Last night Chris Pratt was on The Graham Norton Show and told a story about getting his headshots taken when he was 20 that sounds like the prelude to a story that ends with “and then that poor young man was never seen again.”
It really does just seem like Chris Pratt was a terribly credulous young man, though, as this story about his first job with a multi-level marketing company that sold coupons will demonstrate. Apparently the way through an obvious scam is to just be 100% trusting and also incredibly charismatic.
John Bishop had also told his story of selling vacuum cleaners and got a bit of teasing about how the Americans probably couldn’t understand his accent. At which point Mr.Pratt demonstrated that while he might not be the best at spotting obvious red flags, he is great at picking up regional accents. Just not useful ones.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Since I was off celebrating Memorial Day last week I didn’t have the chance to share the wonderful clips from last Friday! So here they are. First up is The Rock walking Graham through the entire process of enquiring the audience as to whether or not they can smell what the Rock is cooking. (The answer, by the way, is apparently bad movies and so much cod.)
This show also featured George Clooney detailing all the pranks he’s played on Brad Pitt and others over the years, ending with his suspicion that he will soon be arrested for this because he’s probably “crossed a line.”
And finally, speaking of potentially illegal antics, here’s Snoop Dogg talking about the time he hotboxed his studio so completely that Pharrell got a contact high powerful enough to disrupt his master music producing skills.
