Watch Jimmy Fallon and Nicki Minaj Go on a Dinner Date at Red Lobster

They surprise customers at the Times Square location by taking their orders

On Thursday’s episode of the Tonight Show, Nicki Minaj and Jimmy Fallon hopped in a pink stretch limo and rolled down to the Times Square location of Red Lobster for a monster feast full of Cheddar Bay Biscuits, creamy Cajun chicken alfredo, and Lobsteritas.

In the clip, Jimmy explains that he’s never been to Red Lobster before, while Minaj reveals that she’s very familiar with the chain restaurant. “I have worked at a couple of different Red Lobsters and I have gotten fired from all three or four of them,” she tells Fallon. Once the shellfish hits the table, Minaj starts telling the story of how she got axed. “I walked up to this lady, her and her boyfriend had walked out of the restaurant and they took my pen and they didn’t tip me,” Nicki notes. “I walked to the car, I banged on the car window and said ‘Give me my pen!’” Minaj says that after flipping the bird at the customers, her manager fired her on the spot. At the end of their meal, Fallon and Minaj put on uniforms and start serving some unsuspecting customers. And once their shift is over, Fallon gives Minaj a gift card, a giant basket of biscuits, and — to signal her Red Lobster redemption — a brand new pen.

It’s unclear if this is just a random chain restaurant-themed comedy bit or an elaborate ad for Red Lobster, but either way, it’s still an entertaining video (though perhaps not quite as funny as Conan’s visit to Olive Garden from a few months ago).
