cinco de mayo come men rates the victory of the mexican war. it's a day of much mexican pride. and nothing fills the mexican community with pride like white people drinking upside down margaritas at chili's. [ laughter ] if it weren't for the irish and the mexicans, between the super bowl and the 4th of july, we would have no reason to get drunk, so -- gracias, as they say. [ laughter ] i want to wish early cinco de mayo to guillermo, who -- where is guillermo? oh. there he is. >> i'm not guillermo, jimmy. for cinco de mayo, i've been cinco claus. ar ariba! ♪ you better watch out ♪ you better not cry ♪ you better watch out ♪ you better not cry ♪ i'm telling you why ♪ cinco claus is m coing to town ♪ ♪ he's making a list ♪ he's checking it twice ♪ tequila everybody
♪ woo ♪ cinco claus is coming ♪ cinco claus is coming ♪ cinco claus is coming to to town ♪ happy cinco de mayo, everybody! >> jimmy: cinco claus is just like santa claus, only intox kated. not only is it cinco de mayo this weekend -- i don't know what just happened, either. [ laughter ] it's prom season, too. which is why all the drugstores are running so low on baby's breath and axe body spray. [ laughter ] prom night could turn out to be the biggest night of your life, assuming you go on to live an exceptionally unremarkable life. but they just did a study that said families will spend just over $1,000, almost $1,100 to send their kid to the prom, which -- that is -- my prom didn't cost -- of course, i didn't go, so it was, yeah, a lot cheaper, but -- [ laughter ]
the theme to my prom was "stay home and watch "simon and simon" while my mom makes chicken parmesan." here's something parents should be aware of. a new national survey shows that heavy marijuana use among teenagers have increased 80% over the last four years, which helps explain the popularity of the band one direction. [ laughter ] and the stuffed crust pizza, for that matter. almost 10% of teens say they smoke pot heavily, which is defined as up to 20 times a month. you know the commercials when the mom brings home the sunny d and the kids freak out? i always wondered -- this is why, it turns out. [ laughter ] this is -- serious concern because experts say pot smoking can be a gateway that leads to kids experimenting with more serious drugs, like alcohol and cigarettes, so -- [ laughter ] might be time to get in that sock drawer and dig, moms, you know? this will be a especially funny to teens on pot. it's a video of a pit bull named boomer. boomer has some very definite opinions on what he does and
what he does not want to do. >> boomer, you want to go outside? you want to take a bath? [ laughter ] you want to go outside? you want to take a bath? >> jimmy: and it goes -- the dogs pretend they don't understand us, but they do. they just do it so they can keep drinking out of the toilet. [ laughter ] in the interest of equal time, since everything is so partisan these days, we have video of a cat keeping a very close eye on a fish. apparently this cat sits and watches this fish every morning. but this day was a little different because on this day, the fish fights back. it's like a -- [ applause ] feline version of "rise of the planet of the apes." have you been following the nba playoffs? the los angeles clippers are in
the playoffs. they played the grizzlies in memphis last night. good game, the grizzlies won it, thanks to a lot of extra effort from their center marc gasol. watch him dive out of bounds for this loose ball. >> have to love this. big gasol going into the stands, watch how, little fella. you don't want to get run over by that big old grizzly right there. >> jimmy: and we got a little -- let's see if we can get a little closer and watch that again. [ laughter ] he's got the peace sign. and that is a -- [ applause ] a clear back court violation. i watched that now about 30 times, i still can't figure out what he was trying to do. maybe trying to stress the importance of getting a regular prostate exam? one of the most anticipated movies of the year, maybe of the decade, comes out tomorrow. it's marvel's "the avengers." [ cheers and applause ] it's all the super heroes gathered together.
and it's nice -- it's kind of cool to see all the characters responsible for my virginity together in one film. is anyone here, are you guys going to see it? [ cheers and applause ] i saw it already. it's great. in case you are wondering, the hulk does, indeed, smash. but you know, right outside our theater, we're very fortunate to have some costume characters of our own. they stand out there all day taking pictures, posing for tourists and what not. in a way, i feel like they are my own personal avengers. so, today, i asked them to gather outside our front steps and i gave them a mission. you know, the one area these superhero movies seem to forget about is merchandising. there's no way to find toys or anything for your kids, you know? so, i asked our avengers to do what they do best, and that is assemble. avengers. i've asked you to assemble here today because we have a problem.
