stay tuned for "late night with seth meyers." thank you for watching. have 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 -- laura dern, chat and music from fergie. featuring the 8g band with mark guiliana. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: good evening. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] great to hear.
in that case, let's get to the news. alabama senator-elect doug jones said yesterday president trump called him and was very gracious while congratulating him on his win. that story again, somebody prank-called doug jones. [ laughter ] the fcc today voted 3-2 along party lines to repeal obama-era net neutrality rules. and if you're not sure what that means, better google it while you can. [ laughter ] according to cnn, anderson cooper's tweet yesterday calling president trump a pathetic loser came from someone using his assistant's phone that was left unattended at the gym. wait a minute. you can have your assistant go to the gym for you? [ laughter ] this is a game-changer! a game-changer! [ applause ] i will see you all tomorrow night on "late night with seth muscles."
[ laughter ] while announcing plans to trim the size of the regulatory code, president trump today cut a red ribbon with an oversized scissors that was draped across stacks of paper. then, because of all the regulations he repealed, the scissors fell apart, a dolphin choked on the ribbon, and the paper burst into flames. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] a conservative pundit published an editorial in the "washington post" yesterday, calling president trump the nation's worst president. or as sarah sanders put it, president trump is one of the top 45 presidents of all time. [ laughter and applause ] white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders tweeted photos of a pie she was baking yesterday. and you can be sure it's a pie, because she said so. [ laughter ] walmart has removed a seven-foot-tall marijuana christmas tree that was rece
advertised on its website -- because they sold it. [ laughter and applause ] "i'll take that one. yeah, put it on my car." today was roast chestnuts day. roast chestnuts? all right, i'll try. hey, chestnuts, your mama so fat, she an actual tree. [ laughter ] [ applause ] that was pretty good. the cleveland cavaliers have reportedly signed a deal to have the logo for hot pockets appear on their jerseys in the video game, "nba 2k18." oh, good, finally people who play video games will find out about hot pockets. [ laughter ] that's right. the logo for hot pockets will appear on the cavaliers' jerseys in the video game "nba 2k18." incidentally, 2k18 is also the number of calories in a hot pocket. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a fantassh
from "star wars: the last jedi," the incredible laura dern is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] she is the host of a new singing competition show, "the four: battle for stardom" which premiers in january on fox, and later in the show she'll be performing a track from her latest album, "double dutchess." fergie is here, everybody! [ cheers and applause ] before we get to all of that, today a federal communications commission voted to repeal the obama-era net neutrality rules. meanwhile, the trump white house is once again consumed by petty dramas. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: today the republican-led fcc voted to dismantle the free and open internet by repealing former president obama's net neutrality rules, which were designed to ensure that all web traffic is treated equally, and prevents service providers from blocking or filtering content they don't want you to see. the fcc is led b
is best known for both his opposition in net neutrality and for the size of his coffee mug. >> greetings, chairman pai. mindy hill with thedcvoice.com. >> hi. >> and i just have a comment. during the obama administration, the fcc had no jurisdiction -- [ laughter ] -- over regulating programming. >> seth: i'm sorry, but you can't just drink from a mug that size without any explanation. [ laughter ] was the mug always that big? or did you shrink? are you sharing an office with rick moranis? is that why you want to limit the internet, so people can't go online and make memes about you and your giant coffee mug? [ laughter ] now, polls show that americans overwhelmingly support net neutrality, with 83% overall in favor of keeping the fcc rules, including 75% of republicans, and it makes sense republicans would favor an open internet. otherwise they would have to get their news from newspapers or
cnn, instead of facebook group "patriot eagle maga 1776." [ laughter ] net neutrality ensures an open and democratic internet where people can make and access content equally. but pai has argued that limiting regulation of the internet would actually encourage companies to innovate more, and he keeps using one phrase in particular. >> until 2015, we had light touch regulation. the consumer is best served with light touch regulation. it's under that light touch framework -- light touch regulation -- light touch regulation -- and that's the kind of success that we want to promote in the future with light touch regulation. >> seth: please stop using the term "light touch." you sound like someone defending themselves to hr. [ laughter ] "what did deborah say i did? that was a light touch! [ applause ] you were there! it was light!" and yet, despite the potentially disastrous consequences of this vote, d.c. and the trump white house in particular have been consumed once again by chaos and drama, like, for example the firing of long-time trump ally omarosa. now, omarosa'sic
director for the office of public liaison. but no one was ever really sure exactly what she did in the white house. in fact, before she was fired, all anyone had ever heard about omarosa's time in the white house was that she held a photo shoot with her bridesmaids there in april before getting married. politico reported that omarosa brought members of her 39-person bridal party to 1600 pennsylvania avenue for an extended wedding photo shoot, catching fellow senior aides and some security officials by surprise in her bridal attire. the visitors loudly wandered around, looking to snap photos in the rose garden and throughout the west wing. oh, my god, trump's staff treats the white house the way tourists treat the m&m store. [ laughter ] "i want a picture with the green one!" [ laughter ] also, 39 bridesmaids? is it a massive wedding or are you just trying to make one friend feel really terrible? [ light laughter ] "i'm sorry, becky, the max was 39 and you're my 40th best friend."
