Lilly Sets Audience Members Up on a Date in Partnership with Starbucks

-Now Valentine’s Day
is coming up. Love is in the air. And I’m sure most of you are
in relationships, right? By a show of hands,
who here is single? Raise your hand.
What? No, no, no, no, no.
That is a big problem that I’m going to take care
of right now. It’s time for a round of
“Starbucks Audience Matchmaker.” [ Cheers and applause ]
♪♪ [ Applause ] Just walk on over here. Raise your hand one more time
if you’re single. Raise your hand for me.
Oh, you’re closest. Why don’t you join me?
Come on up. Give him a round of applause,
round of applause. [ Cheers and applause ]
Can we get a mic? I wanna get a mic.
Let’s get you mic’d, ’cause I like your sweater.
-Thank you. -Here we go, let’s mic him up. Boom, boom, pow.
Perfect, perfect. All right, what is your name,
my friend? -Chris.
-Chris, nice to meet you, Chris. Okay, Chris. Hello. Now, everybody give it up
for Chris. This is a brave thing to do to
come up here. [ Cheers and applause ] So you just — you just
hold tight while I find you a future partner.
-Okay. -Okay, if you’re single,
I want you to stand up. Everyone that’s single,
stand up. Every single person that’s
single. Stand up. Stand up, stand up, stand up.
Perfect. Now, don’t worry, I’m not going
to make fun of you. So, if you’re lying about it,
you can stand. It’s cool, it’s cool.
[ Light laughter ] Before we get into it, Chris,
is your preference men, women, both,
or everything in between? -I like women.
-You like women, okay. If you’re not a woman, sit down.
I’m sorry. This is not for you.
This is not for you. So, my theory on matchmaking is
that people who like the same things
tend to like each other. So, I’m going to ask you a few
questions, and I’m going to find you a match right here
in our audience. Sound good?
-Sounds good. -Okay.
[ Cheers ] This is gonna get spicy. So tell me, what kind of music
are you into? -So this is a little different.
I like classical music. [ Cheers ]
I like a lot of — -Just going to sit down.
Okay, okay. If you don’t like classical
music, sit down. If you like classical music,
stay standing. Okay. All right, a bunch of liars.
[ Laughter ] Now, tell me.
We got some viable options here. What kind of movies
are you into? -I love comedies, gotta laugh.
-Who doesn’t love a comedy? If you like comedy,
stay standing. If you don’t like comedy,
sit down. Okay. All right. All right, now I also feel like
the best match are people who really know
what they want in life. So who here has, like, a really
specific coffee order? I’m talking the person that
says, “Light ice, no whip, extra shot” —
that kind of stuff? If you have that, stay standing. If you don’t, sit down. Everybody? Okay. So many options for you! Now, we’ve narrowed it down. Let me use my matchmaking skills
to pick you someone, all right? [ Inhales ] You!
Join me, please, join me. [ Cheers and applause ]
-Okay, okay. -Give it up.
Take your seat. Thank you, take a seat.
Please join me. Can we get a mic?
Let’s get a mic. Ooh, I like this robe
situation. Let’s get a mic.
Let’s get a mic. Oh, yeah. Are you nervous?
Don’t be nervous. [ Laughter ]
What is your name? -Bacola.
-Bacola. I love the name, I love it. So, here’s what I would
like to do. I want to send you guys
on a date. [ Cheers and applause ]
Yeah. But since I’m the one
setting you up, I want to be able to
keep my eye on you. So, I’m going to send you
on a date in a place you both agree you love,
aka Starbucks, which I just happen to have
on this very stage. Oh, my goodness.
[ Cheers and applause ] Would you look at that? How did this happen?
Let’s walk over here. Look at this — the nice
table over here. -Ladies first.
-Oh, the chivalry! Okay. Did you see that?
The chivalry? That’s right,
look at this thing. I thought it would be exciting
to have a Starbucks built right here on my set. You know, a lot of dates happen
at Starbucks all over the world. And now they’re happening
right here. Plus, there are some
serious advantages to having a date at Starbucks. I mean, if you forget your dates
name, don’t worry because it’s right there
on the cup. You know what I mean?
-Just be like this. -Plus, you only have to commit
to the time it takes to drink a cup of coffee, so you’re not stuck for hours
like a dinner or a movie. You know what I’m talking about,
girl. Mm-hmm. Should we get some drinks?
-Yeah. -Let’s bring out some drinks!
Yes! [ Cheers and applause ]
Now I took the liberty of ordering two coconut milk
lattes, they’re incredible. Plus, I did,
if you don’t mind, I got a cake pop for myself. Thank you very much.
[ Laughter ] You look like you need
a cake pop. There you go.
Enjoy, enjoy. There you go. So, here’s what’s going to
happen. You two talk. Get to know
each other, you know? Break the ice a little bit. I’m going to go over here,
continue the show. But I will check up on you
every once in a while. -Okay.
-Let the magic begin. [ Cheers and applause ] Our guest tonight does it all. He’s an actor, a creator,
a drummer, and your childhood crush. Please welcome the hugely
creative Joseph Gordon-Levitt. ♪♪

-Early childhood education. -That’s so cool.
Early childhood — I have two kids.

-Absolutely. What’s your name?

-Nice to meet you. -Nice to meet you.
Carry on. Carry on. [ Cheers and applause ] She’s just over there
doing her work. I don’t know. -I’m getting a tingly feeling
right here. I think that means it’s time to
check in on our Starbucks lovers one more time.
[ Cheers and applause ] Shall we?
Hey, there. So, tell me. Talk to me. What have you learned
about each other? -Well, this beauty’s
from New York. [ Cheers and applause ] -Okay, contact. Contact touch.
What about you, boo? -Well, he likes to hike,
so that’s really cute. -Mm-hmm. Okay. Well, no pressure to
fall in love or anything. But keep doing that, keep
staring into each other’s eyes. We’ll check in with you
in a little bit. -Okay.
-Hi, Olivia! I care about you!
[ Laughter ] [ Cheers and applause ] -[ Clears throat ]
Yeah, I’m still here. It’s almost the end of your
date, my Starbucks lovers. It’s time to see how Bacola
and Christopher are doing on the road to love. Okay, I have just one question
for you both. I know you’re chit-chatting away
with your big smiles. Will you meet each other again
after this Starbucks date? Bacola, what do you think? -Uh, I think we can maybe
take our coffee to go. -Oh!
[ Audience oohs ] Oh! What do you think, sir? -I’m definitely with that.
Yeah. -Well, then, congratulations
to you.
