True Confessions with Scarlett Johansson and Mayor Pete Buttigieg
-Here’s how this works.
It’s like a reverse interview. We’re going to take turns
reading a fact about ourselves. It might be true —
it might be a lie. The other players get to
ask you questions, and then they have to come to
a unanimous decision — truth or lie. Scarlett, you’ll go first. Mayor Pete, which envelope
should she open? 1 or 2? -I didn’t follow
any of those directions, but I’m going to wing it. -I’m gonna say number 2.
-Number 2. -Mm-hmm.
-I should open this. -Yep. And then you read it.
-I’m going to read it to you? -And then we get to grill you
until we come up with a unanimous decision. -Oh. I got stung by
a jellyfish on my face while swimming
off the coast of Italy. -On your face?
What year was this? -This was 2009. -Which coast?
-I was off the coast of Sicily. -What kind of swimming stroke?
-Um… I was swimming. I was just doing —
Yeah, I was doing that. -Breaststroke?
-Yeah, the breaststroke. -What color was the jellyfish?
-What color was it? -Yeah. Answer him!
What color was the jellyfish?! Where did it sting you, exactly?
-It was clear. I got stung on my face. -Alright, can I ask —
-I got stung right here. Right here.
-Alright. Can I ask a question? You know what
you’re supposed to do when a jellyfish stings you? -What? -Do you know what
you’re supposed to do when a jellyfish stings you? You know that.
Did you follow protocol? -You want to know whether
somebody [bleep] on my face? -No, I did not — No, no.
No. I said go to the doctor. Go to a doctor is what I meant.
What are you talking about? What are — Is that where
your mind went? -I did not go —
I did not go to a doctor. -You did not.
Did it swell up? -Is that what
you’re supposed to do? Go to a doctor when you
get a jellyfish sting? -Absolutely.
-Okay, yeah, fine. -First thing
you’re supposed to do. -Right.
-In Italy, an Italian doctor. Alright. We’re out of time. Did she get stung by a jellyfish
in the face while swimming? I feel like she’s fun.
She’s also a really good actor. -I’m skeptical on if it
got her on the face. Then she would have seen it. I think she ought to know what
color it is, right? -Yeah, that’s true. Interesting.
-Well, spit it out. [ Drumroll ]
-No, actually, I believe her. -Yeah, I think —
Yeah, we think it did happen. -It happened. -Hey! We’re good!
-Yeah. [ Cheers and applause ]
♪♪ -Where was it?
Well, how did you react? -What? How did I react?
-Yeah. -I was like, “Aah!” And then I just had this
enormous — I mean, it looked — It was, like, “Goonies” bad. -Oh, my God. “Goonies” bad.
Alright. Good. I’m glad we got this.
Alright. It is my turn. Here we go. Which envelope
should I open, Scarlett? -Um…
-1 or 2? -Number 1. Number 1. I should have probably — Well,
you asked me, right? -Yeah, yeah.
-We’re so polite. We’re Democrats. Okay. -I once gave the
Heimlich maneuver to Jerry Seinfeld
at a wine tasting. ♪♪ -What was he choking on?
-Yeah. -I think it was meat. A meat of some sort,
like a salami. -Hmm.
-Mm-hmm. -What city was this in?
-This was in The Hamptons. -Were you at a party? -No, it was a wine —
It was, like, a vineyard thing. I went with his wife
and my wife. -Which vineyard was it?
-Wolffer. -Who? -I think it was
called Wolffer or something. -Yeah, yeah. You think so?
-Wolffer…Vandelay. No? -No, it wasn’t
Vandelay Industries. It was Wolffer.
-Okay. -Wolffer Estates.
They had a wine-event thing. -Who else was at this — -His wife, Jessica,
and my wife, Nancy. We had to go for, like, a — It was, like,
a charity event thing. -What was the charity? -Jessica’s charity —
baby buggies or something. -You gave him the full
Heimlich maneuver? -I did, because I didn’t know
what to do. -Where did you learn
the Heimlich? -Posters. ♪♪ -I’m not sure.
This seems a little fishy to me. -They were both at —
I feel like this whole thing — it was an event,
but then they were standing — -And out of all people who could
have taken the initiative. -Yeah, it was you?
-Yeah. -That’s the hole in my story?
Then yes. I saved Jerry Seinfeld’s life.
-I don’t think so. I don’t believe this.
I’m saying no. -I’m with you. It’s a lie.
[ Drumroll ] -It is a lie.
-Oh, look at that. Alright. Well done. [ Cheers and applause ]
♪♪ -I had too many holes
in the story? I thought, “What if I did?” Jerry would kill me
if I touched him ever. Alright, here we go.
Mayor Pete, now it’s your turn. I will choose the envelope.
Is it 1 or 2? You were kind of quick
to grab number 2, so I’m going to go with
number 1. -Oh, alright. On the campaign trail,
I once ate an ice-cream sundae made entirely out of pork. ♪♪ -Is this — Alright, so,
when was this? How recently? -It was years ago,
campaigning in Indiana. County fair.
-County fair. They always make you do those
corn dogs and all that stuff. -How many bites did you take?
-I ate about half of it. It was actually pretty good.
-You ate half of it? -You ate of the —
-Oh, wait. That sounds fishy to begin with.
-Wait. What did look like? Describe what it looked like. -So, you know those, like,
Dairy Queen parfaits that they make? -Sure.
-You know, like, the… So, instead of the fudge
is barbecue sauce. And instead of the ice cream
is mashed potatoes. And then instead of
the peanuts, pork. -That sounds pretty good. What did you wash it down with? -Root beer.
-Huh. -And were there, like,
photographers around, like, making you take — -No, there’s no
photographic record. -You did this out of
the goodness of your heart. -Well, I was campaigning. You want to eat the local —
You want to impress the locals. -This was a local thing?
-Yeah, where were you again? You were at —
-Yeah. -LaPorte County, Indiana.
-LaPork? -LaPorte County.
-LaPorte County. -LaPork county. Yeah.
Who was with you? Who could have stopped this? -LaPorte County Lions Club,
-The Lions Club was there? Alright. -You washed it down with
a root beer? Is that your favorite soda?
-Oh, really? -Yeah.
-What’s your favorite soda? -Diet Coke.
-That’s sussy right there. -Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
yeah, yeah. So, why was the root beer there?
Root beer appears more — -Because it was nearby. -Alright.
But you weren’t choking. It was all good.
Mashed potatoes. ♪♪ -This is bizarre. I don’t know.
-I don’t think — I don’t know. -Well, when you’re campaigning,
you have to do all this stuff that you don’t — -He did come up with that
recipe pretty fast. If he had just — -Well, he had all day to prepare
this lie, but… -I don’t know. -No, I think you have to do
those things. I think — I don’t know. I think you ate it
and you enjoyed it. -Oh, he’s a politician!
I can’t tell! -They’re the best!
The politician and an actor. Oh, my gosh.
-I think he maybe ate it. -I think he did.
I think he’s telling the truth. -You ate it. -I think we —
-You ate it. -You’re telling the truth.
-Final answer? -Yes.
-Yes. You ate it. You ate it. -Yes, I did.
-Oh, my gosh! ♪♪
[ Cheers and applause ] -Was it good?
-It was okay. -It was pretty good.
-We did it. -We’re good. Scarlett Johansson and Mayor
Pete Buttigieg, everybody.
