You’ve never heard Deuteronomy 21:18 from the Old Testament sound like this.
Scarlett Johansson talks seductively as she reads passages from the Bible for comedian Mike O’Brien‘s latest comedy record Tasty Radio.
“If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son his father and mother shall bring him to the elders at the gate of his town…They shall say to the elders this son of ours is stubborn and rebellious…Then all the men of this town shall stone him to death,” the actress recites in a sultry tone.
For the track titled “Sexy Bible,” Johansson, 30, reads passages from the Book of Deuteronomy on WSEX, Sexy Talk Radio with the help of O’Brien.
“I wasn’t sure what the comedic take would be when I first became obsessed with Deuteronomy, but I knew a female should be delivering most of it,” the former Saturday Night Live cast member told Rolling Stone.
“Because a lot of the quotes are very misogynistic and who wants to hear a guy make fun of that. I was so thrilled that Scarlett said she’d do it.”
O’Brien recruited his former SNL cast mates Cecily Strong as well as alums Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, and Seth Meyers.
Tasty Radio is scheduled for an Oct. 30 release.[soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/229635802" params="visual=true&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false" width="100%" height="450" iframe="true" /]
