Why cut it into triangles,
00:02
when I look so good just sittin' on it?
00:04
(classical music)
00:08
Cut huh? (light music)
00:10
Triangles?
00:11
Let me think about that.
00:12
Uh. Um.
00:14
I don't think I've ever cut into a watermelon before.
00:16
I don't eat watermelon.
00:18
I'm not sure which knife to use.
00:22
I like the way this looks.
00:24
Ah.
00:26
Oh my god.
00:27
I've watched a lot of Gallagher.
00:29
(laughing)
00:31
Jesus Christ.
00:35
Oh hell yeah.
00:37
That sounded so nice.
00:38
I have the feeling that this is what surgery sounds like.
00:41
Or like a C-Section.
00:45
So clearly, I can not cut a straight line.
00:48
Not quite sure what to do here.
00:51
Let's just try it this way.
00:53
Is this what you do?
00:54
Probably not.
00:57
Oop, no.
00:59
Oh god.
01:03
Wait a second.
01:06
Does this actually work?
01:10
Ooh, that's really hard, though.
01:15
Why is this not happening?
01:17
(growling)
01:18
(laughing)
01:22
Oh.
01:24
I don't really know what I'm doing.
01:25
This is why I buy pre-cut melon.
01:29
Okay.
01:29
I got this.
01:30
Let's cut this watermelon up.
01:32
I'm gonna use the knife.
01:33
I'm gonna cut it in half.
01:38
So now I'm going to cut this one in half.
01:44
I'm gonna cut it again.
01:47
Then I cut it like this.
01:57
Here's your triangle.
01:59
Not brain surgery, people.
02:00
It's just a watermelon.
02:01
Somebody's going to watch me do this,
02:04
and if I do this right or if I do this wrong,
02:06
they're going to comment on it and say,
02:08
he doesn't know how to make a watermelon into triangles,
02:12
and no, I don't.
02:16
So you're welcome.
02:18
(camera film rolling)
02:22
This is how you cut a watermelon into triangles.
02:24
I just do it with a knife.
02:25
Simple, simple chef knife.
02:27
With watermelons, it's round,
02:28
so you wanna cut the ends off so you can get
02:29
to a flat surface.
02:30
This way, it's steady on your board,
02:32
and you're not gonna cut yourself or hurt yourself.
02:34
And then what I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna cut it in half.
02:36
Straight down the middle, okay?
02:38
Turn it around.
02:42
Okay, and then we cut it from half to quarters.
02:48
Okay, and then you just cut 'em into triangles.
02:50
Super super simple.
02:55
And that's how you cut a watermelon to perfect triangles.
02:58
Boo yeah. (triumphant orchestral music)
02:59
Hey.
03:08
Mm.
03:09
Mm.
03:12
This is a parallelogram.
03:16
But we can make it into a triangle,
03:19
if we're obsessed with aesthetics, which I'm not.