now apparently, it was chief of staff john kelly who did the firing, although trump signed off on it, reporting that was confirmed by april ryan, white house correspondent of american urban radio networks, in one especially great moment when ryan called back to trump's famous catch phrase. >> so general kelly had had enough and he'd finally gotten the president to sign off. and last night it did not end well. >> she was a contestant on "the apprentice," president trump's former tv program, so they have a history. they go way back. >> and she was fired again. >> twice, yes. [ light laughter ] >> all right. i don't know if he said, "you're fired." >> he didn't say "you're fired" but general kelly said, "you're fired." >> all right. everybody stand by. there's more news. >> seth: damn, look at her sipping from her mug while she says that. the only way that would have been better, if she had ajit pai's mug. [ laughter ] today on "good morning america," omarosa claimed that the stories about her exit from the white house were not true. specifically, she refuted reports that she blew up at kelly and had to be escorted off the white house premises. in fact, omarosa said she didn't make a scene and thall
fired her in a very private place. >> i resigned, and i didn't do that in the residence, as being reported. john kelly and i sat down in the situation room, which is a very secure, very quiet room in the white house. >> seth: wow, the situation room. though i have a feeling any room omarosa goes into becomes a situation room. [ laughter ] seriously, you know it's bad when they have to fire you in the same place they killed osama bin laden. [ laughter ] omarosa -- [ cheers and applause ] omarosa also claimed she had a story to tell, and would eventually tell that story once her tenure at the white house is officially over. and later when the "gma" anchors were discussing the interview, robin roberts gave her the perfect sendoff. >> she said she has a story to tell. i'm sure she'll be selling that story. >> we'll see. >> yeah, she will. bye, felicia. >> seth: damn. [ laughter ] damn!
off that way. that's how edward r. murrow should have signed off during the mccarthy era. "good night, good luck, and bye, felicia." [ laughter ] now, of course it's never fun to relish anyone's firing, but omarosa routinely attacked trump's critics and even went so far as to threaten people who crossed him. and while robin roberts might have been ice cold, others were less muted in their reactions to omarosa's firing, like cnn commentator, angela rye. >> brooke, i'm gonna do what you can't do and what april and symone are too good of people to do, and that's just be petty for a minute. ahh-ha-ha-ha-ha! [ laughter ] >> oh, angela. oh, angela. >> bye, girl! bye! goodbye, good riddance, goodbye. >> angela, you know i have much love for you. but you know what, i don't delight in anyone's demise. >> i'm not delighting in her demise. i wish her the best, but ahh-ha-ha! [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i'm not sure you can real
when it's followed by this -- >> ahh! >> seth: when she did that, i'm pretty sure the closed captioning said, "i wish her the best -- psych!" [ laughter ] but of course, omarosa is not the only long-time trump acolyte who's suddenly on the outs. there's also former white house chief strategist steve bannon, an early and vocal backer of roy moore in alabama. bannon went to war with the gop establishment, and managed to lose a senate seat in arguably the most republican state in the country. and that has led to many republicans turning on him. like new york republican congressman peter king, who did not hold back in an interview on cnn on wednesday. >> why bannon? why is he such a big deal? >> i was even ready -- not even so much as a political issue. almost as a moral issue. this guy does not belong on the national stage. he looks like some disheveled drunk that wandered on to the political stage. [ laughter ] >> seth: hey, peter king, you doing my job now? [ laughter ] i'll do the looks-like jokes around here. steve bannon looks like a cop who went under cover to solve a
case, and then they forgot to tell him the case was solved, so he just stayed under cover for another ten years. [ applause ] "i got a lead!" so republicans on the fcc are trying to dismantle the free and open internet despite overwhelming opposition, and the trump white house is consumed once again by petty drama. i don't know how long it will be until republicans are kicked out of office, but when it happens, i hope it's reported like this. >> bye felicia. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with laura dern, everybody.

