lunchables." [ laughter ] "i mean, you've got turk, cheese and cracker, obviously. turk and cracker. you've got turk and cheese, no cracker. two turks, two crackers, one cheese." [ laughter ] "one turk, two crackers, two cheese." obama says, "yeah, that's great, joe." 12:12, obama tells the students they should never be afraid to ask questions. that's true. 12:13, biden says, "hey, speaking of questions, what if you take two turkey discs and put them around a slice of cheese? it's like a cheese sandwich, but with turkey for the bread." [ laughter ] "can you imagine? it sounds crazy, but with lunchables, anything is possible." [ laughter ] "i mean, maybe that could be their slogan. [ applause ] 'with lunchables, anything is possible!' or maybe, 'lunchables, lunch time, any time.' [ laughter ] or 'lunchables, get your lunch on.'"
obama says, "will you please be quiet?" 12:14, biden rubs tummy and looks at obama.

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thanks for coming out. good man. >> that's the coolest thing i've ever seen. you got it. >> jimmy: it is. right? >> i'm taking it home with me, that's for sure. >> jimmy: i think razor makes them, those razor scooters. they make those things. but that's as fast as i'll go. i'm terrible -- i'm really nervous. >> you looked pretty scared, i have to say. >> jimmy: really? yeah, that's my normal face when i'm on anything. yeah. >> it was pretty terrifying. >> jimmy: i can't drive, either. i'm a terrible driver, as well. >> well, i can't drive out in the states, that's for sure. 'cause you guys are driving on the wrong side of the road out
here. >> jimmy: yeah, unless you're a mailman. >> right, right, yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: no, what i'm talking about. the steering wheel's on the wrong side. he drives on the right side of road. [ laughter ] that's why i don't drive. the whole thing's a nightmare. i never knew you were british. >> yeah, i am. not a lot of people do. well, now they'reeginning to be aware. >> jimmy: 'cause you do such a good american accent. i saw "son of rambo," and you're in that movie and you're fantastic in that. >> thank you vey much. >> jimmy: as well, but i knew you from "gossip girl" before that. i'm like wait, "is he doing a british accent or is doing a really good american accent?" >> well, i mean, my co-star chace crawford once made a joke that i learned to do it. and base the accent, base chuck bass's accent on carlton banks from the "fresh prince of bel-air." [ laughter ] i'm pleased to tell you that that's not where i do my research. >> jimmy: alfonso ribeiro, that was great. >> i'm not taking anything away from the man, it was a great show. but i didn't use a dialect coach, which is kind of the mo traditional approach. but it was something that i just thought about. and thought about the way i wanted the character to sound, and, you know, luckily, it came
out sounding okay. >> jimmy: it sounds really good. and you're taking the city by storm. the show's huge. especially here in new york city. are you loving it? >> i mean, it's been a whirlwind, definitely. i moved here from england. i'm from a relatively small town just outside london. and so i came to new york, and everything happened, which is -- with "gossip girl," which has just been crazy. and it really it's just been an explosion. but on the mode of how the city's been treating me, i was out with some friends a little while ago, we were celebrating a birthday. and i went outside of this place where we were, and i'm outside for a few minutes, and this guy comes up to me and asks me -- very, very nicely, asks if i can spare any money. now, i was kind of, you know, i just got in new york. very excited. for the first time in my life, i've got a little something for myself, a little of my own money or whatever. and i'm feeling generous, i'm like, "yeah, man, take it." i open up the wallet, and i had like $20 in there, and give him that.
then i was just like "do you know what, i'm going to do something more for you. i'm taking you to the deli, and i tell him, "you get whatever you want, sandwich, drinks, whatever." so we get him in some bits and pieces, and then i'm -- we're leaving the deli, and i'm like, "you know what, man, i want you to meet my friends. i want to take you in -- i want to show you --" [ laughter ] "i want to take you and i want to show you the real heart that i have tonight." and so i take him into this place, and i introduce him to all of my friends and i buy him a couple drinks. and a little bit of time goes past, and he taps me on the shouer and he says, "dude, i've got to take off now." and i'm like, "where do you have to go?" and he's like, "well, i'm going home." [ laughter ] >> i thought this guy was homeless, okay? [ laughter ] i was sure this guy was homeless. little did i know he's been taking me for a ride for about three hours. [ laughter ] squishing the generosity of a fair enish soul. [ laughter ] so i've got my wits about me now. >> jimmy: i just want to explain that i was drunk at the time.
