Maya Rudolph’s ‘Hot Ones’ clip recently went viral, and fans were surprised that it was not an actual appearance from the popular web series.
‘Hot Ones’ is a show wherein celebrities are interviewed while they eat chicken wings that are increasingly spicy. However, Rudolph’s clip was actually a skit from her TV show entitled ‘Loot,’ which is an Apple TV+ series.
The 49-year-old actress plays the role of Molly Novak. Her character’s rich tech husband John (Adam Scott) publicly cheats on her, which leads to a humiliating public divorce.
The viral clip has been viewed for over 7 million times, and a lot of people are hyping about it online!
I’m screaming I thought Maya Rudolph was actually on hot ones but it’s her character from LOOT https://t.co/d9SOHnVJGV

In the video, Rudolph was struggling to handle the spice of the chicken wings, and as a result, she told ‘Hot Ones’ host Sean Evans, “I need you to do me a favor. I need you to shut the f**k up.”
Molly Novak (Rudolph) also cursed her ex-husband (Adam Scott) while trying to eat the spicy chicken wings, and it was truly hilarious!
