>> jimmy: very nice. welcome at a time show, i'm jimmy. i'm host. thank you for watching. thanks for coming. welcome to hollywood. and wig news around here, it rained today. there was rain and even hail this morning. either that or justin bieber was pelting our houses with tiny little eggs. but something was happening and i'm glad you made it inside safely. i made a crazy video i want to show you. there's an app called masquerade. it turns your face into other people's faces. one of the people you can turn into is me. you can swap faces with the person next to you. so it was my wife's birthday saturday and my 19-month-old daughter jayne and i were making a video for her. i was making the video, jayne was just sitting there. when you see my daughter you'll agree she looks just like me. >> hello. >> hello. >> hello hello.
hi. anawonowono. hi. >> happy birthday. >> happy yawallay. >> happy birthday to? >> mama. >> jimmy: there you go. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: these are the kinds of things our parents never had the opportunity to do with us. because we didn't -- never mind. anyway. there are more caucuses and primaries over the weekend. trump and cruz each won two states. rubio won puerto rico. bernie sanders won a few states. hillary clinton won big in louisiana. everyone went home a win letter just like soccer camp. even john kasich got a serf participation. he also got a high-profile endorsement from arnold schwarzenegger. arnold officially endorsed john kasich yesterday. or maybe he endorsed a chicken
quesadilla, i have no idea. i really don't know what he's saying. he can't even say "state of california." he endorsed case and i can gave him a hug, looked like he could pop his head off. this is particularly interesting. basically governor kasich is hoping to beat the former host of "the apprentice" with help from the current host of "the apprentice," arnold schwarzenegger. this is such a strange election. i personally am waiting to see who dolph lundgren endorses before i make my decision. last week we had super tuesday. on tuesday. this morning i turn on cnn to find out they're calling tomorrow super tuesday 2. there can't be a super tuesday 2. tuesday 2 already has a name, it's wednesday. super tuesday 2. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: now they're just screwing with me. this comes from the minnesota
state high school hockey tournament where the captain of the team that won delivered what i think is an mvp-caliber postgame interview. >> yeah, you know, we had a few odd man rush in the first period which was not good for us. i mean, everyone had their nerves going, everything like that. which we were glad too keep them to that, everything like that. in the locker room just talked about what we need to face and everything like that. stick to the game plan. get back to it and everything like that. so just paid off, stick to the game plan, you know. stiffing up defense, everything like that. just everything like that. >> you moving on to the semifinals. your uncle stu played awhile back, 20 years ago, with alexandria. did you get advice from him coming into the tournament? >> yes, a long text from him saying don't let the atmosphere get your nerves shaken up and everything like that. just play your game. which is what i tried to do out here and everything like that. yeah, definitely helped from him and everything like that.
>> jimmy: that's a new one. i didn't know about "everything like that." i never heard that one before. i hope to hear more of it in the future. but meanwhile, while the captain of that hockey team was unleashing a new interview phrase on the world, on saturday our friend flavor flav just stopped by the weather map on a local station in salt lake city, specifically to keep one of the classics alive. >> check this out. right over here you see right there, salt lake city, we've got 56 degrees. you know what i'm saying? also we going to take it all the way right here, you know what i'm saying, west valley? 57 degrees right here in west valley. you, let me tell you all something. you know weather's coming, it's going to be kind of good today, you know what i'm saying? this is what we're looking at today, you know what i'm saying? right over here, you know what i'm saying, over here, echo. let's go to echo, know what i'm saying? hello, hello, you heard the echo, right? >> jimmy: i think that's elko. i did hear the echo. wait, hold on, there's more.
>> let me be here, you know what i'm saying, i'm not really a weather person, i'm a rapper, you know what i'm saying? but thank you, fox, you know, for letting me come on this morning, you know what i'm saying. big shout-out to my brother ronnie, you know what i'm saying, athletic director, west high school. we going to be back, you know what i'm saying? >> jimmy: there you go. he is a multi-talented performer, you know he is. how the hell did flavor flav wind up in u.s. utah in the first place? maybe his travel agent didn't know what he was saying. something of note for those single and looking to mate, tinder is testing out what they call a share button. have you seen this? if you see someone on tinder who you think might be right for someone you know, you can sent their profile and then your friend can then swipe right for yes or left for no, making you the matchmaker, or setting up a threesome, i don't know. tinder is always coming up with
new and exciting ways to force us to have sex with each other. isn't the point of being on tinder is you don't have to get set up? now that they have this, how long before your mom gets on it and ruins it for you? i swiped you right, honey, i think you're going to -- meanwhile. tinder was designed to get relationships started. there's another new service to help you break up. it's called the breakup shop. it's a real company. you can hire them to send a breakup text or make a breakup phone call. a text is $10. a phone call is $29. why you wouldn't just do this yourself, i have no idea. but they'll also send a card that smells like poop if you prefer something old fashioned. or they'll send a letter. this is one of the letters they'll send on your behalf. dear stephanie. i guess you put the person's name in. i know what you and gary did at the cottage last weekend. norm showed me the whole video and made me sick, how could you. next time you want to cheat on someone, at least do it in private. enjoy being single.
now i'm dying to know what gary and stephanie did at the cottage. the service is being described as uber for breakups. which makes no sense. because especially uber is already in the breakup business. >> say good-bye with uber ex. drop a pin on your significant other and our drivers do the rest. >> auburnri? >> auburnri, 338 bonaventure. >> i'm sorry to tell you, but you're not. ♪ ♪ i could hardly believe it when i heard the news today ♪ >> what's going on? >> it's not you, it's steven. he's breaking up with you. >> all uber ex drivers have completed a three-hour uber university course in compassi compassionate caring. ♪ how am i supposed to live without you ♪
>> please take one. >> was i not good enough for him? >> my country, we say it two stripes who come together to make zebra. >> i don't know what you're saying. >> here. eat ice cream. >> thank you. >> you know, my country say, when donkey kicks you, you ride on the donkey. i don't know, nothing is working. what's wrong? please don't cry. >> uber ex. and for even lower fares try uber ex pool. uner ex. because people are monsters. >> jimmy: we have to get to break. when we come back we'll delve into tonight's bachelor women tell-all and john legend bids farewell to "downton abbey" so stick around, we'll be right back.

stuff. the song that starts the show is "black skinhead" by kanye. driving beat with the breathing and the energy. a guy's running through the woods so it makes sense that's happening at the same time the music. >> jimmy: when i was watching i thought my computer -- i thought my itunes was playing. i was like, this can't -- what's going on? i was trying to figure out what was happening. >> it works if you give it a chance. >> jimmy: it works very well. it took me 10 seconds to figure out what the hell was going on. was that the original plan? >> that was always the plan. that was in the first script that i read, "black skinhead" would play at the opening from the show. >> jimmy: did you make that happen? >> i had to make a call. and it has to get cleared by all the writers. which is kanye and several other people. >> jimmy: then kanye calls those guys and says, this is for john, clear the damn thing. >> they get paid, you know. it's a transaction goes on. >> jimmy: i see. >> him approving it was still very generous. >> jimmy: your song became the most popular wedding song. >> a big wedding song.
