Stoned comedians perform a dramatic reading of Jaden and Willow Smith

Brendan Regan and Cecilia Lederer

We figured out the only way to make this interview sound more pretentious.

This week, the New York Times gave us an unprecedented interview with Jaden and Willow Smith, offspring of actors Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. They said everything you’d hope to hear from unschooled celebrity millionaire teens raised in the Church of Scientology—and more.

But all that word salad sounded awfully familiar, almost as if we’d heard it before in some grimy dorm room with jaded English lit majors choking on a haze of sour diesel. So we grabbed a couple of New York comedians (Brendan Regan, of improv team Teenage Cop, and my wife, Cecilia Lederer, whose credits include The Colbert Report and Late Night With Conan O’Brien). We got ourselves in, shall we say, a very good mood, and shoved them in front of a camera for a truly trippy dramatic reading. Prepare to have your mind blown.

Someone remind me to use “Because living” as an answer to any question I’m ever asked for the rest of my natural life.
