Hello, honey.
00:11
Hi.
00:13
I'm Natasha Lyonne...
00:16
And this is my ASMR video for W Magazine.
00:22
Pee-Wee's Playhouse.
00:27
Pee-Wee's Playhouse was a show
00:29
for children and grown-ups in the '80s.
00:34
I played Opal.
00:36
Sometimes she would be called Opal-O if she got a nickname.
00:42
Laurence Fishburne was in it.
00:45
He's in The Matrix.
00:48
We're all living in a matrix.
00:54
And to represent my time on the show,
00:57
I'm going to un-box Pee-Wee.
01:09
What a great package.
01:15
I'm going to now open the plastic around Pee-Wee.
01:22
[package tearing and crinkling]
01:30
It's open.
01:36
Now I'm going to get him out of the package.
01:41
[package crinkling]
01:59
Hi, Pee-Wee.
02:00
How've you been?
02:03
Uh, okay, Natasha, how have you been?
02:07
Oh, I've been doing pretty well,
02:10
thanks for asking, cool suit.
02:13
Yeah, I wear it all the time.
02:17
Thanks for hangin' out, I'm gonna put you down now.
02:26
I'm gonna put this away so it doesn't get in the way.
02:29
[package crinkling]
02:33
[package tearing]
02:35
It's time to say goodnight now, Pee-Wee.
02:39
Why don't you get on your scooter and go.
02:41
Okay.
02:46
Orange is the New Black.
02:51
I play Nicky Nichols on the show.
02:55
It takes place in a women's prison, Litchfield.
03:00
In season two, or maybe later seasons,
03:03
it became maximum security.
03:05
I think it maybe was season four, I can't recall.
03:09
Either way, it's now in its last season.
03:14
It's gonna come out this summer.
03:16
I'm so close with those people.
03:19
We became a real team.
03:22
I love them very much.
03:25
Anyway, I'm now gonna show you some things.
03:28
It's gonna be pretty exciting, so...
03:31
Hold onto your panty rags.
03:33
I'm now gonna unwrap some original season one handcuffs
03:39
that were used on the show to handcuff various actors
03:45
who behaved poorly on set.
03:51
[plastic crinkling]
03:56
These were shared by Danielle Brooks and Taylor Schilling.
04:01
[plastic crinkling]
04:13
Samira Wiley and I tried to fight for them.
04:17
We wanted to keep them.
04:21
When handcuffing a person, remember to hide the key,
04:25
but don't lose it.
04:28
[handcuffs clicking]
04:35
I'm gonna do this for 45 minutes.
04:44
The other one is a handcuff for the other hand.
04:48
Some people have two hands.
04:55
It's very dangerous to handcuff yourself,
04:57
and then put yourself in a coffin,
04:59
and go underwater, but Houdini did it.
05:03
He was not on Orange is the New Black
05:05
in any of the seasons.
05:12
I kept the keys because I'm a kleptomaniac.
05:20
I put them in my bra because I'm a pervert.
05:27
Russian Doll.
05:31
Russian Doll is a show I created.
05:34
It's on Netflix.
05:37
Orange is the New Black is there too.
05:40
It's all on Netflix.
05:43
The world is the internet.
05:45
The Matrix, Laurence Fishburne was in The Matrix,
05:49
and on Pee-Wee's Playhouse.
05:52
May I please have my Russian doll?
06:02
She's a real babe-ushka.
06:04
That's a joke, right?
06:07
The real term is a matryoshka doll.
06:14
Hello, honey.
06:22
This is a smaller doll than the one on the outside.
06:24
That's a Russian doll.
06:31
Sorry about your eardrums.
06:33
Not my baby, not my problem.
06:40
This one is even tinier than the one before, and so on.
06:44
The mystery continues.
06:50
Uh, can I get some WD-40 for this Russian doll please?
06:58
How fuckin' adorable.
07:05
[gasps] Who is this tiny person?
07:09
Excuse me, miss, what's your name?
07:12
What a looker.
07:14
A real cutie pie.
07:16
Well, I've made a real mess, so I'm gonna leave it here
07:20
and walk away as if this never happened.
07:28
Happy birthday in case I miss yours.
07:32
Thank you.
