Awkwafina gets a tour of New York City from the best guides you could ask for: John Mulaney and Nick Kroll. Well, not Mulaney and Kroll specifically. In a video from Cadillac, titled Now That’s a Cardiac, the comedians reprise their characters George St. Geegland and Gil Faizon from the hit Broadway show Oh, Hello. The video is so funny that you will almost forget you are watching a Cadillac ad. As their now-iconic old men characters, the Big Mouth stars take Awkwafina around their favorite spots in the new Cadillac XT4 making jokes along the way. Awkwafina plays the character of Val who is only trying to make a video for her vlog.
Mulaney and Kroll have been playing George St. Geegland and Gil Faizon since the 2000s at comedy clubs and scattered TV appearances, but the characters exploded in popularity with their 2016 Broadway show, Oh, Hello. A taped version of the show was also made for Netflix. The fan-favorite characters are known for their curmudgeonly behavior, turtlenecks, and tendency to say, “Oh, Hello,” in unison.
The two are perfectly paired with Awkwafina. The actress and rapper exploded onto the scene with roles in comedies like Oceans 8 and Crazy Rich Asians and even made her Saturday Night Live debut when she hosted earlier this year.
