Antonio Banderas can make anything sound sexy. At least that’s what Stephen Colbert seems to think. The Late Show host put his theory to the test on Tuesday night, as he had Banderas try to add some passion to three bland sentences.

The first: “Do you have these khakis with pleats?” (“I don’t even know what that means,” Banderas said after reading the line.)

The second: “The fish of the day is tilapia.”

The third: “I’m Jeb Bush, and I’m running for president.”
