Here’s something I never thought before I saw this video: If I had to tell my mom I had genital herpes, I think I’d want Chris Pratt to do it. Dude’s just got a real comforting voice, you know? Actually, let’s have Pratt deliver all of the world’s bad news. Fire? Earthquake? Volcanic eruption that threatens to cover the world in hot lava rendering humanity extinct? Have Pratt make the announcement.
This video’s got Pratt making that awkward phone call and much, much more. I don’t know how much cringe you can sit through at once without hitting the pause button, but the guys of Smosh have really worked hard to create something that’s both awkward and pretty hilarious. Pratt seems to figure out that the interview is fake about a minute in, but he soldiers through for another five, going toe-to-toe on the crazy, even going so far as to admit that he’d be busy all day if he could lactate chocolate milk. Really, I promise I’m not making this up.
