh new secret service scandal. a group of secret service agents went to amsterdam ahead of president obama's visit there monday, but three of them were sent home early after they stayed out all night drinking
11:38 pm
and one of them was discovered passed out in the hallway of the hotel. they sent them all home and they're investigating. i don't know what the big deal is. guillermo guards me drunk every night and you don't see me complaining about it. >> that's right. >> jimmy: spring break. and by the way, maybe even a bigger question is, why does the president even need secret service protection in the netherlands. what is somebody going to do? try to tickle him with tulips? you know, i always thought the secret service agents wore sunglasses to look intimidated. turns out they're just hung over. the nfl made a big announcement yesterday that will greatly impact how players celebrate in the end zone. the league has banned players from dunking over the goal post. this is the move when a player scores a touchdown and he jumps up and pretend to dunk the ball over the crossbar? they're not allowed to do that. from now, you have to gently place the ball in the ref's hands and curtsy. touchdown celebrations are part of the fun, especially if you're at game in the stadium. and it puts the coaches in a difficult position when it comes
11:39 pm
time to try to motivate their team. >> all right. i want you to go out there and give it everything you got. i want you to fight for every inch. and when you fight your way into the end zone, i want you to keep it inside, lock it up! bottle it up! pretend like it never happened. are you ready? >> yes! >> whoa, way too loud. keep it civilized. are you ready? >> yeah. >> no pushing, no shoving. who's the line leader today? >> too enthusiastic. 7, take us out. >> jimmy: it's a real problem. if i want to watch a sport without dunking, eel watch the wnba thank you very much. sorry, ladies. >> facebook is making another
11:40 pm
big purchase. facebook announced they're spending $2 billion on a company called occulus vr. they make virtual reality headsets. she doesn't look crazy at all. can it still be called facebook if we won't see anyone's face anymore? it's like they duct taped an x box to her head. facebook ceo mark zuckerberg said he believes virtual reality is going to be the next big thing. he says immersive virtual reality will change the way we work, play and communicate by eliminating all three of those things. no one will ever need to go outside again. immersive virtual reality is supposed to be the most sophisticated, most cutting edge technology man will ever use exclusively to watch pornography. in toronto tonight, the first
11:41 pm
mayoral debate of 2014, toronto mayor rob ford faced four challengers. he did well, he stayed on message even when a whole 20 seconds sweating through his suit. when rob ford ran for mayor in 2010, his slogan was stop the gravy train. then he realizes he loves gravy. and you need a train to get it there. i thought this was interesting. maybe this is the difference between our countries. none of the other candidates specifically mentioned drugs. they let mayor ford said over and over again he's the only candidate with a proven track record. also the only candidate with a proven crack record. over the course of 90 minutes, the word crack was mentioned one time and it was by a reporter, not by any of his opponents. how is that possible? do i have to do everything for you people? i don't know if they do debates differently in canada in general or this was an exception, but the whole thing was ridiculous. there was a moderator, but there were big chunks in the middle of it where they just let them go at it. >> no way. >> we're here, and as mentioned
11:42 pm
from mayor rob ford. [ all talking at once ] >> that's not true. >> jimmy: no wonder he smoked crack. it preebls the only thing that makes the headaches go away. the nuttiest part of the debate had nothing to do with rob ford. apparently there were more than 40 people running for mayor. city news divide all the lesser known candidates to join in. they cut to this bar, they jammed all of them in there. if you thought rob ford was a character, wait till you see the rest of this group. we had some technical difficulties and were unable to -- we'll get some of this tomorrow, but watch the guy with the white beard who keeps poking his head in the background of every shot. >> their views and opinions on every issue. a few of them, some of them you may remember from their previous lives. others you have never heard of. >> he doesn't have -- >> that bottom line, i clock a lot of hours working really hard and in all those places that youth are. >> what's your main message? >> i would like to thank all the candidates who came here tonight.
11:43 pm
i'm sorry we haven't been able to speak to all of them, but we will be hearing from them over the course of the next seven months. a very long campaign. a long way to go till next october. >> jimmy: are we supposed to wave back? last time i saw that guy, he was naked and wrestling borat in a hallway. another news that might be of special interest, the l.a. kings beat the washington capitals last night. they scored three unanswered goals in the third period to win their fourth in a row. after the game, anze kopitar told fox sports how he was able to score and provided our unintentional goal of the game pop i just figured he was going to open up and i saw some room between the legs and was able to slide it in there. >> jimmy: that was one of the best ones. oh, by the way, the dead lynn to sign up for insurance through the government health care exchange is monday. the enrollment numbers are below what the obama administration was hoping for. and according to new research,
11:44 pm
it may be because americans know almost nothing about health care. the study showed that half of americans heard of health care exchanges and 42% of americans don't know what a deductible is. we're very, very dumb. and on top of that, we're confused. >> what's obamacare? >> how do i sign up? >> what's a deductible? >> is wifi included? >> does obamacare cover tattoo removal for pets? >> will i get reimbursed if my briefcase falls in the toilet? >> is there really a black man that's president? >> is this my baby? >> what is people? >> i'm confused. >> i'm confused. >> i'm confused. >> where are my socks? >> we're all confused. >> are we on tv?
11:45 pm
>> the affordable health care act, paid for by whatever bit coin is. >> jimmy: that's why it's not called the understandable care act. when we come back i'm going to show you a boy who has his tooth removed via helicopter. they attached a helicopter to his face. well, you'll see. plus julia louis-dreyfus, michael pena and londonn grammar. ,, ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] the nissan altima with nasa inspired zero gravity seats. ♪ let it take the weight off your drive. ♪ nissan. innovation that excites. ♪ it's red lobster's lobsterfest! all promotions!

