Look, I get it. You’re either down with the BDE emanating from Pete Davidson or you find him insufferable and kinda gross. There’s very little middle ground. And this video isn’t going to change anyone’s minds. It’s just Pete on a tiny bike, often in unnerving closeup, being asked a series of deep(ish) questions by fashion designer Alexander Wang. If you really don’t want to watch you can read a transcript below.
Saddest question and answer, though? “Are we alone in the universe?” to which Pete answers: “I am”
Breaks your damn heart.
Which talent would you most like to have?
I wish I had any talent, really. I don’t think being “a little off” is a talent.
Do you think a parallel universe exists?
Yeah, I think a parallel universe exists, and I think I’m in that one.
What is your greatest extravagance?
My greatest extravagance? Is that, like, a big purchase?
Yeah, or what you indulge in.
I guess weed?
How do we know if we’re doing the right thing?
If it doesn’t feel good, then you’re doing the right thing.
Which phrases or words do you most overuse?
“Sick,” “dope,” “word,” “yo,” “dafuck”. Stuff like that.
Are we alone in the universe?
What is your current state of mind?
I think it’s pretty funny that I’m doing this. I think that’s pretty funny, that I’m a super-duper-model. [Laughs] That’s a funny term: “super-duper-model”.
What is your most treasured possession?
My most treasured possession is my dad’s wedding ring and necklace. Yeah… sad. [Laughs]
On what occasion do you lie?
I don’t lie, unless it’s, like, to protect [laughing] the other person’s feelings.
What is your motto?
My motto is, um… “All the stuff that happens to me, it couldn’t happen to a better guy. Nobody deserves it more than me.”
How do you know you are not dreaming right now?
How do I know I’m not dreaming right now?… I don’t know, Alex. [Laughs]