there isn't enough avengers merchandise. so, today, i would like you to design your own avengers t-shirt. you understand? get to work. seacrest out. >> tell me about your drawing spongebob. >> it's about the blazing sun. the sun is the circle of all the superheroes. everything out of orbit is anti-matter. >> that's just a circle. >> yeah. >> that's pretty good. i like that. it's like about escalator that's going up. >> yeah, it's not for today besides, you know, i just think it's his memory, yeah. >> i'm sorry. what? >> you know, it's raining, you know -- >> what? >> falling the heart, you know,
coming -- >> i have no idea what you're even saying. you know, i think there's just a big communication problem between the two of us. and i feel like he's, like, a good guy, but he's in the wrong country. >> chewbacca is a [ bleep ] [ bleep ]. yes. he's a pain. he's always the time breaking my balls, with his, "i don't know what you're saying." >> spongebob, shut up! ahh! >> what do you think of my drawing so far? >> i think it was dirt on the t-shirt, you know? >> like, can you say that one more time? >> i think you have -- >> you look like captain america, but you sound like puss in the boots. he's a cat from "thshrek." >> you have a [ bleep ] with boots. yeah. yeah. i got that. >> i'm still not getting -- >> fight! fight!
fight! >> yeah, what i do -- >> hey! >> you ruined my art! >> ahh! >> [ bleep ] >> no, it's not. >> i can clean my ass with that tonight. look, look, what i think about it. >> you glitter bombed me. without me even knowing it. >> no, no. >> what are you going to do? come on, jack him up. >> i really do hope that jimmy likes my t-shirt even though captain america ruined it. i know that, you know, jimmy seeps me for the artist that i am. >> on a scale of 1 to 10, i have to say i did a 5 for effort. >> what? i got blue paint on my tooth? oh [ bleep ]. >> jimmy: all right. ladies and gentlemen, here now, live, to present their t-shirt design, the hollywood boulevard avengers. [ cheers and applause ] wow. what a spectacle. hello, avengers.
you've all worked incredibly hard designing your t-shirts. but only one of you will be the winner tonight. we'll begin with you, captain america. reveal your t-shirt design, please. it says "stan lee forever." tell us a little bit about this design and what it represents. >> i did it this way because for italy, because i think it's a great writer, he create family of marvel, you know -- >> jimmy: right. what does the arrow represent? >> the arrow represent, it's in honor of thor. he's not here with us tonight. he's with us tonight. >> jimmy: all right. well, let's move to iron man. thank you, captain america. aaron iron man, let's see your shift. very colorful. very avengers. tell us about the shirt. >> i focused on the captain
america shield star and then i featured my friend hulk and put him right there with the avenger -- >> jimmy: oh, yeah, okay. beautifully done. thank you, iron man. >> thank you. >> jimmy: the hulk. let us see your shirt. if you can, indeed turn it around with the giant fake hands on. oh, no. let me help you, hulk. here we go. all right. here we go. all right. all right, hulk. tell us about your design. what were you thinking? and what -- >> well, jimmy -- >> jimmy: yes? >> well -- i don't know what i was doing. i just was feeding off everybody else's energy. >> jimmy: i see. >> and i got kind of creative. so, if you know what a caution sign looks like, i tried to make that. >> jimmy: yes, yes. you --
>> but as you can see, i can't do anything with these hands. >> jimmy: all right, all right, thank you. you did a good job despite the loss of your hands. spongebob. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i'm not sure how you got into this group, but -- >> me neither, jimmy. >> jimmy: go ahead and reveal your t-shirt design. i see you are cleaned your tooth. that's good news. tell us about it. >> it was supposed to be like in orbit, space power with all the superheros get their muscles and all the powers from the gamma rays and it's for all the astro moments that we have on planet earth, so that way we can see different colors from our own eyes and views that brings all the -- >> jimmy: so, you are saying a lot of thought went into that finger painting mess. >> sure did, jimmy. >> jimmy: thank you, spongebob. and finally, chewbacca. chewbacca, show us what you got. >> ah, it's a t-shirt.
