“Mad Max: Fury Road” took home six Oscars Sunday night, making it prime fodder for late-night jokes on Monday.
On NBC’s “Late Night,” Seth Meyers plays a very sensible War Boy dubbed Reasonable Max, who smartly thinks that wasting fuel isn’t the best thing to do when living in a desert wasteland following a nuclear holocaust.
“I don’t want to put a dampener on our trip to Gas Town, but — quick question — do we all have to go?” he asks his bald-headed cohorts.
“It feels a little silly and irresponsible that whenever we go to get gas,” he said, “we drive a fleet of muscle cars that literally shoot out fire.”
Other buzzkills from Meyers’ character related to the guitar bursting into flames when it was played, painting their bodies white and a proposal to “chant 50 percent less.”
A far more eco-friendly option than the bulky War Rigs is Meyers’ wind-board, he tells them, before getting down to the nitty gritty of recycling.
“Late Night With Seth Meyers” airs at 12:35 p.m. on NBC.
