Ricky Gervais has aging pendulums and cucumbers on the brain

Posted on

“What’s the worst thing about getting older?”

There are so many ways to answer that question, but for Ricky Gervais, there’s really only one.

The original Office star appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday and the two funnymen played a game of Random People, Random Questions, where they answered strangers’ inquiries filmed outside at 30 Rock in New York City. When asked about the perils of aging, Gervais gave an honest, if not unexpected, answer.

After complaints about his knees and “a stiff neck, stiff back,” Fallon made him choose just one thing. “Pendulous testicles,” Gervais declared.

Questlove nearly did a spit-take as Fallon was incredulous.

Gervais continued to give a bit more detail about this situation when he takes a bath, but you’ll have to watch that for yourself.
