David Ortiz Talks Kenan Thompson’s Big Papi Impression with Seth Meyers

The Red Sox star also brought some snacks for the Late Night host.

As the David Ortiz farewell tour comes to a close, the Red Sox slugger decided to pay a visit to Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday night.

The host and noted Boston sports fan chatted with Ortiz about a variety of topics, including Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson’s hilarious Big Papi impression. Although he didn’t say a lot, his laughter and huge smile during the discussion is pretty much proof that Ortiz is a big fan of the tribute.

Big Papi also revealed an interesting fact about his Twitter response to Thompson’s bit on the Red Sox star opening a gym for iguanas. Ortiz admitted he was a bit scared while taking the photo with the lizard.

“That was the first time I had ever seen an iguana in my life ever,” Ortiz said. “I was playing it kind of cool, but I was scared.”

Big Papi added that he was more scared of the lizard than his life-sized Lego statue tribute.

In addition to having a laugh over Thompson’s impression, Ortiz brought some of his Big Papi snacks for Meyers to munch on. Of course, the Red Sox star had to take a few bites as well.

“I can’t help it,” Ortiz joked.
