Difficulty: 0

We're back with Chris Pratt.

And you used to be a door-to-door salesman?

Yes, I did.

What did you sell?

I sold promotional coupons for businesses

in the service industry, oil changes, trips

to a day spa, salon.

It's pretty cool.

How'd that go?

It went really well.

I was national salesman of the year.

I won a free trip to Jamaica.

Wow.

[APPLAUSE]

Congratulations.

Thank you.

Well, you're a good salesman obviously.

So we thought we would play a game.

It's called Pitch, Please.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

Pitch, Please.

All righty then.

OK.

So the first thing I want to know

is you're going to sell it like it's a product on QVC.

Oh, great.

So whatever-- this is how--

you don't know what it is.

But you want to sell this thing.

Of course, I do.

All right.

And I'm thrilled to be here talking about it.

Why should everyone have them?

First of all, you work hard.

You should get-- you should treat yourself, OK.

It's OK to spend a little bit of money

to get yourself something that's just really going

to make you complete.

Yeah, yeah, how often should they use them?

Honestly, I wouldn't use it any more than 20 times a day.

But you can use it on a daily.

Mm-hmm.

And they do make you feel good?

Oh, they make you feel great.

Yeah.

I've got three at home.

I use them all the time.

I use it with my friends, my family, I bring grandma over.

She's got one.

They're great stocking stuffers.

[LAUGHTER]

If you act fast, because we're only giving around 20 of these,

you can get all 20 at a discounted rate.

Wow.

You say you have three at home?

I have three of these at home.

Wow.

How much would someone pay for something like these?

Oh, I'll tell you how much they have gone for.

They've gone for upwards of $15.

$16,000.

If you act fast, you get yours for $19.95

plus shipping and handling.

OK.

[APPLAUSE]

You think on a cold day or a hot day, what is best?

There's no temperature of day that

isn't appropriate for this.

And if you act fast, you'll get one

for a cold day and an extra one for the hot days.

[LAUGHTER]

I heard you work out with them.

Why do you work out with them?

You don't get a body like this without having one of these.

[LAUGHTER]

[APPLAUSE]

Would you experience chafing at all?

Oh, no.

No, there's no chafing.

You know, there's a lot of compliments.

If you read the instruction manual that it comes with--

I see.

--and the accompanying lubricants, you will--

you'll have no chafing whatsoever.

OK.

Yeah.

Now when you-- let's just say the three you have at home.

Yes.

All right, when you're using them,

and you look in the mirror, show me

the face when you see yourself in the mirror.

[LAUGHTER] You, you, and you.

Yeah.

So you said your grandmother-- it's all ages really?

It's-- oh, yeah.

It's all ages, all shapes, and sizes.

OK, how old were you when you first got your first one?

Well, I was unfortunate.

I had to wait till I was 15.

[LAUGHTER]

You've never had one fall off?

Oh, no.

I have one on right now.

[LAUGHTER]

[APPLAUSE]

You have one right now?

So have you ever been pulled over

and has anybody ever like, I mean, you have one now.

But--

Right.

You know, have you ever been pulled over with them?

With them on?

Mhm.

Oh, yes.

I got pulled over by a police officer

because he had seen that I was using mine.

And I thought uh-oh, here we go.

Another ticket.

He said, sir, where'd you get that?

And I said, I'll tell you where.

I bought it on The Ellen Show.

And if you act fast, you can get up to your free 20 today.

Everybody's doing it.

Yeah.

Everybody is.

All right, would you like to see what you've been selling?

I don't know.

OK, I'm going to look.

You have three of them.

[LAUGHTER]

They don't have to just go here and here.

Oh, yeah.

Yeah, they can go anywhere.

They can go anywhere.

Yeah.

Anywhere you have a nipple.

Yep, anywhere.

The "Lego Movie Two," the second part is in theaters now.

We'll be right back.

Chris Pratt.
