Now, uh, I don't knowif you've noticed,
but in recent years there's beenan explosion in music festivals.
Uh, Coachella, Bonnaroo,
South by Southwestand, my favorite of all,
uh, Keyboard Catstock.
As anyone in financewill tell you,
when anything gets too big
that means soonit's probably gonna fail.
And this weekendthat's exactly what happened.
Thousands of dollarsdown the drain
after a music festivalin the Bahamas
promising luxury accommodations
apparently descends into chaos.
REPORTER: It was not the opulent experience they were promised
for tickets that went for reportedly
as much as $12,000.
REPORTER 2: The expectation: luxurious accommodations.
The reality: more like a disaster relief campsite.
A secluded private island getaway?
Nope, just minutes away from a Sandals resort
on Great Exuma, Bahamas. And the gourmet meals
provided by celebrity caterer Stephen Starr
exchanged for these plain cheese sandwiches and salad
after the chef backed out.
WOMAN: We had no electricity, there was no showers,
there was no bathrooms,
there was no, like,running water.
Man, white people love camping
unless it's a surprise.
No, because if you had invitedall those people into the woods,
they'd be like,"It was so fun and so primal,
just getting every...everything away from me."
Like, I feel-I feel badfor-for these people, you know?
I only wish there was a wayfor them to know that this party
was going to be a disaster.
Like, I-I just...
I wish there was a clue,any clue at all.
REPORTER: One of the festival's organizers, who had promised
two weekends in paradise, was the rapper Ja Rule.
The event's cofounder Ja Rulesays it's not his fault
but that he's deeply sorry.
You see, this is whyeveryone needs black friends.
Because if you hadtold your black friends
you were you goingto a Ja Rule party on an island,
they would have been like,"Yo, who's throwing that party?
"Ja Rule." They'd be like,"(bleep), we ain't seen Ja Rule
"in a decade, man.
Save your cash for brunch."
The worst thing is, Ja Rulecouldn't be reached for comment
because he's not always therewhen you call.
And, uh, look, I know...I know a lot of people
feel robbed,but here's my suggestion.
Just think of this whole ordeal
as a really immersiverefugee experience, you know?
Don't get mad, get woke.
I bet everyone on that islandnow has a totally different view
of the crisisin the Middle East.
Now they'll be like, "Man, wegot to help those Syrians, dude.
"Remember whenwe were refugees, man?
Those were somerough minutes, man."
For more on what happenedthis weekend,
please welcome my good friendNeal Brennan, everybody.
-What's up, buddy?-What's up, Neal?
So, uh, look, Neal,we all know what happened.
The big question is:how did this happen?
More-more importantly,why did this happen?
I'll tell you why.
This is a classic caseof not staying in your lane.
It's Ja Rule the musician,
not Ja Rulethe concert promoter.
Dude, stick to what peoplelike you for:
taking your shirt offand growl-singing at Ashanti.
No... No, but Neal, Neal,come on, I-I disagree.
Shouldn't Ja Rulebe encouraged to, you know,
step out of his comfort zoneand spread his wings?
No. No wings.
Because let me show youwhat happens.
This is Ja Rulein his comfort zone.
And this is Ja Ruleoutside his comfort zone.
You know what's outsideyour comfort zone, Trevor?
The danger zone.
In fact, the very idea
of leaving your comfort zoneis stupid.
If I go in for surgery
I don't want the guywith the scalpel to say,
"Up until this morningI was a roofer.
"But I decidedto get out of my comfort zone
and, well, here we are."
All right, look, Neal,that's-that's fair.
But you've to give peoplelike Ja Rule credit
for believing in themselves.
No. No, I don't.
That's the problemwith this whole country:
too many peoplebelieving in themselves.
Example: Kyrie Irving, all-starpoint guard for the Cavs
and now, apparently,part-time geographer.
REPORTER: One of the big stories out of All-Star Weekend
is the Cavs star Kyrie Irving
believes that the Earth is flat.
Despite years of science,
Kyrie honestly believes that the Earth is not round.
Kyrie, here's the deal:
you don't talk about science,
and we won't let Bill Nyeinto the dunk contest.
And I get it, celebritiesare good-looking and talented,
but, remember,you may not be as great
as the characters you play.
For instance,Harrison Ford flying
the-the Millennium Falcon, comfort zone.
Harrison Ford flyingan actual plane, danger zone.
Bill O'Reilly tellingFox viewers what he wants,
comfort zone. Bill O'Reillytelling an individual woman
what he wants, danger zone.
And it doesn't stopwith people--
this goes for everything.Stay in your lane.
Drugstores sellingpharmaceuticals, comfort zone.
Drugstores selling sushi?Danger zone.
Nobody needs you to sell sushi.
I don't want to buy sushiwhere I buy my lube.
Neal, uh, look,
I-I think you're being negativeabout this whole thing, right?
I thinkwe should encourage people
to step outof their comfort zone.
Because, I mean,let's be honest,
what's the worstthat could happen?
I don't know, Trevor.
I can think of one guy whostepped out of his comfort zone.
(cheering and applause)
And now we're allin the danger zone.
My friend Neal Brennan,everyone!
