Scarlett Johansson and presidential hopeful Mayor Pete Buttigieg appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, joining the host in a round of True Confessions.
In the game, each player relays an anecdote and is then quizzed by the other two players, who then must decide if they’re telling the truth.
It’s no easy task, especially when you’re up against an actor and a politician. It wasn’t made simpler by the trio’s plausible yet unusual stories, which involved Johansson getting stung by a jellyfish on the face (and not peed on, thanks) and Mayor Pete chowing down on an ice cream sundae made out of pork.
None of the tales were technically what I would call a “confession”, but the two guests did get to roast the host.
“Out of all the people that could have taken initiative…” said Buttigieg, throwing doubt on Fallon’s tale of saving Jerry Seinfeld from choking.
“Yeah, it was you?” queried a skeptical Johansson.