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ >> seth: how are you? >> i'm so good! so happy to be back! >> seth: i'm so happy to have you back. and we were saying backstage, this is a very important appearance for you because if it wasn't for this -- >> yeah. >> seth: no one would know about "star wars." >> it's true. [ laughter ] it's really true. i want to thank the show. >> seth: yeah. this is -- i think this is, you know, going to help those box office numbers. >> yeah, it's really exciting. it's a little film. it needs support. and you're so generous to help them. >> seth: it's a tiny indy film. you've had such an incredible year. and i want to ask about "star wars," but i also want to congratulate you on your golden globe nomination. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you! >> seth: that -- was that just an incredible experience? it seems as though that cast was
uncommonly close. is that safe to say? >> yes. we are a group texting family at this point. >> seth: that's really nice to hear. >> it's really amazing. and reese witherspoon and i had done the film "wild" together and then literally kind of rolled right into "big little lies" and we were all friends so it's amazing. and it's very rare as actresses growing up, to have any other women, sadly, in cast or crew, and that's changing more and more. >> seth: yeah. >> so very exciting. >> seth: yeah. it must have been an incredibly empowering experience. and now i'm assuming all the other golden globes -- your first visit to the golden globes was 1982. >> yes. >> seth: you were miss golden globes. which i believe means you were like assisting with the trophies? >> passing out of the trophies. >> seth: you -- this year, i think it's very safe to say you will arrive in a limousine. as is -- that is how people arrive. >> yes. >> seth: 1982, not how you arrived. >> no, no. >> seth: how did you -- >> and if you were hosting in 1982, you, like me -- well, i wouldn't say you would have been driven by my grandmother in her toyota corolla.
but that could have -- if you wanted a ride. >> seth: was that -- so you went in your grandmother's toyota corolla. >> yes. yes. to the award show. and changed in the bathroom with everybody else. and everybody's there, and they're driving their car. and i think the oscars were like that too. >> seth: really? >> it's a dinner party and then everybody went home. >> seth: that's so -- it's just funny when you think about the golden globes, you don't think about someone saying like, "i'll pick you up afterwards!" [ laughter ] >> i know. or, "can you guys validate?" only if you win. >> seth: and you were in exceptional television. again, we were talking, not only "big little lies," but also "twin peaks" which was absolutely fantastic. and it must have been so much fun to work with david lynch again. >> amazing. >> seth: yeah. >> i've been working with him since i was 17 on "blue velvet." and he's -- >> seth: who dropped you off at "blue velvet"? do you remember? [ laughter ] >> i think it was dennis hopper. >> seth: yeah. >> and it was a very troubling drive. >> seth: yeah that is -- i would imagine the difference between grandma dropping you off and dennis hopper is a massive gap. [ laughter ]
picture i want to see. >> seth: yeah, exactly. your grandmother, dennis hopper. so i know people must ask about david lynch all of the time. but i always ask people, and it seems, and you can confirm this, he's a lot funnier and lighter in spirit than you would assume from the darkness of his material. >> yes. he's hilarious. and amazing. and i would say the two questions i get asked the most are -- and i want them to be morphed into one question. "what is david lynch really like?" and "was that really dinosaur poop you put your hand in? [ laughter ] >> seth: oh wow. >> and i just -- i feel like they sometimes go together in the same conversation. >> seth: do you think david lynch is upset that you put your hand in dinosaur poop in a movie and it wasn't one of his? >> very upset. [ laughter ] >> it's somehow -- >> seth: he's like, "i do all this weird stuff and then you went elsewhere to have your dinosaur poop scene." >> yeah. thanks to steven spielberg. >> seth: yeah, there you go. and so i heard a story about david lynch and you laughing so hard on set and the crew laughing so hard on the set, that you had to stop and film it
>> that is true. on "wild at heart", nicholas cage and i have a scene in which i have to tell a very absurd and hilarious story to us over and over again. and we started at about noon. and at 3:00 a.m., we had to call the day. because we couldn't stop. and there was one take where i was starting to tell the story about my cousin dell, who is obsessed with cockroaches, i won't say any more, it gets really inappropriate. and we got through it, and david had now put a bandana around his mouth so i couldn't see him laughing. the crew kept it together, nicolas cage kept it together, it was all perfect, and i say the line that was making us laugh hysterically, and i look up, and the boom -- the mic is above me, and it's shaking. [ laughter ] and i'm looking at it as i get through the line and i see the sound man just laughing hysterically and we had to go home and start again the next day. [ laughter ] >> seth: that is fantastic. it's been very strange for you doing press recently, because of "star wars", obviously. yo
