The boys ’round here don’t really eat sushi, which is why Jimmy Fallon basically had to force Blake Shelton to try some.
The talk show host took Shelton to Nobu, a very fancy Japanese restaurant, to try some sake (rice wine), pickled ginger, sushi, sashimi and more. At certain points during the bit, the country singer looked visibly pained and more than a little grossed out. Shelton didn’t care for sake (which he said tasted like “easter egg coloring”) or the ginger (“the texture of pre-chewed gum”).
And just wait until you watch him try the raw fish:
“That right there looks like a human tongue!” Shelton said before snapping up a piece of tuna with his chopsticks fastened with a blue helper. “The texture is Play-Doh, but I will say this to you right now, man to man, I like that. I like how that tasted.”
The whole video is hilarious, but it’s even funnier when Fallon nearly chickened out about eating a dish that Shelton devoured before him. We sort of have a feeling Gwen Stefani’s boyfriend won’t be going back for seconds.
