I Apologize for Talking While You Were Talking – World Cup Rundown | The Daily Show

October 17, 2019


The World Cup is underway, and I haven’t missed
a single game. In fact,
I put a sign on my office door so that I wouldn’t be
interrupted. Right? I, um… Yeah, I know, I could just say
that I’m watching soccer, but I don’t want
my American coworkers to look at me weird,
so that’s what I did. For a complete World “Cupdate,” let’s go to Roy Wood Jr.
and Michael Kosta in our sports segment I Apologize for Talking
While You Were Talking. -♪ ♪
-(cheering and applause) WOOD:
Oh, man. -KOSTA: Yeah!
-WOOD: Yeah! (both grunting) -Hello!
-About time. -Yeah!
-Oh! Thank you, Trevor.
The World Cup is here, and I’m proud to report America,
still undefeated. (laughter) America’s not in the World Cup. Exactly. You can’t lose
when you don’t play, Roy, so… Anyway, 32 other countries
are playing in the World Cup, and the favorites
are struggling. Portugal forced Spain to a tie
in their matchup. That makes sense, Roy.
They tie in everything. Same peninsula, same language, -Different language.
-same culture. In fact, I think they tied
because they both stopped for a little siesta
halfway through the game. That was 100% wrong. Now, yesterday
we also saw Switzerland fight the mighty Brazil
to a tie, and before that,
Argentina and Messi -only tied against Iceland.
-Oh. Iceland! A country so small -that Björk was a sub
on their bench. -That’s true. (laughter and applause) -Wow.
-But the biggest shock so far was that Mexico beat
defending champion Germany, which was
a literal seismic upset. A huge upset at the World Cup as Mexico defeated
the defending champions Germany, and there were shock waves–
literally– in Mexico City. At nearly the same time
that one Mexico goal was scored, sensors detected
a mini earthquake. The Mexican Geological Survey
said possibly set off by so many fans
jumping in the air all at one time. Think about that, Roy. Mexican fans jumped so hard
they set off an earthquake. (groans) And Trump think he gonna stop these (bleep)
with a wall? That is true. (cheering and applause) But my favorite part
of the World Cup is how all the countries
from all around the world bring all their unique cultures
and traditions to Russia, and Russia does not like it. Now the strange World Cup story
of the day comes from right here
in Kaliningrad. The Russian authorities have
banned Nigeria fans from bringing chickens to
the game as a good luck charm. They say they had
several requests from Nigeria fans
to bring in chickens. Now I’ve not spoken to any
Nigeria journalist or fans who remember ever wanting
to bring chickens into a game, but the Russian authorities say that this will be a chicken-free
zone on Saturday night. Uh-uh. These Africans are crazy. Bringing chickens
as a good-luck charm? Who does that? Why don’t they just cut off
the foot of a dead rabbit -like a normal person? Aah!
-Well… I don’t think
it’s that crazy, Roy. Nigeria, if you want to get
those chickens into the game, -let me teach you a little
white-person trick, okay? -Yeah. Take your chicken,
put a vest on it, call it
your emotional support animal. -(laughter, applause, cheering)
-Yeah. Yeah. That’s how I got my alligator
past the TSA. And if you’re watching, Chompy,
Daddy loves you, okay? You have a gator
that calls you “Daddy”? Anyway,
it’s been an amazing World Cup, and we can’t wait to do it again
in four years, so… Oh, Kosta, they just started. -This thing goes
four more weeks. -God damn it. Roy Wood, Jr.
and Michael Kosta, everybody.

  1. This is the best time ever every four years for soccer fans.. and this particular World Cup is absolutely delivering. Not missing a single game

  2. ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ

  3. The Chicken story has been proven to be hoax. The Nigeria fan group members that were in Russia denied this and said Nigeria never bring live chickens to a game. It was probably a few people who decided to prank the Russians Federation. Do more research next time before we make fun of a country, especially an African one, Trevor

  4. I feel like people forget Americans don't care that much about the world cup and seeing Mexico beat Germany isn't a big deal as people are making it with "look at him try to build that Wall" sorry one game isn't what makes them a better team, only if they win it all

  5. Personally I don't like sports as a Jamaican… but if Ibhad to choose sports to watch it would be soccer,track and field, and probably ice skating and the entire winter olympics…. but now my family loves sports and go wild whenever something happens… and I'm just like "wtf? Who are you rooting for?"…. I just can't…

  6. โ€œAnd trump thinks he gonna stop these mother*****s with all Wallโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ต

  7. mini earthquake because mexico fans jumped when their team scored ? we are all so lucky america is not in the world cup that would be the end of the world as we know it (and i feel fine)

  8. Everyone coming together for a championship but the US not being a part of it. Symbolic of what's happening today. Also, Russia's hosting this shit. Even more symbolic ๐Ÿ˜›

  9. 30,000 Iceland fans traveled to Russia, Thats almost 10% of the country population. thats real country support!!

  10. America IS in the World Cup!!! Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, Peru… etc. Because like any well educated people know, AMERICA is a continent.

  11. I died at the โ€˜emotional animal support โ€˜ ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

  12. Sadly Portugal doesn't share the Spanish "siesta" cultural hallmark ๐Ÿ™
    I mean it, it's very sad that we don't get to do that. It's 93โ„‰ in June, on its way to even higher temperatures in July and August, and we should all be napping the afternoon heat away.

  13. Thank you, thank you, thank you … for doing soccer comedy in America. It's awesome and long overdue!

  14. If anyone here dislikes Sean Hannity. This video is for you. Fox is collapsing on itself lmao the ending 50 seconds is where the part my eyes widened https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=226&v=Xp8DOAPRYAw

  15. No Trevor!!! Come on that story about chickens is a non story, pure lies from the media outlets. Ask any Nigerian and they'll tell you.

  16. not nice for not having Ronny Chieng present the world cup, after what he suffered in last session of daily show

  17. So, last time they won't let the asian speak but as soon as a white guy appears no fucken interruptions are displayed. SAD!!

  18. Mexico beat Nazis Germany bcos of the Donald Trump insults on them calling .Mexican rapist so then mexica had to rape his family first in the world cup.Since he is a German Nazis.

  19. Its just a waste of time talking the audience where 95% of them dont even know what World cup you are talking about… ?!

  20. Lies…..None of Nigerian culture believes chicken to be a good luck charm. BBC sport should get there shit right

  21. Portugal forced Spain to a tie!?!?! We are the European champion!!!!!! We are always the favorite ones!!!

  22. Don't Americans call everything they play, ' world cup' , 'world series'? Even they are the only one playing?

  23. Hell yeah, Mexico!!!
    I'm rooting for ya!!
    I don't really know what those
    guys were talking about, but
    you're the closest Country.

  24. Trevor I really like your work but this video is disgusting…only proves how Americans are far away from other countries cultures and know nothing about football. With your background you should do better. Disappointed.

  25. I'm enjoying these World Cup skits. I'm an avid WC viewer. I really enjoy the pinnacle of football competition every 4 years ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Portuguese people adding Michael Kosta's name to the list of people forbidden to ever taste a pastel de nata: "Same language! He DARES!! The. SAME. LANGUAGE! and siesta???? live and REPENT KOSTA NO MORE PORT WINE FOR YOU BOY"

  27. Forget why a gator would/could call a man Daddy- why name that gator Chompy? ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
