EP. 315 — Ambulance LIVE! (w/ Roxane Gay)

Action movie junkie Roxane Gay (Bad Feminist) joins the HDTGM crew to break down all the BAYHEM in 2022’s Ambulance starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Eiza González, and Michael Bay’s dog Nitro. LIVE from Largo in LA, they discuss surgery performed with a hairclip via Facetime, the idiotic green paint ambulance switcheroo, and the Christopher Cross musical interlude. Plus, they ask important questions like, “Does Jake Gyllenhaal’s character work at Jay Leno’s Garage?”

Paul Scheer [00:00:00] Explosions, drone shots, a big dog and a very impaled child. Michael Bay is back, baby. We saw Ambulance. So you know what that means.  Intro Song [00:00:31] [Music]  Paul Scheer [00:01:15] We are here live at Largo at the Coronet, our home in Los Angeles, and the home of this film. Ambulance or Ambula-ance. I don’t know how you’re supposed to pronounce it, but this movie is Los Angeles. This is what it’s like on a day and day out basis. Vendors in the street being run over constantly. All these confetti vendors just killed willy nilly. This movie came out just a little while ago in 2022. And if you want to know what it’s about, if you feel like you want a little refresher, here it is. Robbery goes bad, escapes in ambulance. That’s it. There’s a lot more going on. But that’s all you need to know is Michael Bay was like, how about I take that 45 minutes and go, I’ll double it. And that’s what he did. 2 hours
