we've got a great show for you tonight. he's the co-anchor of "weekend update." my good friend colin jost will be here. he was just nominated for a critics' choice award, deservedly so, for playing guillermo in "what we do in the shadows," harvey guillen will be joining us but before we get to all that, you guys, i'm in my 40s, married with two kids, but nothing, and i mean nothing makes me feel older than when i realize i no longer understand the slang terms the teenagers are using. and these days, well, it seems almost impossible to keep up because these slang terms are evolving so fast so, we decided to both help me and to help you, we'd give you a little primer on new teen slang terms in a segment we call "seth explains teen slang. ♪ >> seth: our first new teen slang term is "ted cruise. here's the definition. "it's a vacation that only lasts one day. here it is in a sentence "jenny found a sweet deal on tickets to cabo, but it was only good if you left on a wednesday and flew back thursday morning
12:43 am
so that trip was a total ted cruise." our next new teen slang term is "potbelly. here's the definition. "it's someone whose diet consists mostly of edibles." and here it is in a sentence "kyle's the best kid to trade lunches with i gave him my pb&j and he gave me some th&c #potbelly. next up, we have "perseverance rover. you guys, here's the definition. "the kid who's been turned down for prom by everyone, so they travel to a whole other school to ask everyone there. pretty eggy definition [ laughter ] here it is in a sentence "tough luck for lance getting turned down by every girl here, but i heard he took an uber across state lines to st. luke's all-girls school to search for signs of interest in his life. #perseverancerover." up next, we have "gamestop." let's see the definition "it's someone whose temporary social stock far exceeds their actual worth." for example, "when people find out that the swimming pool-sized hole in aiden's backyard is
12:44 am
actually for a new septic tank, that gamestop is gonna see his stock plummet. moving on, we have "mrs. doubtfiring. here's the definition. "when you dress up as an old lady to try and get the vaccine. let's see it in a sentence "principal greene got caught mrs. doubtfiring his vaccine appointment, which is weird, because he's 70 years old, and as far as i know, there's no priority for women or people with bad scottish accents. moving on, we have "spliffnotes." this is "when you did the required reading while high. for example, "we're reading 'animal farm' in mr. ogburn's class, but braden must be using the spliffnotes, because he leaned over and very seriously asked, 'are all the animals talking to you, too?'" next up is "mdmma. this is a variation of ecstasy that makes you violent for example, "jeremy and i bought what we thought was molly last night, but this morning i woke up with a black eye, a cracked rib and cauliflower ear.
12:45 am
#mdmma." next up, it's "anti-snaxxer. this is the kid who believes conspiracy theories about junk food here it is in a sentence "i ripped open my bag of cool ranch doritos and that anti-snaxxer josh said, 'bill gates developed those chips so frito-lay could track my location.' next up, it's "gabafool" kids are using this a lot today. it's someone who doesn't know basic facts about "the sopranos." and here it is in a sentence "megan tried to act like she was a huge 'sopranos' fan, but then went on to praise the show's distinct miami setting total gabafool." moving on, if you followed the news, you've almost certainly heard of the disturbing qanon conspiracy theorists well, this slang term is related, and it's about a new troubling trend amongst teens. hughanon this is a group that believes radical conspiracies about hugh grant. let's see it in a sentence "lydia seemed normal, but turn
12:46 am
on 'about a boy,' and she starts ranting about how hugh grant is a satan worshiper who killed and ate paddington girl gone full hughanon. this next one is really, i mean, it's really blowing up with the teens. and i don't just say that. it's "milff" with two fs it's an acronym that refers to mom i'd like to "freaky friday." here it is in a sentence "bryce's mom gets to work in a dentist's office, drive a kia sportage and stay up until 11:00? sign me up to swap bodies with that milff!" finally, our last new teen slang term is "fidgerton." "this is when you have to hide that you're aroused in a class after watching a 'bridgerton' sex scene on your phone. here it is in a sentence "tried to sneak in some netflix during chemistry and had to fidgerton a textbook over my pants because that scene with the duke of hastings and daphne turned out to be a little too much chemistry for me! you guys, this has been, and has always been, and will continue

12:52 am
of people have said you're a 16-year-old drummer who's taken the world by storm >> yeah. i was like, i mean, i'll take it i'll take it i know i read as late teens, but -- [ light laughter ] >> seth: you guys are doing your fifth show in a row. i believe your last run was six shows in a row that is a very punishing schedule obviously, a lot of it is necessitated by the times we're living through, but are you -- you must be exhausted. >> yeah, mentally, i think a lot of us are hitting a breaking point. but it's very hard -- it's really hard to complain when you work at a comedy show. be like, "we worked five weeks in a row!" [ laughter ] you understand, but to any sort of, you know, normal functioning human, they're like, "uh huh." you know you can't, like, complain. like my parents, i'm like, yeah, "mom, you can't believe i'm working five weeks in a row. and she's like, "yeah, i worked just in, like, hospitals, for
12:53 am
like six years straight without a week off so, yeah, no, that must be tough. you're like, yeah, okay, that's harder >> seth: that does make sense, because i've been trying to get people to bang pots and pans at end of each "snl" just to, like, reward you guys. >> and it hasn't taken off in the same way >> seth: no. nobody wants to engage that. but i will say - >> i think if you were thinking of it as booing and they're booing along, you might get some people to join [ laughter ] certain weeks, you might get some people to join in, but no, not -- >> seth: some people said they would like to come out on their balconies and just scream how it was better in the '70s [ laughter ] >> yeah, that's right. are terriblehaain, this is the based on safety -- but you know, whether the "snl" was good or bad, the nicest part of the way the week was structured is at the end of the show, you went out with everybody and it could either lift your
12:54 am
