  • [SIRENS]

  • I mean, honestly, this is like what I've come to expect.

  • So I could make like a dumb joke, but--

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • Hey!

  • DESUS: What's up?

  • Hi.

  • DESUS: What's going on, homie?

  • ANNA KENDRICK: Good to see you guys.

  • Hey!

  • How is it going?

  • Aw! [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • - Ready for this interview? - I know.

  • It's going to be great.

  • You can't get away from me. [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • I miss you guys. [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • Let's do it.

  • [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • You know a show on late night?

  • You know what it is, nothing but illustrious guests.

  • Friend of the show-- DESUS: Friend of the show--

  • MERO: You know what I'm saying?

  • DESUS: --our famous celebrity friend, who we

  • just be casually hanging with. - Yeah.

  • This doesn't even feel like work.

  • We're just hanging with our home girl, Anna Kendrick.

  • [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • - Oh, are there cameras? - Oh my god!

  • Oh my god, I didn't even realize!

  • Oh my god, so embarrassing! [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • Oh my god, I'm sorry.

  • Oh, forgot to tell you about that.

  • How you been?

  • I've been amazing.

  • I miss you guys.

  • Oh, we miss you too.

  • ANNA KENDRICK: We're like for real friends, I love it.

  • Yes, we're real friends.

  • We have each other's phone numbers.

  • ANNA KENDRICK: I know. - We go out to eat.

  • - Yeah. - I know.

  • It's wild.

  • Heard you have a story about the last time

  • we went out to eat. Do you have a complaint--

  • I'm sorry, I didn't know we were going to get into it.

  • DESUS: Well, let's start. Let's begin at the beginning.

  • Well, first of all, I would like to say that Mero's

  • an innocent party here--

  • Thank you.

  • ANNA KENDRICK: --and was not involved.

  • I was responsibly watching my children at home.

  • But you guys invited me to have dinner with AOC,

  • which was very lovely.

  • DESUS: Lovely.

  • And I'm sure that Mero was very sad that he wasn't there.

  • Of course.

  • But in the end, he comes out the hero.

  • Because what happened was--

  • [GIGGLING]

  • At the end of the night, at these big fancy dinners,

  • when it's like, all these celebrities, it's

  • John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Seth Rogen Tracy Ellis

  • Ross, Don Cheadle, Pharrell Will-- like,

  • everybody's at this table.

  • And I understand the tendency to feel like somebody

  • is getting this, right?

  • Like, the label's picking up the check,

  • or the studio's picking up the check, I guess.

  • But no, you fucking grabbed me, and you're like, yo, nobody's

  • paying for this dinner.

  • You have to help me pay for this dinner.

  • [LAUGHTER] - That's true.

  • That is true.

  • And I grabbed Jay Ellis.

  • And I was like, well-- because Pharrell just--

  • he had left. DESUS: He was out.

  • He left. DESUS: He left.

  • And so-- MERO: Power move.

  • --I was like, well, but all these people are still here.

  • And like, Seth Rogen is coming up, and being like,

  • hey, thanks for inviting me.

  • I was like, (WHISPERING) get his credit card!

  • - That's what we're saying! - (WHISPERING) Ask him first!

  • Credit card!

  • And you were like, no.

  • And you were like, well, is because you're one of us now.

  • And I was like, this is emotional bribery.

  • DESUS: It is.

  • It's a little gaslighting, it's a little, you know?

  • [LAUGHTER] There's a little manipulation.

  • So then we just had to split this very expensive check.

  • Dinner, yes.

  • Whoo!

  • And I did say if this is about reparations, fine.

  • And you and Jay Ellis laughed, which

  • made me feel very relieved.

  • Because as I was saying it, I was like--

  • DESUS: Can you get away with this joke?

  • [SQUEALING] [LAUGHTER]

  • See, but you paid--

  • After paying that bill, you can make jokes like that.

  • ANNA KENDRICK: OK, great.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Well, I mean, other than hanging out with us,

  • what do you do for fun?

  • Now I know you go to strip clubs.

  • You play dice in the Bronx.

  • ANNA KENDRICK: Yeah.

  • DESUS: How else has your life changed

  • from your Bronx experience?

  • A lot more Timms, more Yankee Field, lot of ah, ah,

  • ahs when you speak?

  • No! I mean--

  • MERO: Some yerrs?

  • And I almost said this to you at the time,

  • because you guys kept being like, oh, when

  • they start rolling again, like say this piece of slang

  • or whatever.

  • And I was like, I can't say that to you

  • on TV, because then white women will come up to you forever

  • and be like-- am I right?

  • Like--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I can say that now.

  • Yerr! [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • - Yerr! - It's true.

  • That is true.

  • Looks good, my guy.

  • ANNA KENDRICK: Yeah.

  • Even though it was for comedy purposes, I was like,

  • I don't think that I should say that.

  • There's something very important.

  • It set Twitter aflame.

  • What?

  • We sent you a pair of Jordans, and you took a photo of them.

  • - Oh yes! - That's right.

  • This was wild.

  • You performed--

  • This was wild.

  • --the cardinal sin of Jordans.

  • Yeah, so when we hung out in the Bronx,

  • you guys gave me like--

  • and I was very clear in my post to say like, it's

  • like a starter kit Jordan, because they're not like,

  • super impressive wild Jordans.

  • Probably not the kind of thing that you guys

  • would have necessarily picked out for me,

  • but you know I'm just starting, so you

  • got me just like a basic entry level Jordan.

  • Neutral color that you can mix with a lot of--

  • ANNA KENDRICK: And I was like, I love these, I appreciate you.

  • And I put them on and I took a picture in them, you know,

  • posed in them and I was like, thanks, Desus and Mero,

  • this is awesome.

  • And all of the comments were about-- it was just--

  • I didn't know sneaker culture! So--

  • Exactly!

  • I didn't know I was walking into the shitstorm

  • that I was walking into.

  • Every comment was you're like, (YELLING) The crease!

  • MERO: (YELLING) You're creasing them!

  • ANNA KENDRICK: (YELLING) Oh, what are you doing?

  • (YELLING) Yo, she's fucking creasing them!

  • - (YELLING) Oh no! - She doesn't get it.

  • (YELLING) What are you doing?

  • She doesn't get it.

  • Whose mans is this?

  • As though they're like a one of a kind--

  • The zoom-in on the (LAUGHING) crease and shit.

  • Yes!

  • Would you have survived a Bronx childhood?

  • What would Bronx Anna Kendrick be, you think?

  • Did you have--

  • Like how old?

  • Let's see.

  • MERO: I'd say born and raised.

  • DESUS: Born and raised. ANNA KENDRICK: Born and raised?
