Atlanta rap star and DJ Lil Jon was incredibly jazzed to be on “Talking Dead” tonight as a super fan of “The Walking Dead.”
He joined Austin Amelio (Dwight) and Josh McDermitt (Eugene) for a fun-filled hour which ended with a super cool science experiment called “elephant toothpaste.” (See the results below)
Lil Jon wore a shirt emblazoned with the words “Old Atlanta” and would scream out every so often in that Lil Jon way. He also uttered the F bomb a couple of times, which had to be bleeped out.
When host Chris Hardwick asked him about the return of that annoyingly chipper song “Easy Street” Dwight used to torture Daryl in an earlier episode, Lil Jon noted how the “style of the show has changed a little bit. I thought it was very smooth the way they flipped it. We should have known going into this episode we’d see that song come back. To see [Eugene] bobbing his head, like he was really on easy street. I don’t like the song at all!”
Lil Jon said Eugene was treated so well because Negan sensed he was easy and an asset.
He thinks despite Eugene’s proclamation of loyalty to Negan, the character has not betrayed Rick’s group: “He’s trying not to get his a** whooped or die.”
When asked about Dwight engineering Dr. Carson’s death, “That was savage as F! Negan is the all time greatest gangster ever. The Joker is not as demented as Negan and the Joker is demented as F.”
Lil Jon said he’d be careful in Negan’s land at first. “You don’t have to fight all the time,” Lil Jon said. “I’d play it cool.”
After a fan placed a gold grill that had been in McDermitt’s mouth into his mouth, Lil Jon exclaimed, “I want to throw up. Give me that bed pan! That was terrible. That was disgusting, bro!” He was kidding – more or less.
He also agreed that Eugene was smart not to give those death pills to the sister wives. “You have to calculate your steps and you have to also think if you get caught, it will come right back to Eugene and he’s out of there!”
They finished the hour repeating the science experiment from “The Walking Dead.” As McDermitt (a comic, not a scientist in real life) read on a card, elephant toothpaste is caused by rapid decomposition of hydrogen peroxide. Lil Jon just yells out “Skeet, skeet, skeet” at one point. (I won’t say what that is. You’ll be able to find out online but there is a connection.) The results? See below:
