“You don’t seem to be having a great time,” Kimmel said as the audience laughed. “You actually seem to be scared and plugging your ears.”
But David was able to provide a pretty simple explanation.
“It was very noisy,” he told Kimmel.
Given the 74-year-old’s disinterest in the fashion world, it’s understandable that the loud music was perhaps out of his comfort zone.
“Let me explain how I wound up there,” David added. “My friend’s fiance is a great fashion designer, her name is STAUD (Sarah Staudinger, the founder of the LA-based brand), she’s a wonderful gal. He said to me that my presence would be helpful. I said, ‘My presence has never been helpful anywhere. Wherever I am, it’s wrong. Everything is better if I’m not there. Believe me’. So I showed up.”
He continued: “But, you know, me and a fashion show, it’s a little out of place. It was very loud music and that’s why I was covering my ears.”
