If anyone knows how many Chili’s chicken fingers profits from Super Bowl tickets can buy, it’s Kenan Thompson.
Thompson — the 40-year-old “Saturday Night Live” star who found fame on kids sketch-comedy show “All That” and his own spin-off, “Kenan and Kel” alongside Kel Mitchell — told Jimmy Fallon in a “Tonight Show” interview on Wednesday night that when the two were treated to Super Bowl tickets, the day took a turn before kickoff.
“I got tickets to go one time, when I was young, these people gave me and Kel tickets to the Super Bowl,” he recalled, mentioning that he was gifted the tickets by “Smickelodeon,” jokingly disguising the real name of the kids’ network, Nickelodeon, that they starred on. “We were living in LA and [the game] was in San Diego, they sent us down in this limousine.”
But practical thinking got the best of the young star before heading into the stadium.
“My debit card game and my money was funny so I didn’t have any money on me at the time,” he explained. “I was just young and I didn’t know how to juggle my finances and it didn’t make any sense to me to go to the Super Bowl with no money and not be able to buy anything.”
So the two young stars entertained an offer for their two seats, selling them off for $2,500 — what Thompson referred to as “serious bread.”
“We sold our tickets and went to Chili’s and balled out,” he said. “We went to Chili’s and went nuts. Oh my gosh, chicken fingers for everybody.”
Thompson will be heading to this year’s big game where the New England Patriots will face the Los Angeles Rams in Atlanta, but this year, perhaps the Emmy winner will be buying his chicken fingers from a vendor inside the gates instead.
