Interviewer: What’s one of the New York social peccadillos you’d like to see corrected?
Seth: I will say it’s very interesting working at 30 Rock during the holidays, because there are so many tourists there. New Yorkers get desensitized to not just the tree, but the scope and size of the buildings. But it’s important for us, as New Yorkers, to recognize that tourists’ minds are blown. It’s not their fault they’re walking around with their heads up.
Interviewer: That’s a very generous piece of constructive criticism.
Seth: Look, I am aware I’m being polite and not true to myself. I know that I’m a fucking monster when I see them. I just know that I can’t change, and so I think it’d be better if everybody else did.
Interviewer: Now that you and Stefon have smooched publicly, will it be weird between you two?
Seth: You have to realize America is only seeing my relationship with Stefon from the waist up. For them, the kiss was a big deal; for us, it was nothing. That was some Jane Austen shit compared to what’s going on underneath the desk.