mood, or if your mood was great, it would elevate it. so, how weird is it when the shows are over that everybody just kind of dissipates? >> it's very strange i mean, the first part is, there's no energy backstage. so when you get off, if you felt like things went great or you felt they went horribly, either way, there's nothing you walk into, like, a wall of silence. normally, you'd see, you know, whatever adam levine is there, he's like, "hey, what's up, man good job." or someone's -- you know, there's a llama and abraham lincoln from the costume before and abraham lincoln's got a couple notes for you, "maybe hold your head this way," things like that. you're getting energy. and this is -- and you have no -- you have nothing then there's no -- normally, you would sort of decompress with your friends after the show, you know, like your fellow castmates, the writers you talk about how things went and then you're operating in this weird vacuum and you have none of the release and none of the social part of the show. and there's no -- it must be so
12:55 am
weird to start this year, like, new people that started, because there's no, like, going out for a drink after the table read and learning about why things aren't getting in the show or not getting in the show. or that -- everyone's living in their own weird vacuum and when you see people with masks on, you never want to talk to anyone with a mask on you're just like, yeah, all right, whatever. it feels like you're greeting someone in a hospital. >> seth: it's so true about new people, because i remember when i started, one of my first reactions was, "huh, so there's no cocaine anymore." and now for them, it must be, "so there's not even beer! [ laughter ] >> yeah, you're allowed one soft drink after the show [ laughter ] but you really do, like, truly, we'll have a drink -- we'll have, like, one beer in a hallway where you're shouting down the hallway to a fellow cast member. and that's, like - that's like the closest we've had to a party >> seth: sounds great. >> so, this is the year to sign up, guys
12:56 am
[ laughter ] if you're looking to join, sign up i'm really selling it. and it's a dream job everyone's on the verge of a mental breakdown, and you can't drink anymore at work. [ laughter ] sorry. >> seth: we did -- you know, we obviously, to be in the building, you know, you and i get tested every day and we took advantage of that. i'm happy to say that two weeks ago, after my show, i just hung out in my office and then you came down to my office and we got super hammered and watched youtube videos together. >> yeah, it was pretty fun you ordered us cheeseburgers, and we ate cheeseburgers on your desk like it was a table >> seth: yep >> and -- great. one of the greatest nights of my life >> seth: yeah. that's the new rainbow room. >> oh, yeah, that's -- >> seth: the new rainbow room is office burgers and youtube and then we both -- at the end of the night, we both spun
12:57 am
around and went "new york city!" >> i mean, that was probably my wildest night out in new york in the last six months. >> seth: 100%. >> and i didn't leave the building >> seth: yeah. you did -- since the last time you were on the show, obviously, as established, i've seen you, you did get married. jost married and this is -- for people who couldn't tell by colin's gold chain, he is from staten island. [ laughter ] >> that's where we did the wedding and the reception. cans are real. my brother did some great photoshop work i know it looks real, but they didn't actually tie a bunch of 100-foot-long cans on the back of the staten island ferry i mean, they probably -- someone would have used it as an excuse to get bodies in the can that they needed to get rid of. [ laughter ] someone i grew up would have put bodies in the cans and been like, "oh. um, yeah, it's also very strange to get married, because part of marriage is, obviously, sort of
12:58 am
entering society as a couple, you know that's, like, the traditional idea of marriage so instead, it's like, just, again, everything happening in a vacuum, and some of our closest friends we haven't seen in a year, you know, couldn't come to the wedding. and we actually went through - we got engaged and then immediately went to london to film -- i went to film "tom and jerry," and scarlett went to film "black widow. we'll see which one ends up being the bigger hit [ laughter ] the jury's out >> seth: colin, colin, do not put money on this. [ laughter ] >> we left -- we got engaged, then basically fled town, so i didn't see anyone that summer. then i went right back into "snl," and then covid hit. so, there's been basically these two years that have been a huge moment in our lives where we haven't seen most of our friends. >> seth: wait, am i finding out now for the first time that tom and jerry are also british actors who are doing american accents this whole time?
12:59 am
>> yes that's the big scoop yeah we just had regé on, and hopefully -- we'll see, fingers crossed, tom and jerry join nick jonas this week >> seth: i want to ask about nick jonas i want to talk more about "tom and jerry. we'll be right back with more from colin jost right after this ♪

1:06 am
being in a film with actual actors, trained actors, actors who have been in other movies, it really -- the difference in your skill set was obvious >> yes i had a lot of scenes with michael peña, who is not only very funny, but a great actor. and we would be in a scene and there would be, you know, like 200 extras around us they had obviously been setting up this whole shot and the scene and the set for days and everyone waiting and then i would come in and i would walk into the set, completely miss my mark, not even consider where -- it never even dawned on me that there was a mark walked way past it up to michael peña, start talking to him, have a long, emotional speech and he's looking at me like, "mm-hmm," just like smiling. and i'm like, it's weird that this emotional speech is kind of making him laugh, but -- and then after the fact, he's
1:07 am
like, "you were out of focus the entire speech. he goes, "you just blew way past your mark. none of the cameras capture you talking. and he just enjoyed letting me do it so he could just rub it in my face about how much worse an actor i am on just the very basic not being on camera level. we normally sit at a desk. >> seth: yeah. >> we don't really have to worry if we're off a couple inches it doesn't really matter are, apparently, like work-based on focus and light and things like that, and when you're not in those things, it's bad. >> seth: um, hey, this is very rare, but we just got some news. andy samberg has reached out he wants you to check your phone right now. >> oh, my god, jesus all right, well, let me -- i'm filming on it, so hold on.
