Blake Shelton is a man of many talents. The country singer turned coach on “The Voice” sells himself so well on the reality singing competition that Ellen DeGeneres thought up a new game to play with the singer when he stopped by her show recently. During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the host explained a new game she had created for the singer to participate in called “Pitch-Please.”
“Every week on ‘The Voice’ you have to sell yourself to get someone to go on your team,” Ellen tells Blake. “We thought you were so good at selling yourself, that you could sell anything. You’re going to try to sell a product like on QVC but you won’t know what it is. The audience will.”
Ellen then shares what Blake will be trying to sell by making the item visible to her studio audience. They erupt into laughter at the first sight of a leopard man thong.
“I don’t know what it is but it’s awkward already,” Blake admits after hearing the laughs.
Ellen then goes on to ask a series of questions about the product, including how much he’d pay for it and what other celebrities besides Blake would enjoy something like it? He prices the vibrantly printed underwear at $15 and reasons Mariah Carey and Britney Spears would enjoy it. Ellen then asks if he would wear the product for any specific occasion.
“It feels formal,” he says as the audience erupts into laughter once again. “What is this? What are you doing to me?”
The game gets better and better as Ellen continues her line of questioning. How frequent would Blake wash this product and whether there are any safety precautions bring about the most laughter from the audience.
“You don’t want it to shrink,” Blake reasons. “I said something that made sense didn’t I? I would say, you would use it a couple of times first [before washing]. You wouldn’t want to put it near an open flame,” he adds.
Once the man thong is revealed to Blake, he shakes his head in embarrassment.
“This is the worst game. Did I win anything?” he asks. He didn’t but the audience sure did enjoy watching him play. Watch it all unfold in the video below.
