Macaulay Culkin + Tom Green Talk Dead Cats And Dating Famous Actresses
Wake up, Warren! It’s a special early morning edition of the Bunny Ears Podcast. Today, Macaulay Culkin and Tom Green come to you from the ridiculous hour of 11:00 A.M., a time so early for Mack that he’s still in his pink bunny pajamas and sipping a glass of wine. Tom Green of MTV and general comedy fame—doesn’t judge him, though. In fact, after a somewhat awkward and very roundabout exchange, he’s finally offered one himself.
The very special Macaulay Culkin and Tom Green conversation kicks off on a high note with an enthusiastic discussion of dog death. Mack has had 14 dead cats! Not, like, all at the same time in the same room or anything, but still, that’s a lot of dead cats. He currently has two (normal, alive cats, not dead ones). Also, he’s not sure what to call cats who are born to the same parents but not the same litter. Are they brothers? Cousins? Brother-cousins?
Speaking of complicated families, Tom reveals his parents’ thoughts on the bits he used to do with them on MTV (remember? The ones that frequently involved pranking them), as well as their thoughts on Mack. It turns out that famous people really are just like us: Their parents also like Macaulay Culkin more than they like their own kids.
Other topics of discussion include how many balls Tom has and what ate them, the “Dadaist masterpiece” of Freddy Got Fingered (which Tom attempts to explain with questionable success), Mack’s CIA aspirations, why cashiers have more power than you think, the house fire that almost killed Tom and Drew Barrymore, the woes of dating beautiful actresses, and a defense of the pair’s respective musical talents. (Remember “The Bum Bum Song”? Mack also sings a delightful song at the start of the podcast.)
After the episode, make sure to check out Tom’s website and listen to his new song, “I Wanna Be Friends With Drake,” and follow Tom on Instagram @tomgreen and Twitter @tomgreenlive. He’s on tour right now, so he might be coming to your city! Also, consider leaving Mack a voicemail at (845) 393-4629 (EZE-HOAX). He’s so lonely.
