11:35 pm
dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight, amy poehler, stephen merchant and music from bastille. with cleto and the cletones. and now, how do you like this? here's jimmy kimmel! >> jimmy: thank you very much. that's very nice. clapping for me with your hands. and thank you for joining me for
11:36 pm
a night of music and laughter. and also, it's a big video game playing night tonight. last night at midnight, or this morning at midnight. i don't know how much it works, they released "grand theft auto 5" if you are wondering where your son is for the next month. don't worry he is just in his room killing a virtual prostitute. all over the world people are lined up outside the stores for this. this is at a game stop in london. who knew london had a game stop? no wonder people in other countries hate us. now this kid is celebrating. the fact that i think that his virginity has been put on hold another eight months. this version of grand theft auto is in fictionalized version of l.a. run around the city committing crimes, drugs, meeting prostitutes, charlie sheen the game. when i was growing up the only time someone got killed in a video game when a frog forgot to look both ways before crossing the street. but these kids today, you know. president obama has been
11:37 pm
focussed on syria, trying to get people to care enough about the fact that they use chemical weapons to do something about it. he did an interview on 60 minutes sunday. that's a mistake. if you want to get your message out to young people. you do it like this. >> mr. president, the administration has described evidence to the american people and the world, but it hasn't shown evidence. >> keep in mind that this is not a problem that i'm looking for. i'm not looking for an excuse to engage in military action. >> the people aren't with you. >> not yet. >> mr. president, thank you for having us in today. >> i've got some wings waiting for me upstairs. >> thank you. >> there you go. >> jimmy: in other world news -- britney spears was on "good morning america" this morning to announce that she signed a deal for two years of shows in las vegas.
11:38 pm
starting december 27th, britney will do 50 shows a year at planet hollywood resort and casino. it will feature classic, new songs, some signature moves like walking barefoot out of a bathroom holding a starbuck's latte. all the old favorites will be there. britney told sam champion her older son preston might john her on stage for the shows the. but her younger son, jaden will not. that makes sense, uncomfortable for your second child to be stan ding there when mommy sings oops i did it again. right? they made the announcement from a strange place, undisclosed location in the middle of the mojave, at 4:00 a.m. walter white called in the coordinates. despite she wasn't performing, more than 1,000 people showed up -- 1,000 fans, drove off to the middle of the desert middle of the night to see britney spears announce something they could read on their cell phones three second later. almost seems like a waste of time. britney flew in by helicopter. she couldn't believe how many people showed up. she told the crowd "i don't even know what to say. i am speechless.
11:39 pm
this is shocking. you are all such losers. go home, you disgust me." or something like that. meanwhile, miley cyrus is a single woman. she and fiance liam hemsworth called their engagement off. i'm not surprised -- boy meets girl. girl gets naked. straddles a piece of construction equipment. boy loses girl. they're too young to settle down. miley is 20 years old. when you are 20, you need to be out there and jump on as many wrecking balls as you can. you have to grab life by the sledgehammer and weirdly lick it. and this is funny. people suspected there was trouble in the relationship when miley unfollowed liam on twitter. unfollowing on twitter its the modern equivalent of throwing the engagement ring at his head. these are people. breakups are difficult. that's why this morning i was
11:40 pm
glad to see that our nation's news media covered this story with sensitivity. >> miley cyrus, now we want to confirm, it didn't work out. >> it is over. miley and liam. >> twerking. >> it didn't twerk out. >> it did not twerk out. >> it was not twerking out. >> no longer twerking on her relationship. >> maybe her twerking isn't working. >> i guess her twerking wasn't working. >> miley cyrus, couldn't make up her relationship, make it work or twerk. as she likes to refer to it. >> looks like miley and liam won't be able to twerk things out. >> apparently the words rhyme with each other. nailed it again. ha-ha. you know there is an embarrassing trend among college
11:41 pm
students i do not quite understand. a study published in "the wall street journal" that says 8% of recent college graduates brought their parents to the interview. 3% had their parents sitting in the interview. can you imagine that? i would never bring my parents. dates, yes, always. but job interview? no. the only time it is acceptable to bring your parents to a job interview if you are auditioning for "american idol" and they wait outside the door. even then, honestly it is not that okay. i cannot imagine what that would be like to have parents sitting there, while you are being interviewed for a job. so to help me with that, to conserve my imagination, my staff came up with something to illustrate this phenomenon, called "i wonder what that would look like." >> so, tell me a little bit about yourself.
11:42 pm
>> he is almost done playing mine craft. >> we gave him 30 minutes to finish up the level. >> cooper has a shrimp allergy. >> he meditates an hour. >> the windows let in a lot of light. is the glass uv protected. he has a skin condition. >> please, shut up. >> that's our cooper, so independent. >> we are so proud of you. >> okay, you can leave now. >> oh. >> great. wonderful. thank you so much. >> let's go, son. >> all right. >> okay. >> on three. >> one, two, three. >> here we go. >> don't pull my legs so hard. >> sorry, coop. >> thank you for your time. bye-bye now. >> good job, sweetie. >> jimmy: they forgot the epi-pen. that is what -- in lieu of your imagination, we provided that. this one doesn't make much sense
11:43 pm
either. a study out of stanford suggests that using social media is making us smarter. the study examined hundreds of essays written by college freshmen between 1917 and 2006. by 2006, the papers were longer, better researched, more complex than 1917. right, because kids in 2006, cut and pasted them from wikipedia. did people have pencils. the fact of the matter is that we are not getting smarter. our phones are getting smarter. i don't know my home phone number. my cell phone has the the information. phones in the old days were very, very dumb. it's not us. it's them. oh, by the way, sunday night, do not forget the emmy award. i believe this year they're on cbs. the emmy award are a chance to honor the actors everyone loves and the writers, directors, producers no one cares about. ♪ ♪ who let the dogs out ♪ who let the dogs out ♪ >> jimmy: thought i turned this

back because obviously i am so tall. and the car ahead of me stopped, in the middle of the street. i hit the back of him. the airbag want off. but it didn't reach me. it was -- it just like went and -- it was like a some one had come into the room and, went, no, no, no. and -- but i was like. volvos are supposed to be the safest car in the word. some one in volvo should get a giant crash test dummy and stick him in there. >> jimmy: walked out of it fine? everything was okay. when people see the show they will understand what i am talking about. because you do, you are not smooth, i think is probably. >> i am not a smooth operator. i try so hard. i want to be james bond. i want to be smooth and cool. a lot of the show is, a lot of hopefully quite smart humor. lot of physical stuff. i like doing physical humor. that's partly it occurs to me naturally in real life.
