During the usual humorous newscast, each of the presenters, in this case, Jost and Michael Che, writes a series of jokes that his partner is forced to read live without knowing their content beforehand, as explained by the Tikitakas portal.
This fun practice pretends that the hosts cannot contain their laughter during the transmission, because the joke is not expected, much less will they know what it can be about.
“It has been learned that the singer of Creed, Scott Stapp, will play Frank Sinatra in a new movie,” that’s how the joke began.
And Che decided to gamble with Jost with a joke that alludes to some of the controversies that Johansson has suffered throughout her acting career.
The surprise came for the husband of the ‘Black Widow’, when he had to read, laughing, the teleprinter the following:
The good news is that Sammy Davis Jr. (member of Sinatra’s famous ‘Rat Pack’) will be played by Scarlett Johansson
At that moment everything exploded, as the comedian could not contain his laughter, at the same time that he covered his face, perhaps thinking that it would not go well for him when he got home, because, without a doubt, his wife by then would have already left. found out about that joke.