they don't want you to ruin it. i know you're going to do another season of "big little lies," you really probably can't talk about that that much. "twin peaks" you haven't -- has that been strange to do press for projects that are so under wraps? >> i'm the most boring interview possible. >> seth: that's not true. >> thank you for having me here, because i can't say a thing. [ laughter ] i mean literally, i can't wait for everyone to see "star wars," because all i can say is, yes, i can confirm i have purple hair in the film. >> seth: oh there you go. that's nice of you to confirm that much for us. [ cheers and applause ] >> and it's a great color. i recommend it. >> seth: were you -- did they let you give them feedback on the color of purple? >> yes. >> seth: oh, they did? that's nice. >> yeah. >> seth: see? you have a successful enough career, and they let you choose your purple. >> isn't that beautiful? yeah. >> seth: that's well-deserved. are -- is your family excited about "star wars"? either generation? >> they are. everybody. >> seth: yeah. >> i mean, my kids. i'm thrilled that my kids are actually going to get to see me in something. >> seth: yeah. >> i can talk about the film. [ laughter ] not that you don't start kids on
>> seth: right. [ laughter ] >> i haven't. >> seth: your kids are like, i have a lot of questions about "wild at heart." >> yeah, exactly. but my parents took me to see "star wars" when i was 7 years old. it's -- >> seth: yeah. >> i mean, we're all obsessed, aren't we? it is a cultural phenomenon. >> seth: and this is a photo -- i am assuming this is from the premier. is that accurate? >> yes. from our press in london. >> seth: and this must be exciting, as well. one of the things about these new "star wars" movies is there's so many strong female characters. is that really exciting to be a part of this generation of "star wars"? >> it really is incredible. and let's say, as a deep homage, we had the greatest muse possible in princess leia, our beloved carrie fisher. so -- yes -- [ applause ] so to continue that tradition and have "star wars" and the incredible producers working on the film and ryan johnson who wrote and directed it, have these incredible female, complid,
really exciting. >> seth: you mentioned "jurassic park." is that a film -- you say a lot of people ask you about it. is that a film your children have found, and are they impressed with that? >> uh -- i think so. well my daughter actually just saw it for the first time at halloween. >> seth: oh wow. >> her friends wanted to see it. and for years, she was like, are you kidding? i do not want to see my mother being chased by a raptor. that is not interesting to me. [ laughter ] >> seth: you mean -- does she in general play the cool card of i'm not interested in seeing mom in movies? >> she's really interested in movies. but me in jeopardy wasn't deeply interesting. >> seth: okay. oh, that's very sweet of her that she didn't want to see you get chased by dinosaurs. >> but my son seemed fine. [ laughter ] get her! >> seth: he's like, "i feel like one of the dinosaurs would have caught you, mom." [ laughter ] >> yeah, exactly. i've seen you run, girl. >> seth: um and -- but when she saw it, was she happy? did she think it was cool? >> she thought it was cool.
and now they have both seen "star wars" a few days ago and i think they were really excited by that too, so. >> seth: i think "jurassic park" -- and i know there is another one of those coming as well, which i'm sure you can't tell me a word about. so i won't even ask. >> tell you -- >> seth: yeah. but i will say, it still strikes me that that moment of seeing dinosaurs for the first time in "jurassic park", like what movies were before that moment and what movies were after that moment is one of those huge gaps that in the theater, you realize. i still remember that awe. >> well it's incredible that when we were making it, people now have said, "wow, you know, being part of a blockbuster, what did that feel like?" but it felt like any other kind of incredible, independent film, in that it was a pioneered film, because cgi hadn't really happened. >> seth: right. >> so steven spielberg was there inventing with these brilliant men, like ilm and sam winston who did the animatronics like how to create these creatures. and it was awe-inspiring. >> seth: yeah. and you were then one of the
actor go like this -- >> yes. >> seth: to something that was not there. >> exactly. yes. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> the mouth-agape shot from jurassic park has been -- people are like, "oh, my god, you're the one that goes --" >> seth: and it was probably just a guy with like a tennis ball and a stick. >> yeah it was an 'x' on a tennis ball. exactly right. also scary. >> seth: yes, exactly. but i think, again, that is a credit to your incredible talents as an actor. >> very sweet. >> seth: i am always so happy to have you here. congratulations on the movie. i can't wait to see you at the golden globes. best of luck. [ cheers and applause ] >> me too! me too. >> seth: laura dern, everybody. "star wars: the last jedi" will be in theatres everywhere tomorrow. we'll be right back with fergie, everyone.