12:24 am
it's always been the case. i remember when i was at college. i bought a shirt to us impress this girl. first time i realize i'd am fundamentally cool. i am cheap. i don't like spending money on clothes. i'm on tv, i should be getting them free i'm on tv. i bought a shirt, maroony, silk, it wasn't actually, no sibling, never seen silk. like 90%, polyester, 10% straw or something. it was really cheap. i wore this shirt to this party. and i was, i was talking to this girl. i thought it was going great. she was laughing. seemed engaged. at one point she said to me, steve, you're on fire. and i went, thanks very much. and she went, no, you are actually on fire. i look around there was a candle on the mantle piece, my sleeve had gone up. just flaming. rapidly. it was like. i am not at my sexiest when i am
12:25 am
jumping on the floor screaming like a girl. please put me out. >> jimmy: very few people are. >> yeah. and i -- >> jimmy: that ruined the mood? >> ruined the mood a little. forget the girl. i was obsessed with the shirt. i spent money on this shirt. and it was ruined. i kept saying to people. could i get a seam, could i get my mom to add a seam. she did. my mom added a seam to it. i continued to wear it on ill-fated dates. >> jimmy: here in l.a., has l.a. welcomed you warmly? are you -- more comfortable here? >> well, i feel like, you know, i know people and i feel like sort of plugged in. it continues. the same thing happens. you will not believe the story. when i tell you, you will say i made this up for tv. i swear this happens three weeks ago. i was invited, wasn't invited. i want to a party with some friends. i never get invited to parties. and it was a party at the home of the comedian sarah silverman.
12:26 am
i don't know if you know her? >> jimmy: i do know her. i don't think i was invited. >> i didn't see you there. so i was there. one of nigh anything -- one of my anxieties, i don't know if you know, anxieties is making a fool of myself in front of comedians, comedians they never let you forget i you embarrass yourself in front of a comedian, every time they will destroy you and bring that back up. >> jimmy: like the volvo thing. >> i am at this party. great party. 200 people. in her apartment block. and really nice. lots of cool people. interesting women. fascinating people. i met, saw, garry shandling, and it was great. and then some one said do you want some chocolate? sure. i'm english, we love chocolate. why not? and in england if some one gives you've chocolate it is just chocolate, jimmy.
12:27 am
in california, in california, it's not just chocolate. and there was something in there. that i have not to this point been able to identify. >> jimmy: you had no idea. >> man, alive. like i just -- it was just, it was some kind of recreational thing that's popular in the california state. and it was in this, and i ate it. and i'm a big unit. i can handle. >> jimmy: always said that about second. and i was fine, for, about 30 second. and then i just, i went into a hole of just darkness and despair. like the world just closed in around me. i couldn't, people were talking to me. i was making plans with people i didn't want to make plans with. i'm just high and for a while i just had to lie down at the party. lie down in the middle. people partying around me. giant 6'7", domesticated creature, just lying. and then, and then, i went to the bathroom for a while. and just stared at myself in the
12:28 am
mirror. because that's -- seemed sensible. it made no difference. i was there for hours. then i walk back out into the party. i thought i must get some air. i walked toward outside area. but in my weird fuzzy state, the route i took took me straight through an eight-foot plate glass window. i walked straight through the glass. it shattered in its entirety. every shard of glass, fell, the noise, the party just stopped. everyone turned. 200 people just staring. i walked through it. now i was outside. outside. just staring back. glass everywhere. my first thought was how much is this going to cost? second thought i swear my second thought was at least i have a story for jimmy kimmel. and -- >> jimmy: thank you. >> that was, suddenly i saw all these comedians, they turn, looking like piranha fish. okay.
12:29 am
seems to be okay. minor graze on the head. cut on the head. fine. reached for the phones. phones out, photos, e-mailing friend. >> wish i received one of those. >> you know. i took the liberty. someone took a picture for me afterward. i brought the picture. give it to you to take a look. two things to point out on the photograph. firstly, look at the color of the glass. it was brown glass. dark. wasn't even transparent glass. it was basically, the closest you could be to being a wall without being a wall. but secondly, this sums up hollywood for you. 200 people there from hollywood right. they had to get in a hispanic cleaning lady at 2:00 a.m., not one of them could get a broom. >> jimmy: you know what, i think
12:30 am
your mom could fix this. >> bet she could. >> jimmy: well, there you go. it really happened. or you did something ridiculous to prove a story. it's great to see you. thank you so much. watch his show. september 29th, on hbo. stephen merchant, everybody! we will be right back with bastille!
