00:00
I will now pop some of these Pop Rocks
00:05
and see if we can get a little party started here.
00:08
(Pop Rocks crackling)
00:10
Oh mother.
00:15
Oh mother of father.
00:20
Hello, my name is Jenny Slate.
00:24
I am a human woman.
00:26
And I'm here to do some ASMR for you
00:30
so that you can relax.
00:32
My voice caressing one ear
00:35
and my voice caressing another ear.
00:38
The ears are typically on either side of the human head.
00:43
But also animal heads as well.
00:46
So let's explore my film Obvious Child.
00:51
There's a scene in this film in which
00:55
I dance around in my underwear,
00:58
which is something that I'm actually very good at.
01:01
I love to dance, prance, in my underpants.
01:05
I think it's very fun, very freeing.
01:09
It makes me feel happy and free.
01:13
And it's also very nice to not wear pants
01:16
and listen to those sweet grooves, those Paul Simon grooves.
01:21
Every dad loves Paul Simon.
01:25
There's a scene in Obvious Child,
01:28
it's a beautiful scene.
01:29
Jake Lacy's character warms my butter up for me
01:33
and then I eat it.
01:36
What a beautiful, beautiful interaction.
01:39
I'd love to provide you with some of those important,
01:43
gorgeous sounds.
01:45
Let me reopen my work up for you today.
02:03
(plastic crackling)
02:13
(knife lightly scraping)
02:26
(rubbing bread)
02:36
(bread tearing)
03:03
(knife softly tapping)
03:10
(knife softly clatters)
03:14
(bread ripping)
03:28
(hands rubbing)
03:40
(softly chuckles)
03:53
(exhales)
03:55
Marcel the Shell.
03:57
Some of you might know me as Marcel the Shell.
04:00
He's a one-eyed shell with two shoes
04:03
and a complex personality.
04:07
I invented him with another person as well.
04:13
Wasn't just me.
04:14
Did you hear my stomach?
04:18
This is how you make your very own Marcel the Shell.
04:23
(objects clattering)
04:29
You pick a body, okay?
04:33
(shells clatter)
04:37
Then you pick an eye.
04:43
And then you put it in there like that.
04:48
And you just start talking like this.
04:50
Hi.
04:51
My name is Jenny Slate and I'm at
04:53
the press junket for Venom.
04:54
I did not get the part of Venom.
04:56
I thought that I was gonna be able to play Venom,
04:58
but they gave the part to a man.
05:02
Named Tom.
05:04
He's not even from the United States.
05:07
He had to do an accent.
05:10
I have an American accent but they didn't give me the part
05:13
because I don't have big muscles.
05:15
I guess I don't have the prestige.
05:19
Kroll Show.
05:22
On the Kroll Show, Liz and Liz love to drink
05:25
large iced coffees all day long.
05:29
And I presume all night long as well.
05:32
They also mount an unsuccessful campaign
05:35
for a product called yogurt water.
05:39
Which is really, really gross.
05:47
I would love to make some yogurt water for you today.
06:18
(wrapping tears)
06:28
(fork slapping yogurt)
06:42
(yogurt splashes)
06:51
(fork tapping glass)
07:18
How about an iced coffee?
07:20
How about that?
07:23
Coffee's usually taken into the body while hot,
07:27
usually during the morning hours of the day.
07:30
But I like to drink it cold all day long.
07:42
(straw scraping ice)
08:07
(coffee pouring)
08:24
(cream splashes)
08:30
(ice clattering)
08:51
Venom.
08:54
Venom is the main character in Venom.
08:57
Unfortunately, I don't play Venom.
08:59
I play a scientist.
09:01
I wear glasses and a lab coat and I walk around in the lab,
09:06
and I'm very, very stressed out.
09:09
I would now love to touch and feel
09:12
some science-related props.
09:15
Could I have something to touch please?
09:23
Oh wow.
09:27
Here I have what looks like some Nickelodeon Gak.
09:34
I don't know if you remember this,
09:36
but let's give it a whirl.
09:41
(substance squishing)
09:54
Hi I'm Jenny, what's your name?
09:57
What do you like to do for fun?
10:02
(slapping)
10:09
I bet this is really gonna make some waves on the internet.
10:13
(substance slapping rapidly)
10:18
I've heard a noise like that before,
10:20
but I can't quite remember where.
10:23
Or when.
10:24
See what else we got here.
10:28
Liquid.
10:31
Little squeaks.
10:33
Little squeaks are cute, aren't they?
10:39
Little bubbles.
10:40
Maybe we'll drop this in here
10:43
and I'll do some science with it.
10:45
(glass clangs) Oh.
10:52
Wasn't as loud as I'd like.
10:54
Let's mix these colors.
10:55
Hopefully we'll make some purple.
11:01
Wonderful, wonderful.
11:03
I'm not a scientist in real life, I'm an actress.
11:07
(paper rips)
11:14
Are you ready for this?
11:18
Isn't this beautiful?
11:20
Isn't this gorgeous?
11:22
I will now pop some of these Pop Rocks
11:28
with my little dropper.
11:31
Let's see if we can get a little party started here.
11:36
(Pop Rocks crackling)
11:41
Oh mother.
11:46
Oh mother of father.
11:51
I'm gonna be really, really bad.
11:54
(Pop Rocks sizzling and crackling)
12:09
I do hope that you got a sweet little chance
12:12
to relax yourself while watching me
12:16
stroll down memory lane using these props
12:20
to revisit my precious, precious career moments.
12:26
And I hope that you sleep well tonight
12:30
or that you're just walking down the street
12:33
and you're so relaxed that you fall right down the sidewalk.
12:36
Close your little eyes, take a sweet little snooze, babe.
12:41
I'm so happy to be here today.
12:44
What an honor because I love to chill
12:48
and I love to be chill.
