When Elvis Presley Met Richard Nixon (feat. Jack Black & Bob Odenkirk) – Drunk History


HELLO! TODAY, WE’RE GONNA TALK
ABOUT THE DAY THAT THE KING MET NIXON. MY FAVORITE STORY
OF ALL TIME IS ELVIS WAS OUT IN L.A.
AND THEY WERE AT A DINNER. AND THE PEOPLE HE WAS WITH
WERE LIKE, HEY, THAT GUY OVER THERE
IS HUGE IN THE VOICEOVER
ANIMATION WORLD. BUT HE IS A FEDERALLY LICENSED
NARCOTICS OFFICER. IT’S THE ULTIMATE BADGE.
YOU CAN DO ANYTHING WITH IT. YOU CAN PULL OVER ANY CAR,
ANYTHING IN THE WORLD. AND ELVIS BECOMES OBSESSED. HE WALKS UP TO THE GUY,
INTRODUCES HIMSELF. THE GUY SHOWS HIS BADGE.
I AM THE GUY. I CAN ARREST EVERYONE IN HERE
RIGHT NOW. AND SUDDENLY, ELVIS IS LIKE,
I HAVE TO HAVE THAT BADGE. I NEED THAT BADGE.
HOW CAN THIS GUY– IF HE HAS A BADGE– MR. DO THE CRAZY-FUNNY
WOODCOCK VOICE? NO. I CAN DO IT. IT DROVE HIM NUTS. WE’RE GOING TO WASHINGTON, AND THIS BADGE
IS [bleep] HAPPENING. LET’S GO. CHEERS MMM!
THAT’S GOT A GOOD TASTE. THAT’S–THAT’S A LOT
TO DO A SHOT. – YOU’RE INSANE!
WHOO! – YEAH, WE SHOULD’VE
JUST SIPPED THAT. – WHOO! – READY?
– OKAY, BUDDY. ELVIS WRITES A LETTER TO NIXON
WHILE ON THE PLANE. THEY LAND, AND HE DROPS IT OFF
AT THE FRONT OF THE WHITE HOUSE. IT WAS SHOCKING. NO CELEBRITIES WANT
TO HANG OUT WITH NIXON. SO WHEN HE REACHED OUT,
THEY’RE LIKE, ELVIS WANTS TO MEET WITH YOU. THIS CAN’T HURT MATTERS. DON’T YOU WANNA SEE
WHAT ELVIS HAS TO SAY? WHY NOT? HE’S LIKE, YEAH, ARRANGE IT.
YEAH, I WANNA MEET HIM. LET’S SEE WHAT’S GOING ON. AND ELVIS COMES IN. AND NIXON LOOKS AT HIM
LIKE, UH, THIS IS CRAZY, MAN.
YOU DRESS REALLY CRAZY, MAN. HE’S LIKE, HEY,
YOU HAVE YOUR GET-UP, I HAVE MINE, OKAY? NIXON’S LIKE,
YEAH, I’M GLAD YOU CAME BY. I WANTED TO MEET YOU,
AND GOOD TO SEE YOU. AND ELVIS DOES
THE HARD SELL THING. HE NEEDS THE BADGE. WELL, I CARE, MAN. I CARE ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON
WITH THESE PEOPLE. AND I CARE ABOUT THE HIPPIES, AND EVERYTHING THAT’S
BEING SAID RIGHT NOW, MAN. IT’S TERRIFYING. PEOPLE THAT ARE SAYING
THINGS ABOUT YOU AND, UH, THE PEOPLE
THAT ARE SAYING THINGS ABOUT ME. AND THAT’S WHY I’M HAPPY
TO BE HERE…MAN. BUT I NEED THIS BADGE.
THIS IS SO BIG FOR ME. I NEED IT. AND NIXON REALLY TAKES IT IN,
KINDA ASKS HIS AIDE. HE’S LIKE, CAN WE DO THIS? AND THE AIDE COMES BACK, SAYS,
I’M SORRY, IT’S DONE. WE CANNOT GIVE THIS BADGE.
SORRY, MR. PRESLEY, WE CANNOT– YOU HAVE NO QUALIFICATIONS
IN OUR MIND TO HAVE THIS BADGE. [burps] MM.
SORRY, BROTHER. I’M LOVIN’ IT. AND NIXON DECIDES
TO GIVE HIM THIS BADGE. SO ELVIS GOES BACK
TO GET PHOTOS TAKEN, BUT THEN ELVIS IS A LICENSED AND REGISTERED
FEDERAL NARCOTICS AGENT. SO ELVIS HAD POLICE LIGHTS,
WOULD PULL PEOPLE OVER. YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
HOW FAST YOU WERE GOING? ANOTHER TIME,
HE SAW THIS CRAZY LUNATIC GUY. THE GUY WAS ALLOWED INSIDE. AND EVERYONE’S LIKE,
WHY IS THIS CRAZY PERSON BEING ALLOWED INSIDE?
THIS IS– HE’S LIKE, NO, NO!
HE’S ALL RIGHT, MAN. HE’S OKAY.
HE’S PART OF THIS TEAM. WE’RE GONNA WORK WITH HIM, MAN.
HE’S FUNNY. AND THEN ELVIS LIKED HIM,
LOVED HIM, AND THEN GOT TIRED OF HIM. SO HE SAID
HE HAD TO GO HOME. ELVIS WAS GONNA PAY
FOR HIS FLIGHT HOME. COME BACK,
SOME JEWELRY’S MISSING. SO THEY FIGURED OUT THIS GUY
HAD STOLEN SOME JEWELRY. ELVIS FREAKS OUT. HE’S GONNA REGRET THE DAY
HE STOLE THAT JEWELRY, MAN. HE–HE MESSED
WITH THE WRONG GUY. THE GUY WAS
ABOUT TO TAKE OFF, AND THEN HE SEES ELVIS RUNNING
NEXT TO IT IN A JUMPSUIT, HOLDING A REAL FEDERAL
NARCOTICS BADGE. SO THE PLANE STOPS,
THEY PULL THE GUY OUT. ELVIS PULLED THE PLANE OVER TO PULL THIS GUY OFF
AND INTERROGATE HIM… OF WHICH ELVIS HAD
A COUPLE RANDOM QUESTIONS. WHERE’D YOU GET
THE JEWELRY, MAN? AND HE JUST CRIED AND SAID,
I GOT THE JEWELRY HERE. I’M SO SORRY. YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE TAKEN THAT,
BUT YOU’RE CAR– [stammers]
ALL RIGHT. SO WE’RE GOOD, MAN. GIVES HIM LIKE 200 BUCKS, AND THEN BUYS HIM
ANOTHER TICKET OUT. AND YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING’S
JUST A LITTLE BIT SAFER IN THAT PART OF MEMPHIS. DO YOU FEEL IT? HEY!
DO YOU FEEL IT? THANK YOU. – THANK YOU.
– THANK YOU. – THANK YOU.
– OKAY, BYE.
