Zach Galifianakis was on Pete Holmes’ podcast You Made It Weird last week. And he talked about that time he went to a Knicks game super high. You can hear it here (26:50 mark), but I’ve transcribed it because I love you.
I was at a Knicks game. This is an embarrassing story for a couple reasons. But I went with an actor, and he had courtside seats. And I don’t know. I had eaten some pot chocolate to relax myself. And I’m sitting there courtside, nice tickets. I don’t really do that stuff, but uh…I was thinking to myself, about the third quarter, This pot chocolate is kinda kicking in. I can feel it. Two seconds later, this guy comes up to me that worked for Madison Square Garden, and he’s like, “Do you mind if we put your face on the Jumbotron?” I’m like, WHA?! WHAT?! He’s like, “Do you mind if we…” I’m like, “Uhhhhhhhhhhh.” I didn’t want it up there. I went, “Sure!” I don’t know. I’m not confrontational that way. And I was like, “OK.” And I look up—now keep in mind the chocolate’s [kicking in] and there’s a delay on the Jumbotron thing—I’m looking up. I’m giggling at myself giggling at myself. I look up: [giggle]. Look down: [giggle]. So there’s those bizarre moments where you’re just like this is a dumb existence.
And thanks to that pot chocolate-altered Zach, we have what may be the best courtside photo of all time.
Thanks, Zach. We needed this.
