Bragging About Your Ignorance

– Man they have been making some good soup here in movies lately. How do you feel about Tom
Holland in “Spider-Man”? – I’ve actually never seen
any “Spider-Man” movies. – Well the new ones are great. Tom Holland is so fun. I can’t wait to see what he does next. – I’m not even familiar
with the characters or the basic plot. – I thought he was amazing in “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Endgame.” – The Avengers? I don’t know anything about them. – I thought he really held his own so great against all those heavy hitters. – Captain America (laughs). – Nobody said that. – It’s like when people talk about him I’m just like who even is that, you know? I wouldn’t know because I’ve
never seen anything with him. – Yeah Katie we know you’re not familiar with the Avengers or “Spider-Man”. You love to talk about it. – I don’t think I’ve ever talked
about this before actually. – Yeah you do.
– Well you talk about that You definitely do and it’s not impressive. A lot of people don’t watch these movies. It doesn’t matter. – The thing about it is that
if everyone likes something, that means that it is both dumb and bad. – No that’s absolutely not true. – No, no, and no. – And thus I have better taste
and am more of an intellect because I have chosen to not participate in extremely popular cultural phenomena. – No, it just makes
you annoying to talk to ’cause you’re so proud
of not knowing things. – For instance, if someone
references Game of Thrones, I literally have to go
to a computer and look up what they’re talking about. – We know, it’s because you’ve– – Never seen any of it. It’s true, I am completely ignorant. I can’t even talk during
conversations about it. – You’re talking right now. You’re talking right now. – You’re talking about it. – You’ve been interrupting
us this whole time. – You brought it up. – And by the way, that show already ended. – Oh my god I had no idea, did it really? I’m so sorry Lily, did
you say Harry Potter? – No. – No. – You did.
– I didn’t cut her off. You cut her off, and
you said Harry Potter. – You said Harry Potter. – You were trying to
talk about Harry Potter. – I actually don’t even
want to talk about it. – Here’s what I think of Potis. A kid with glasses has to fight some snake lookin’ dude using magic? – Really? That’s all you know about Harry Potter. You’ve never heard of the sorting hat. – Nope. – Dumbledore, Hermione? – (blows air) Freaking wish. – What about the four houses? – Do you mean like shelters
or places of residence, because yes I’ve heard of houses Ron Dale. I’m not an idiot. – Oh come on. – Yeah I may not know pop culture but I certainly know what a house is. – Come on, everybody
knows about Harry Potter. It’s constantly referenced. – You would have had to
not gone outside your house for the last two decades
to not know anything. – I’m sorry I guess I don’t. I guess I’m a big disappointment, because I don’t know a damn thing. – All right, you know what? Let’s just talk about something else. – Great. – I would love to. – Oh, did you guys see the game on Sunday? – What game are we talking about? Sports ball something? I don’t know the first thing about sports. Is football the one that
takes place in swimming pools? – What are you even getting out of this? – I don’t know what you mean. – Why are you so damn
proud of your ignorance? – I’m not! – Oh really? Shut up! Just shut up! (everyone yelling) – Get the hell off me before I kick you! You wanna know why I’m like this? – Yeah. – I refuse to participate
in your low brow nonsense until the two of you participate
in the thing that I like. – And what the hell is that? (upbeat string music) – Dash Robertson Visits the White House, trilogy written by Meredith Sharks. There, are you happy now? – What even is that? – You’ve never heard of this? – No, no one is! – These are the finest books
I have ever come across. Each one is over a thousand pages long. You definitely need to be looking up every other word in the dictionary. It’s very hard to understand. You guys get into these bad boys, and then we’ll talk about what you like. – Holy crap, Dash just
snuck into the West Wing’s private bathroom for the president. – (shushes) No spoilers!