really just -- lifted everything, and just got down to the heart and soul of myself, and everyone. >> seth: are those painful to write or triumphant to write? like, when you do write a song like that, is it difficult or does it actually come out quickly and you're like, oh, how cathartic? >> no, no, i feel like it's a huge release. i'm a huge believer in not keeping emotions in, and holding resentments and all these weird things inside. you know, you feel something, you've got to get it out somehow. i'm blessed to be able to do it in lyrics. with my voice. so that you can hear it. and now in the video. but this song is really, really personal. because it's about -- it's about being imperfect. and really, kind of saying, okay, we're all imperfect in some way. we all have something. maybe not you. >> seth: no, i've got some. [ laughter ] my video comes out tomorrow. it's pretty -- [ laughter ] >> yeah, yeah, yeah. okay, okay. >> seth: yeah. >> but, yeahst
of that, you know -- people are so mean. and just getting all that -- those negative doubts and fears and all those things that are in your way, just kind of clearing those out, moving forward, flaws and all. and triumphing over whatever it is that's negative that could be holding you back. >> seth: that's fantastic. >> yeah. >> seth: i'm so glad that you did that. you -- [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. >> seth: so, your son -- >> you're gonna make me cry right now. >> seth: oh, no. >> i was getting the emotions out seth. >> seth: your son was in the video. you -- >> yes. >> seth: you were in a cookie commercial when you were seven years old? >> i was. >> seth: we have a still of it. that is you. that is young fergie right there. [ audience aws ] >> yes. >> jimmy: and it was for duncan hines cookies, is that correct? >> yes, yes. >> seth: and do you remember the duncan hines jingle? >> i think -- well, yeah. i do. >> seth: can we hear it? >> i was seven, i think it was my first national commercial. i love this really cool barrette that's going on. >> seth: y e
>> seth: also, you can tell it's well before there was hd. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: that could be on tv and you'll be like, all right, i'll still buy those cookies. >> it was just like the built-in filters back then. >> seth: yeah. >> i actually liked the filters that were back then. >> seth: yeah, no it's not bad at all. >> you know, i don't mind it. yeah, the song goes -- are you ready for it? >> seth: yeah. ♪ crispy chewy crispy chewy brand new duncan hines are crispy chewy ♪ ♪ tasted like my mom's does ♪ ♪ the only one that's so much fun the only one ♪ ♪ that tastes like mom's does ♪ >> seth: that's fantastic and -- [ cheers and applause ] >> cheesy! cheesy bites. >> seth: i watched the commercial today, and the original was 100 times less sexy than that. [ laughter ] i feel like what you did was not about a cookie. [ laughter ]
>> maybe it was less -- [ applause ] seth! >> seth: oh! >> where is your mind! you need to get the clean version of "double dutchess." >> seth: i want the clean version of the duncan hines song. [ laughter ] so you are -- you have -- so you're on this -- judge on a singing show. >> yes. >> seth: you have incredible company. diddy, dj khaled, meghan trainor. yes? >> yes, dj khaled -- >> seth: khaled, sorry. you know, by the way, he was here, and i said it wrong too. >> oh okay, that's your thing. okay. >> seth: my thing is getting it wrong, yeah. [ laughter ] so -- but you are -- are you sort of a tough love judge? how would you define yourself as a judge? >> well, i'm not a judge. so let me clarify right now. >> seth: okay, great. okay. >> i am the host. >> seth: oh, excellent. >> yes, i'm like the ring leader in the middle of "the hunger games." and kind of -- in my own mind. yeah. "the four" on fox starts january 4th. and basically, we start were all competition shows end. we start with this final fou
worldwide search for. >> seth: oh, great. >> like they're the best. >> jimmy: so you take it up there. >> and then we have challengers each week that come on. and they have to convince the panel of diddy, dj khaled, meghan trainor, charlie walk, head of republic records, by the way. >> seth: okay, great. >> convince them that they have a chance to -- that they have the right to challenge one of the final four for their seats. >> seth: oh, wow. >> yeah. they do one song, they either get to challenge or they don't. >> seth: and do you -- when you deal with this young talent, how do you feel like you present yourself to them? >> you know what, it's funny, because i'm right there with them. because i'm sitting there -- the panel is here. the four are there. and i'm right there with these challengers. and i really feel like i'm kind of like the nurturer. like the mother of it all. >> seth: that's nice. >> because i just want to hug them all. >> seth: that's a good instinct. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: yeah. >> it's good, because -- >> seth: yeah, exactly. >> good one to have. but, yeah. these challengers, yno
they're either going through or they've got to take some tough criticism. this isn't the warm and fuzzy feel-good for everybody show. it's competitive. >> seth: that's good. >> it's do or die. so it's like, you know, when they say things, they say them with love, but it's tough love. >> seth: well, that's the music industry. >> yeah. >> seth: i would assume usually probably much tougher than that. >> yeah, absolutely, absolutely so if you see me hugging everybody on the show. i'm just -- i want them to feel good. >> seth: you're just hugging. you're just being kind. >> yeah. >> seth: i want to ask you about something else. 'cause i imagine this happens to you. that if you ever go into a club, the deejay -- if the deejay knows you're there, they will play one of your songs. is that accurate? >> yeah, that's accurate i think for most music artists. >> seth: yeah. but i bet not like -- i bet if like james taylor goes into a nightclub, they don't put on -- "fire and rain." >> no, i'm sure they would do a mashup. are you kidding me? >> seth: oh yeah, that's true. >> no they would do -- >> seth: that's right, deejay has to do work. >> and it's really funny, because you have to -- one of basically three things you can do. >> seth: when they play your song. >> you come in, they're playing the song.
