Jon: FIRST OF ALL, YOU LOOK

LIKE [BLEEP].

SECOND OF ALL, HOW DOES DAVID

BRENT END UP IN AMUSE I CAN

VIDEO?

>> WELL, I KEPT GETTING PEOPLE

ON TWITTER OR THINGS.

WHAT'S HE DOING NOW?

I DON'T WANT TO MAKE STUFF UP.

IT'S A FICTIONAL CHARACTER SO I

THOUGHT I WOULD BRING HIM BACK

TO THAT.

IT'S JUST A LITTLE PIECE

>> Jon: WHAT IS HE DOING NOW?

HE'S RESTING, AS HE SAID.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO GIVE UP THAT

CASH COW.

AND HIS OTHER PASSIONS.

HE THINKS HE'S A LOCAL RAPPER.

BUT HE WORMED HIS WAY INTO IT.

HE CAN'T BELIEVE HIS LUCK.

>> Jon: TERRIFIC.

OF COURSE HE GETS EVERYTHING

WRONG.

THIS IS HIS IDEA.

THIS SONG IS HIS IDEA OF, YOU

KNOW, CHANGING THE WORLD

>> Jon: CAN I TELL YOU...

HE GETS IT ALL WRONG OF

COURSE.

>> Jon: NOW YOU STARTED A

WHOLE... THIS IS LIKE A CHANNEL

YOU STARTED?

>> YES

Jon: HOW DOES THAT EVEN WORK?

IT'S LIKE A, YOU KNOW, LIKE

A...

>> Jon: DO YOU THINK YOU'RE

OPRAH?

>> YES

Jon: YOU CAN'T JUST START A

CHANNEL.

>> THIS IS THE FUTURE.

THIS IS THE FUTURE

>> Jon: WHAT IS THE FUTURE?

UST PEOPLE BROADCASTING ON

YOU-TUBE.

IT'S MASSIVE.

YOU-TUBE IS THE BIGGEST

FORECASTER IN THE WORLD.

... BROADCASTER IN THE WORLD

>> Jon: THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE

LIKE SIX-YEAR-OLDS COMING OUT OF

PAIN MEDICATION.

THERE'S ALREADY TELEVISION.

WHY NOT WRITE SOMETHING AND PUT

IT ON TELEVISION?

YOU CAN'T DEFEAT THEM ON

YOU-TUBE.

>> TELEVISION IS DEAD.

Jon: TELEVISION IS NOT DEAD.

NO ONE IS WATCHING THIS.

Jon: YOU'RE GOING TO WORK

YOUR ASS OFF FOR TWO MONTHS ON A

BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT MUSIC VIDEO

AND A [BLEEP] LIKE GETTING

SPRAYED BY A COKE IS GOING TO

BLOW BY YOU AND YOU'RE NOT GOING

TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.

THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS.

>> I'M GOING TO SIGN THAT CAT

UP.

SNAIRLS ON YOUR CHANNEL?

>> AND TAKE 90% OF ITS EARNINGS.

IT'S GOING TO BE HAPPY.

WHAT DO I GET?

YOU GET A LITTLE PIECE OF FISH.

THAT'S ALL.

>> Jon: I AM A TRAINED MIME.

AND THIS...

>> NO, IT WAS SORT OF LIKE THIS.

Jon: WE'RE DOING THE

VAUDEVILLIAN TAKE OF FEEDING A

CAT.

TO THE MOON.

>> EXACTLY.

Jon: IT'S A CAT.

IS THIS BEING BROADCAST NOW?

BECAUSE THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF

[BLEEP] TELEVISION.

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

THIS WOULDN'T GO ON YOU-TUBE.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Jon: THAT IS TRUE.

WE COULD DO THIS WHOLE SHOW

IN A TWEET.

>> Jon: YOU'RE AN OLD MAN.

YOU'RE LIKE ME.

>> I KNOW.

Jon: WHY?

BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY

IDIOTS OUT THERE TO ENJOY.

USUALLY I HAVE TO GO INTO

PRISONS OR RUBBISH PITS TO MEET

PEOPLE.

NOW I CAN DO IT FROM THE COMFORT

OF MY MANSION.

IT'S AMAZING.

THEY SAY SUCH STUPID THINGS.

MY FAVORITE ONE IS, HEY,

EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO THEIR

OWN BELIEFS SO JUST SHUT UP

ABOUT YOUR RACISM.

THAT'S MY FAVORITE.

THAT'S MY FAVORITE.

I LOVE IT

>> Jon: AND YOU RESPOND TO THEM.

YES, OF COURSE.

I WANT TO SHARE STUPIDITY WITH

THE WORLD.

THAT'S MY JOB

>> Jon: THAT'S WHAT I DO.

THAT'S MY POINT.

WHY DO IT ON... BUT I THOUGHT

THE WHOLE POINT OF CELEBRITY OF

SUCCESS WAS TO WALL YOURSELF OFF

FROM THAT CONTACT?

>> IT'S TOO TEMPTING.

IT'S JUST WAY TOO TEMPTING WHEN

PEOPLE SAY STUPID THINGS.

>> Jon: WHEN DO YOU SLEEP?

THESE ARE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.

IF YOU ENGAGE ONE, HOW DO YOU

STOP?

>> YOU SEE, I HAVE TO THINK

ABOUT A TWEET.

THAT WILL DO ON TWITTER.

THAT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR TWITTER.

TODAY ON THE WAY HERE IN THE CAR

I DID ABOUT THREE TWEETS.

I SAID IF NO ONE RETWEETS THIS I

WILL GIVE $10,000 TO CHARITY.

HUNDREDS OF RETWEETS.

I SAID YOU'RE NOT LISTENING,

OKAY?

IF NOT ONE PERSON RETWEETS THIS

I WILL GIVE $15,000 TO CHARITY,

RIGHT?

500 RETWEETS.

AND THEN OTHER PEOPLE ARE GOING,

YOUR FOLLOWERS ARE ALL IDIOTS.

SO I'M RETWEETING THAT.

IT'S LIKE AMAZING.

>> Jon: IT'S JUST ANGERING

PEOPLE.

>> I'M LIKE THE DEVIL.

NO ONE REALLY GETS HURT.

IT'S LIKE I'M LOOKING DOWN ON

ANTS.

IT IS FUN.

I KNOW THEY'RE HUMAN BEINGS AND

I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT.

BUT IT'S FUN

>> Jon: YOU DON'T REALIZE ABOUT

ANTS.

THEY HAVE 100 TIMES THEIR BODY

WEIGHT IN STRENGTH.

THEY WILL DRAG YOU INTO A HOLE

AND NO ONE WILL SEE YOU AGAIN.

>> I HEARD THAT ON CNN SO THAT'S

A FACT.

>> Jon: YOU DID IT.

YOU DID IT, BOY.

CHECK OUT HIS NEW YOU-TUBE

CHANNEL.

>> I'M LIKE OPRAH.

Jon: DEREK ON NETFLIX THIS

SUMMER.

RICKY GERVAIS, EVERYBODY.
