Ice-T, a man who has played a New York City cop for years on Law & Order: SVU, insisted a few weeks ago that he’d never eaten a bagel nor drank a cup of coffee. The coffee I could understand; his name is Ice-T, after all. But the bagel? Who’s never eaten a bagel? It turns out that it could’ve all been a stunt for a dating app.
A video was released this week of the moment we’ve all been waiting for: Ice-T finally eating a coffee and drinking coffee. Ice-T drank his coffee black, something a coffee virgin should never do, and wasn’t a fan, describing it like “water…with another taste kicked in later.” Ice-T tried a plain bagel with cream cheese, and said it felt like he ate a loaf of bread. He was then given a bagel with lox, which he claims one of his “Jewish homeboys” informed him was a classic way to eat a bagel.
After Ice-T was done with allegedly breaking his coffee and bagel cherry, he pulled back the curtain and admitted the real reason why he was there. He was there for the commercial for the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel, which you may know from Shark Tank. What are the chances that a dating app called Coffee Meets Bagel exists in the same world with a celebrity who has never tried either and will accept money for an endorsement? I’m not calling Ice-T a liar, but I am saying someone should hook his stomach up to a lie detector test.
