Shot Caller with John Legend
-Before you go, I thought we
could play a game that combines two of my
favorite things — going through people’s phones
and making people take shots. That’s right — it’s time for
“Shot Caller.” -Oh, man.
♪♪ -Here’s how this works. We’ll each take turns spinning
this Shot Caller wheel, which will land on
a random letter and number. That letter and number will
tell you which contact in your phone will unknowingly be playing along
with you today… -Oh, wow. -…because after
you’ve spun the wheel, you’ll have to decide whether to
send them a confusing text that my writers have crafted
or take a shot. So, I got some Belvedere
for you. I got some berry Ciroc for moi.
right there. Here are the text messages.
-And I’m not driving after this. -Me neither.
-Alright. -They actually don’t let me
leave the studio. Okay, I’ll go first.
How about that? -Okay.
-Okay, sound good? Alright. Let me spin first. All right, we got — That’s H-4.
-H-4. H-4. Not seeing H’s. The last name is Handler. -Handler?
-And it is Chelsea. -Chelsea!
-Chelsea Handler! [ Cheers and applause ] Okay, let’s see what
the text message is, and I’ll decide if I’m gonna
send it to Chelsea or take a shot. -We love Chelsea.
-We love Chelsea. -And she loves
a good vodka shot. She wrote a whole book about it. -If anything, I don’t take the
shot, she might be disappointed. The text is, “I just got back
from the doctor, and you might want to go
get tested.” -Send it.
-You think I should send it? -Send it! Send it! Send it!
Send it! -Look at this peer pressure.
I’m down. I’m down. Okay, “I just got
back from the doctor, and you might
want to go get tested.” -Send it!
-Aah! There’s the receipt,
so I did it. I sent it. Alright, I sent the text.
We did the damn thing. -Is it my turn?
-Yes, it is your turn. Go ahead and spin the wheel,
both of them. Yes! Whoo! -Big money, big money.
-Okay. -I don’t know if I have any
Z’s in my phone. Let me check. I’m curious.
Okay, I have a “Z.” -You do? Who is it?
-His name is Aaron Zigman. He’s a songwriter. I wrote a song with him
for a film. -Aaron is either — You’re
either going to take a shot or you’re gonna send the
following text. -Okay. -“Can you pick me up?
It happened again.” -Okay. I’ll send that.
-You’ll send that? Send it.
But we want to see the receipt. [ All chanting “Send!” ] -Done.
-Receipts, y’all. Receipts. Whoo! Sent. It is sent. -Oh, no. I got an error message. “Your message
could not be delivered to this non-wireless number.” -Oh, wait. Hold on, hold on.
You know what that means. -I got to take a shot.
-You got to take a shot. But I’ll tell you what.
I’ll tell you what. Since you’re a good sport,
I’ll do one with you. Cheers, John Legend.
-Cheers. [ Cheers and applause ] Alright.
-Alright, here we go. -Well, Aaron Zigman,
if you’re out there, pick me up, bro. -Also, Aaron, thank you for
getting me through today. I appreciate that. Alright, time for
the lightning round. We’re gonna switch things up
a little bit. This time, the stakes are a
little bit higher. You’re going to randomly scroll
through your phone contacts, and when I say “stop,” whoever you land on,
you have to video-call them… -Okay.
-…with the message. But — Do you want to go first
or should I go first? I want to go first,
just to set the precedent, okay? I’m gonna close my eyes,
scroll through my contacts. You tell me when to stop.
You ready? -Okay.
-Wait. Chelsea replied. -What’d she say? What’d she say?
-[ Laughs ] -I said, “I just got back
from the doctor, and you might want to go
get tested.” And she said,
“I already have it.” -Yes!
[ Cheers and applause ] -That’s what’s up, Chelsea.
I love you. -That’s the benefit of texting
another comedian, because they know how to land
a joke, yes. -Okay, I’m going to go
through my phone. You tell me when to stop, okay?
-It is a famous DJ. -Oh! -Another one?
-Another one! -Oh! -It’s DJ Khaled.
Wait, wait, wait. -Wait, wait, wait. We have a Grammy-nominated
song together with Nipsey Hussle. -Yes. -And let’s FaceTime him and tell
him I voted for us today. -But here’s the thing.
Here’s the thing. Let’s see what I would have to
say to him first. because it’s either I take a
shot or I say this to DJ Khaled. -Okay, it is, “I think I just saw Ellen hit
someone with her car. She kept driving.” -That would be wild.
No, we’re FaceTiming. We’re FaceTiming.
-Should we FaceTime? Oh, my God! Okay, hold on.
Oh, my God. Alright, let me — Alright. “Get a TV show,” they said.
“It would be fun.” Okay, hide yourself first,
and I’ll just — -Alright.
-Alright. Hold on. Let me just — -Yeah?
-Hey, Khaled, Khaled. -Khaled. It’s DJ Khaled! -Khaled, this is crazy.
This is crazy. I have to call you.
-What’s up, John? -What’s up, John?
-What’s up, Khaled? -We just saw Ellen
hit someone with her car, and, yo, she kept driving. -Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You know… -You seen her do it, too?
-Uh… -And, also, John has
something to tell you. -I just voted for us for the
Grammys, Khaled. -I just voted for you, too.
-That’s what’s up. Give it up for DJ Khaled,
everybody! -John, I love you.
-I love you, brother. Oh, man!
-That was sweet. That was sweet. Alright. We have another round. You got to scroll through
your phone. -Okay.
-Alright. -So, I’m just gonna scroll.
-Yep. I’m gonna tell you when to stop. You can stop. -Oprah Winfrey.
[ Cheers and applause ] -What?!
-I am not. -What?!
-I am not. -What?! -I am not.
-What?! Yo… [ Audience chanting “Oprah!” ] Even John Legend knows
his limits, y’all. -I’m not bothering
Oprah Winfrey today. -I’ll tell you what —
cheers to that. Cheers, John Legend.
[ Cheers and applause ] Aah!
-Ow! -Whoo! That’s all the time
we have for “Shot Caller.” My thank-you to John Legend
for being here.