11:50 pm
facebook. he wrote, it is with great sorrow we announce our beloved 17-year-old white tiger friend and brother montecore left us and is now in white tiger heaven. boy, roy didn't hold a grudge. they didn't have a funeral with him. they just made him disappear. because they're magicians. thanks, guys. you got that, right? >> guillermo: yeah, i got it. >> jimmy: this is a forklift driver in the netherlands loading -- those are crates full of fish. loading them ton a truck but he misjudged the height of the truck. and he gets a whole pile of herring on top of him.

and that's how aquaman was born. this is good. a dad from dublin came up with a creative way to pull his son's loose tooth. instead of tying a string around the tooth. and attaching it to a doorknob or something, he tied it to a remote control he could, i guess to make it more fun for the kid. he tied one end to the helicopter and one to his tooth and it actually worked. go. don't worry. >> guillermo: jimmy, jimmy. excuse me, i have a breaking news. >> jimmy: you have a breaking news? really? where did you get breaking news? >> guillermo: you know diddy, he's changing his name back to puff daddy. >> jimmy: you're kidding me.

12:01 am
point. and then it goes like that. it's a sad look. it's halfway between human and clown. sometimes if your eyesight is really out of bounds, you have lipstick out of bounds. everybody know what is that means. it's really bad. >> jimmy: by the way, i'm so happy the deep is coming back. it's been too long. >> thank you. thank you. >> jimmy: i feel like it's -- i know it isn't realistic, but i kind of feel like it is realistic. do people in washington, d.c. follow it? >> they do. in a way that maybe is alarming. i mean, they dig it. they seem to -- and it's very nice. i recently got invited to the white house state dinner. >> jimmy: oh, wow. >> the president of france.
12:02 am
that was very -- actually, it was extraordinary. >> jimmy: was it really? >> i had never been to a skate dinner. and frankly, i have never been right there in the white house. well, that's not true. i was there one other time. >> jimmy: you're not under oath, don't worry. >> thank you, thank you. so i got the most awkward thing happen. because, you know, you get there and you've got so go to all the security. and then what happens is you have to wait in this portico. people line up.
12:03 am
and there's a sergeant of arms there and all sorts of people with medals and braids and guns and swords. and they announce you and you come out. so it would be like secretary of state john kerry and his wife theresa heinz. and so they come out in front of these people with cameras and so on. it's a real -- it feels very pomp and circumstancy. so i'm standing there. i brought my dad because my dad is from france. >> jimmy: oh. >> so we're sitting there waiting to be announced. oh, my good god, i didn't check my face and i need to get my powder. so i open up my clutch and take my powder out and i start to go like this. and the whole powder went flying -- yeah, but wait. my mac powder exploded and it was like a cartoon. there was powder all over the portico, all over the floor. and i'm down on my knees trying to pick up the little pieces. like the head of the naacp right behind me. you just go ahead, go ahead. and i turn to this guy who has the swords and he's supposed to be humorless. do you guys have a dust buster or a vacuum in. >> jimmy: nothing relaxes the secret service more than an cloud of unidentified smoke. >> powder.
12:04 am
unidentified powder. isn't that awful? >> jimmy: did you just exit out the service entrance or something. >> we eventually -- we got through after we -- i mean, i don't know. it was a blur. i was so embarrassed. i was like oh, my god. my dad is saying let it go. just get up. >> jimmy: did he break into the "let it go" song? so did you ever -- did you meet the president? >> yeah, we met the president of france. you go in and you go through all these different rooms. it's really quite thrilling. and there's president obama, president obama hollande and michelle obama. my father speaks fluent french. but i don't. i speak only a little bit.
12:05 am
what am i going to say. wracking my brain. and stephen colbert is there. he speaks a tiny bit of french. what do we say bonsoir. i said hello to president obama. i said bonsoir and i don't know what he's saying. oui, oui, oui. and i went through and then i notice my dad is still -- he's talking to him for an extended period of time. >> jimmy: uh-oh. >> yeah. and so he came back. i said what happened? what did he say? he said that was very strange. i said what? what happened? he said, he spoke french to him and he said in french something like, you know, pleasure to meet you, i'm actually from france. and the president of france said to him. why are you here? and my father said because i'm an invited guest. and then the president of france said well, why do you live in the united states if you're from france? and it was an exceptionally awkward conversation. and that was the end of that. >> jimmy: it's not like the french to be snooty. when we come back, we're going to take a clip from the new season.
