‘Average Andy’ with Lucha VaVOOM

‘Average Andy’ with Lucha VaVOOM


When you see my producer
Andy, one word comes to mind– average. And today, two words will
come to mind– mucho average. [LATIN MUSIC] We sent Andy to
Lucha VaVoom to learn the art of Mexican wrestling. And who knew? He’s a real artist. Enjoy. [THEME MUSIC] (SINGING) He’s an executive
producer on The Ellen Show. He works hard every day. He’s super-duper
awesome at what he does. But he’s average
in every other way. [SPEAKING SPANISH] And I’m Andy. [GRUNTING] Hola. Cómo estás. Andy. What’s up, Andy? Oh, you speak English? Yes. Oh good. Of course. Because this one, not so much. [LAUGHTER] What have we got? Do I go in? Yeah. Try to come in. Let’s see how you do it. I got to get introduced. Ow. OK. Let’s teach you how
to run the ropes. Run the ropes. That’s going to be step
number one for you. OK, run the ropes. Let me put down my agua,
which is water in Spanish. So running the ropes is this. Grab it the other way. Grab it. Yes. [LAUGHTER] I think you’ve got to take
some more manly kind of steps. OK. Manly, OK. I’m a man! You own the ring. I own the ring! Who’s first with
signature moves? What have you got
for a signature move? [GRUNTING] That was fun! [LAUGHTER] He doesn’t want
to let go, though. All right. Wow. Since I’m a taller guy, I take
advantage of my opponents. I normally punish them by
carrying them and doing crazy stuff. OK. Right. I mean, we’re just practicing. Yeah. We’ll be practicing,
and right now– [SLAMMING] –let’s do something
easy, all right? OK, right. [SLAMMING] It doesn’t hurt. No. It’s just easy, simple. Wow. I’m just– I’m waiting for
things to stop spinning a bit, and then we’re
going to continue. OK. I preferred the head
in the ass thing, if we’re going to be honest,
as we review what we’ve done. Wow. Remember, you’ve got to open
your arms and your legs. I need to be caught. You understand that, right? Don’t worry. Are you sure? Yeah. I’m not light. No. I’m not lying to you. Yeah, I’ve got a gut. OK. I’m a man! [GRUNTING, LAUGHTER] Nicely. I got it. Thank you. Nailed it. So I think you’re
ready for the match. What do you think? How do you feel? I didn’t know there was
a match involved, but OK. Well, what are you? Are you going to be a
bad guy or a good guy? I’m going to be whatever
hurts me the least. Yeah. You’re more of a good
guy, like soft guy. So I think you should be– I would say good. I wouldn’t say soft. So I think the match
should be you– And? And Caristico. Yeah. Just wait till you see
this against the baddest girl, Dama Fina– Yeah, all right. –and the one and only, Magno. This is a lot more
than I signed up for. So I know you don’t
understand English. But what I’m saying is, help me. Why is everything a surprise? Literally, every step
of this is a surprise. Hi. Where is the costume? Oh, God. I literally– how long? I mean I’m going to have to
suck my gut in the whole time. [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [LAUGHTER] I don’t feel great
about it either. Trust me. I don’t even have any
words for you, man. I’m just telling you, I
had no say in any of this. You’re in big trouble. I’m going to just wear
these so I can see you. OK? Anyways, Andy. Good luck. Are you going to tell
me what’s happening or– Bye-bye. Bye. Aren’t they supposed
to explain something? [LOUD CHATTER, APPLAUSE] [SPEAKING SPANISH] [APPLAUSE] I’m literally already–
I’ve overheated already. [BELL RINGING] So here comes the creature
from the chrome lagoon, Average Andy. What I like to do is see
the prey before I attack. Nice to see Andy get in
good shape for the match. Got a little junk in the trunks. [CHEERING] Ooh. I hope his family
doesn’t see this, Andy up against the ropes. [GRUNTING] Ow! Average Andy taking a couple
of kicks to the– ooh, trunks. OK! We’re having fun. Andy down with Magno trying
to tag out his partner– I got to go! — to no avail. [CHEERING] You OK in there, Andy? Where’s the oxygen? Caristico getting
worked over by Magno. I’m going to take a moment. [SLAPPING] It’s gotten much more real than
I thought it was going to be. Yeah! Kick her again. Oh, oh, Jesus! [SLAMMING] Dude, finish him! Yeah, yeah. That’s my guy! What? Good. Way to go. Come on, man. I’m going. I feel like we’ve won already. What’s happening now? [GROANING] Oh. Oh, my Lord. [INAUDIBLE] –uno, dos, tres. [BELL RINGING, APPLAUSE] We did it! I’m kidding. [THEME MUSIC] [APPLAUSE] I mean, come on. So when I watched
that this morning, I asked if it hurt you,
and you said it did. It hurt a lot. I mean, a lot of that,
it’s choreographed. But there is stuff– It’s choreographed. But that first drop, which
started the whole thing, I didn’t recover from
for a couple of days. I got a little whiplash. Right, because it seems
like no matter what, you’re still falling
on your back, and you lost your glasses. Yeah. It’s a rough thing. Right. How do your kids feel when
they watch the “Average Andy” segment? They laugh at me. And then they show
it to their friends, and then the
friends laugh at me. Right. And they sing the
“Average Andy” theme song? Constantly around the house. Yeah, it’s a catchy tune. Yeah. No, it feels good. Yeah. It does. Are you able to discipline them? Or do they respect you, or no? No, not at all. [LAUGHTER] So is this your favorite? I said that was my favorite one. What is your favorite
“Average Andy” that you did? I’m going to say
that that’s going to probably be my last one. No. That is not your last one. Do you think that’s
your favorite? What else did you enjoy? Sumo. You liked that? I mean, I don’t– I do it because you enjoy them. Right. And I love that. And I pay you. [LAUGHTER] This is true. Yeah, right. [LAUGHING] So you have to do it. But you get to do exciting
things, like that. You’d never done
something like that. No. I’ve never– What was the show in Vegas
you did, which was amazing? What was the show? Oh, Cirque du Soleil? No. It wasn’t Cirque du Soleil. It was another one. In Vegas– oh, not Channing. Not with Channing–
no, it was the one where you actually grab–
you slap the guy’s crotch. Yeah. That was Cirque. But it’s called something else. Yeah. But it’s a Cirque
du Soleil, where– OK. Let’s not argue. Let’s agree to disagree. OK. And Michael Phelps, you
worked with Michael Phelps. Yeah. We’ve done a lot of them. Yes, Ellen. We’ve done a lot of
humiliation of Andy. [LAUGHTER] I’m just stalling. You’re the one who either
tells me to break or to stall, and I’m trying to fill time. How are we on– We can break now. We’re good? Yeah, it’s plenty. OK. Gracias, Andy. De nada. Hi. I’m Andy. Ellen asked me to remind you
to subscribe to her channel so you can see more
awesome videos, like videos of me getting scared
or saying embarrassing things, like ball peen hammer, and
also some videos of Ellen and other celebrities, if
you’re into that sort of thing. [SHOUTING] [BLEEP] God [BLEEP]