[ laughter ] so i didn't know where i was. that was nice. that's a crazy man. that's all he was. >> crazy, man. for a better word, yeah. a conman. >> jimmy: i can't think of a better word. >> a conman. >> jimmy: the lines of the show in your real life are blurred a lot of the time. because i read in the paper something that happened to you, and then i see on the show, and i go -- like, are you still roommates with -- chace? >> we're not anymore. he deserted me. no -- >> jimmy: oh, that's sad. >> no, no, it wasn like that. we lived together for two years, and the funny thing is, how art is imitating life. because here is the exclusive. my character, chuck bass, and chace's character, nate archibald, will be living together in the show. so there's your excusive. >> jimmy: a little scoop. >> a little scoop. >> jimmy: my gosh, i got to twitter this. >> i'm already doing it. >> jimmy: you're doing it now? how? that's amazing. >> with my toes -- my shoe. >> jimmy: with your mind. >> exactly. >> jimmy: wait, so you guys are going to be roommates? >> yeah, on the show. which is weird, because as i
say, we just kind of stopped living together in real life and we find ourselves back together in fantasy land, so. >> jimmy: we do have -- do you want to give the fans out there a sneak peek of what the season premier is? >> i'd love to see it, yeah. let's have a look. >> jimmy: here we go. >> i'm chuck bass. >> i know. >> i wasn't expecting to see someone like you somewhere like this, so early in the day. >> i'm in need of refuge. it's too hot. >> it's never too hot. >> care to test that theory? >> what if i have a girlfriend? >> chuck bass doesn't do girlfriends. where's your limo? >> gave my driver the day off. >> then i guess we'll have to find someplace else. ♪ >> jimmy: yeah. [ cheers and applause ] smooth! >> thank you very much. >> jimmy: my man. >> thank you very much. >> jimmy: i mean, that is smooth as silk soy milk. is that during a day at a diner,
you're just picking chicks up? >> i think it's like a late afternoon. >> jimmy: that's fantastic. >> it's a clean sho-- >> jimmy: "i'm chuck bass." you say it great. which is why i wanted to play a new game that's sweeping the nation. it's called "bass master." okay? [ laughter ] so what we do is, i'll spin the wheel, and then you go first, then i'll go, and you have to do your best version of "i'm chuck bass." okay? in different scenarios. okay? do you understand? or was that very complicated? >> i do. i understand. >> jimmy: do you guys understand? >> audience: yeah. >> wish me luck. >> jimmy: here we go. i'm spinning for you. >> ooh. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: all right. three-some. this means -- this is a scenario, you just caught your best friend in bed with your mother and aigh-priced call girl. [ laughter ] >> i'm chuck bass. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: pretty good. pretty good. you want to spin for me? >> i'd love to spin for you. >> jimmy: here we go. >> which way we goin'? you want to go this way? >> jimmy: yep. >> jimmy: yeah, sure.
>> oh. >> jimmy: okay. i'm an audience with the pope. i'm chuck bass! [ laughter ] no. [ cheers and applause ] >> i liked it. >> jimmy: all right, one more. one more for you, ready? >> all right. >> jimmy: we'll both do this one. ooh, bad dog. bad dog is a purebred schnauzer pees on your priceless velvet loafers. [ laughter ] you first. >> i'm chuck bass [ laughter ] and then the animal rights people call me. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: there we go. and then i'll do mine. ready? i'm charles bass.
