- “Jimmy Kimmel Live”/ ABC
Who knew knives weren’t living up to their potential? Will Ferrell and Ryan Gosling, that’s who.
The actors, who dubbed themselves “The Knife Guys,” interrupted host Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue during Monday night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to sell Donald Trump-branded knives.
“Everyone who’s anyone knows that the best steaks in the world are, of course, Trump Steaks!” Ferrell said, starting his pitch. “But you can’t cut something classy with something trashy.”
He then pulled out the “Trump knives,” which, by the way, were gold, and both actors put on caps with the logo “Make knives great again.”
“That’s a great knife,” Gosling said. “And I know, because I know all the great knives.”
“Yes it is, Ryan, and sharp, like the man himself,” Ferrell responded.
Both actors were very on edge, seemingly able to lose it at a moment’s notice. So it got a little scary when Kimmel asked them whether Trump knew they were selling the knives.
“No, Mr. Trump doesn’t know about this, because he’s super busy making America great again,” Ferrell said, then turning to Gosling. “My God, he doesn’t understand, though.”
“Just shut up, Jimmy!” Gosling responded in a high-pitched scream.
The two returned to their pitch and pulled out a golden Trump Steak. Ferrell struggled to cut a piece, then held it up to Gosling. The “Notebook” actor seemed reluctant to put the strangely golden piece of steak into his mouth, but he did it anyway. But something was not right.
“He’s choking,” Kimmel told Ferrell.
“Duh, Jimmy, he’s choking,” Ferrell said. “Thankfully, choking is a breeze with Trump knives. “OK, Ryan, I’m going to cut a small but very deep hole in your trachea. Don’t worry: I saw this on ‘Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.'”
To Gosling’s relief, Kimmel grabbed the actor and performed the Heimlich maneuver to dislodge the piece of meat.
But Kimmel didn’t get the response he wanted.
“Thanks for ruining our whole thing, jerk,” Gosling said.
