On Tuesday’s The Jim Jefferies Show, the host welcomed a new weatherman to the show, played by Seth Rogen. The bit was previously done by Brad Pitt, and his common theme was our planet’s impending death due to climate change. Right off the bat, though, it was clear that Rogen’s weatherman would bring a little more positivity.
“Cole Kleen’s the name, and boy hasn’t it been a hell of a year,” Rogen said, to introduce the character. “The best year of weather ever in Earth’s history.”
It turns out the new weatherman came with a bit of an agenda, because he works for the show’s new fake sponsor: Organic Industrial Liquids, aka OIL. So his main focus was getting Jefferies and the audience onboard with all things oil.
“Did you know birds love oil spills? Because it means they get a warm dish soap bath,” Rogen said. “And this one’s very neat: Once there’s enough plastic in the ocean, we’ll be able to walk to Europe!”
Eventually — after Rogen’s character threatened to pull the fake sponsor’s fake funding from the show — Jefferies came around on the idea of oil not being so bad for the planet after all.
“ I think that — if oil is so bad, why would they put it on salads?” Jefferies said. “You can’t make electricity from the sun; it’s too far away.”