song, everybody looks at you. >> so, everybody looks at you, even if they're trying not to, they're still glancing. so you can either just give them a what up, hey! cheers! like, yeah, i know. cool. you know, just try to play it off that way. or you can totally ignore it and just be like you're in deep conversation. >> seth: so, you're so cool -- >> yeah. >> seth: this means nothing to me. >> yeah, you can do that, because yeah -- i don't know. >> seth: i'm so used to my success, this means nothing. >> or if you're just feeling awkward and you don't feel like engaging, whatever. you're just really deep in conversation. >> seth: okay, gotcha. what's three? >> three is, and i've done this sometimes. you just own it, grab the mic and just start going with it. >> seth: really? >> yep. >> seth: you just, sing along with yourself? >> yeah, just kind of hype the crowd and just -- >> seth: and that i would imagine for the crowd is the perfect outcome. >> you know, go big or go home. >> seth: yeah. i think that's excellent, excellent advice. [ cheers and applause ] and thank you for being here! thank you for sticking around! >> thank you! >> seth: we can't wait to see your song! fergie, everybody!

>> seth: welcome back! now if i may, there is something that i need to get off my chest. recently, i went to a dinner party at a friend's apartment, but as i was coming through the front door, they stopped me and asked me to take my shoes off first. and i'm sorry, but i just have to say this. i'm not taking my shoes off for nobody! >> at this point in the broadcast, seth launched into a 60-second obscenity-laden and tirade about shoes-free households and how in his opinion they are oppressive and patronizing. [ laughter ] network policy prevents us from broadcasting his comments. but due to a technical issue, we were forced this air this portion of the show. in short, seth believes that shoe-free households are little tyrant kingdoms run by vacuum-horny crumb nazis. he went on to say, are you worried that i'm going to track dog poop into your apartment? news flash, if i bring dog poop in to your apartment, i'll do it the way i was raised to, in a fancy little box. [ laughter and applause ] seth then went on about how crazy it is to ask someone to remove their clothing, asking, where does it end? are you going to come for my shirt? my wallet? before i know it, you're going to want to
he said that taking shoes off was a slippery slope, literally, as he has often slipped in house holds when wearing only socks. adding, and then suddenly i'm the villain for trying to break my fall by grabbing the urn that held your grandfather's ashes. [ laughter ]e at this point, seth complained about losing his shoes in the show pile by the door. "it's happened to all of us," he continued. "when you leave at the end of the dinner party and don't realize until you get home that you're wearing someone else's shoes." [ applause ] at which point an intern said, "that's never happened to me." to which seth replied, "oh, really, so those are the shoes you came in." at which point the intern looked down and said, "oh, no." he then rushed off slowly and with difficulty. [ laughter and applause ] seth then warned everyone of the dangers of walking around in socks. stating incorrectly that static electricity is the number one cause of ibs, which he claimed is an acronym for insane butt syndrome.
and in a very tense moment, looked directly in the camera and said, "friends don't let friends get foot splinters." nbc would like viewers to disregard seth's opinions about shoe-free households as they do not reflect the network's position and do not make any sense. we now resume our broadcast. >> seth: and if the shoe fits, go shove it up your kiester! woo!
