Ellen: Favorite Real People Moments
“As I mentioned earlier, tomorrow is our 1500th show. Of course, over the past 1,499 shows, I’ve interviewed a ton of celebrities: Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Julia Roberts, George Clooney, and they’re fine if that’s your thing,” Ellen said. “But I’ve met some amazing, amazing, wonderful, regular everyday people. Here are just a few of my favorites from over the last few years.”
Ellenthen showed a video montage of clips from her favorite moments with her fans from the years she’s been doing the show.
Ellen: Old Woman Loves Jesus But Drinks
The first moment was really funny. Ellen was on the phone with an elderly woman.
“Is this the first time you’ve been on TV?” Ellen asked the woman.
“No, I’ve been on TV before,” the woman said. “Listen, I’ll be honest with you. I love Jesus but I drink a little.”
Then the video showcased some of the amazing, and sometimes bizarre, talents of some of her fans.
There was a couple who were juggling flaming pins. There was a person repeatedly doing flips. There was also a very impressive clip of a person jumping a ramp on a skateboard and then landing seamlessly onto a half pipe.
Ellen: Ellen In My Ear Moments
After that, there were clips from “Ellen In My Ear” gags.
The first one showed Ellen instructing a Starbucks employee what to say to a customer.
“I’m sorry,” Ellen told her fan to say. “I was up all night long because my sister was giving birth in my tub.”
“I’m sorry,” the fan said. “I can’t hear because my sister’s giving birth in my head.”
The second one showed Ellen instructing another Starbucks employee what to say to a different customer.
“Oh I just ate so much chocolate I’m full,” Ellen told the employee to say. The employee said it verbatim.
“I just smoked so much weed,” the customer replied.
Ellen: Boy with Diaphragm in His Mouth
The funniest moment was hands down when Ellen laughed at a boy with a diaphragm in his mouth.
“But you have something in your mouth,” Ellen said. “You’re cheating. What is that?”
The boy pulled a small object out of his mouth.
“It’s a diaphragm,” he said.
Ellen got an uncomfortably amused look on her face and casually walked away before losing her cool and bursting into laughter. You could almost hear her thinking about the pun. It was pretty hysterical.
