David Letterman said last night that his Super Bowl commercial confused his mother: “My mom called and said, ‘David, who was the guy with Oprah and Jay?'”
Biff Henderson also expressed a certain loyalty to Leno. (About three minutes in here.)
A bit later Letterman noted that after the idea was conceived and broadcast, “People thought it was really hot stuff. So I’d like to thank the actors who played Oprah and Jay Leno.”
One of the best parts of last night’s show was seeing Sandra Bullock — who demonstrated that she can catch and throw a football while in high heels — needle Dave.
After showing some amusing pictures taken at an awards show of Bullock open-mouth-kissing Meryl Streep, Dave said with mock-severity, “Well, I guess that’s the kind of thing you people do out in Hollywood,” Bullock shot back, “Oh, I suppose you’ve never kissed a woman before, Dave.” (Occurs about 2:30 in here.)
Glad Bullock has reaped an Oscar nomination even if I haven’t seen The Blind Side, if for no other reason than it means she makes sparky TV appearances such as this one.
Did you watch Dave last night?
