You’re on a date with one of the most beautiful and talented actresses working in Hollywood. You have absolutely everything you need to ensure that the night goes perfectly: an Academy Award-winning movie, freshly popped popcorn and smooth one-liners ready for delivery. The only problem is, there’s an improvised explosive device trapped in your trousers and ready to detonate at a moment’s notice. What do you do, hotshot? What do you do?
Well, if you’re Aziz Ansari , you tell your date the truth and hope for the best.
The 2010 MTV Movie Awards host faces this very dilemma in a new commercial promoting the awards show, which airs live at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 6. In the video, Ansari is enjoying a romantic night alone with “When in Rome” actress Kristen Bell and a special 4-D copy of “The Hurt Locker.” (That’s right, 4-D — eat your heart out, James Cameron!) But the perfect night goes awry when Bell asks Ansari what the acronym “IED” stands for.
“Improvised explosive device,” he answers quietly, before changing his tone to something significantly more sinister. “You know, I have an improvised explosive device in my pants where my bing-bong is. Maybe you can come into the bedroom and help me disarm it?”
And just like an accidentally triggered bomb, the perfect date explodes right in front of Ansari’s eyes. But little did Bell know that Ansari wasn’t making a not-so-subtle attempt to get her between the sheets; he literally meant that there was a device in his pants waiting to explode!
We won’t spoil the resolution for you, but here’s one thing you can count on: If Ansari manages to get out of this situation with his “bing-bong” intact, he’ll have plenty of other equally hilarious sketches on display at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards next month.
Don’t miss the MTV Movie Awards, airing Sunday, June 6, at 9 p.m. ET on MTV!
