Who doesn’t love a good sleepover? Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had some fun as he hosted a sleepover for a sketch with The Late Late Show host James Corden that ran during the Thursday Night Football pregame show before the Packers-Lions broadcast.
The premise is simple, Corden doesn’t know many people in Los Angeles and says the best way to make friends in America is to have a sleepover. He knocks on the door and is greeted by Romo dressed in a full Superman outfit. (Don’t call them pajamas.) See for yourself.
The two then go through all the obligatory sleepover activities. They awkwardly play a clapping game, roast marshmallows on the stove, wear facial masks and painting their toenails, ask each other which Sex and the City the character they would be (Corden is Samantha), play Jenga (Corden pokes fun at Romo losing all the time) and stuff marshmallows in their face while trying to say “chubby bunny.”
The highlight of the sketch is when the duo build a pillow fort and tell scary stories. Corden shares a tale about a black and white monster who says “no catch,” a nod to the infamous Dez Bryant no-catch ruling from earlier this year against the Green Bay Packers. Romo doesn’t want to tell any more ghost stories after that.
What makes this bit so funny is that Romo is totally game, playing a (presumably) ridiculous version of himself. When the quarterback tells Corden that his Superman outfit isn’t pajamas, his face is total glee. I’m going out on a limb and saying Romo wouldn’t make for a bad actor because he’s really fun in this.