>> jimmy: what happened there? we saw in the tape that you and captain america had some issues. >> yeah. he -- he ruined it, but -- >> jimmy: why did you do that, captain america? >> i don't know. it looks better that way. now he's got a big piece of fun. everybody love it. >> jimmy: do you feel that captain america is a little bit of a bully, chewbacca? >> ah -- i mean, if i wanted to, i guess i could, like, claim animal abuse. >> jimmy: yeah. kind of, yeah. >> but technically, i'm not, like, a animal. >> jimmy: no, technically you're not an animal. >> maybe if i got a dumb worker, you could, like, fool them. >> jimmy: okay, thank you, again. i'm glad you guys are able to work this out. all right. avengers, i want to thank you for your designs, but as i said, there can only be one winner, and that winner tonight is -- i'm going with spongebob. spongebob, congratulations! >> yay!
>> jimmy: congratulations. anyone you'd like to thank, spongebob? [ applause ] spongebob? all right, there they are. the avengers, everybody. thank you, thank you all. close them up. it's starting to smell in here.

[ applause ] >> jimmy: yeah. i -- i heard a story, and it's a crazy story and it sounds like one of those stories that was made up, but i want to ask you about it. your band, you guys were contacted by the olympic committee, the summer olympics are gg to be in lob london, is this true? >> it could only happen in britain. we are so organized. we got an e-mail, requesting could keith moon attend the opening ceremony. and our manager sent an e-mail back saying, well, actually, he currently resides in golden green crematorium, where he's
been for the last 35 years. maybe if you've got a round table, some glasses, he might be able to get there -- >> jimmy: have a seance to bring him back? >> yeah. >> jimmy: nice. well, tupac came back. in those days -- was keith the one in charge of destroying the hotel rooms? >> well, he -- actually, he wasn't in charge. he was greatly egged on by mr. townshend. >> jimmy: i see. >> pete used to light the fuse. they were partners in crime and -- >> jimmy: and why destroy hotel rooms? >> well, if you've been on the road for month after month after month, they become extremely boring. [ laughter ] i mean, and you run out of fun to have. and then, you know, it gets out of hand and, of course, let's have some fresh air in here. >> jimmy: you run out of fun to
have. you were banned from a lot of hotels. are the -- >> we once got banned from every hotel in new york. how do you do that? how did we do that? >> jimmy: that's impressive. >> that's a lot of hotels. >> jimmy: are there any that you are still banned from? >> no, no. actually, the truth is, they actually quite liked us because we used to pay the damage. >> jimmy: you did? >> in cash. >> jimmy: in cash? >> yeah. so, of course, we pay in cash and they claim insurance and it was -- welcome back, mr. moon! >> jimmy: that's nice. you really are going around the country remodeling. >> there was a hotel in new york where we used to say, they used to, when they knew we were coming, they used to put keith in the room they wanted decorated. >> jimmy: we have a show here called "extreme home makeover" that does the similar thing. he was like their ty pennington. >> that's true. >> jimmy: i want to talk about the work you've been doing in
england and now here with the teenage cancer trust. these are -- tell us about it. >> it's my other passion in life, because without teenagers, the support of teenagers, basically, the support of teenagers built the music business as we know it today. and i've got involved in a thing that supports teenagers with cancer, because it amazes me that the medical profession and hospital organizations, they've got very well catered for churn and very well caters f ed for as but there is very little, in fact, almost nothing, for teenagers. i mean, the ages of 12 to 25, we're going to 25. and, of course, when teenagers get cancer, they've got really a different set of problems than any other age group. they are going through enormous changes psychologically. the cancers they get are much more aggressive. they tend to get late diagnosis, because they're playing sports and all that kind of stuff.
they get the real fuzzy end of the lollipop. and so, what i do and what we've done in england for the last 25 years, we build hospital wards -- which we call them in england, over here, i don't know what you call them, units, your system is very different than ours. but we build them specifically for teenagers, so they can be together and not have their life interrupted, so they can continue their schooling, they can all mix, they run the way it runs and they can have mtv all night, they can do what they want. they can wake up from having a brain tumor removed and not have two clowns, one with a ukulele, one with spoons, at the end of the bed with a baby screaming next door, which actually happens, or even worse, a jer next to you. this is what we do. >> jimmy: this is the benefit concert you did, paul mccartney
was with you there at that concert. have you guys been on stage together before? >> oh, yeah. we did live aid -- >> jimmy: oh, live aid, yeah, right. >> that was a long time ago. >> jimmy: it's so great to have you here. you are going to sing for us, i understand? >> yeah, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: the ucla daltrey/townshend teen & young adult cancer program will open soon here in los angeles. they are expanding all around the country, so go and support them. we'll be back with music from roger daltrey. ♪
