Pete Davidson reveals he was stoned when he bought a ferry online!

During the premiere of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts in Brooklyn, New York, on Monday night, Pete Davidson shared insights about the decommissioned Staten Island ferry he acquired online alongside his former Saturday Night Live colleague Colin Jost in January 2022.

“I have no idea what’s going on with that thing,” confessed Davidson, 29, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, shaking his head. “Me and Colin were very stoned a year ago and bought a ferry. And we’re figuring it out.”

When asked if there were plans for an after-party on their Staten Island investment, Davidson responded, “Yeah, if it’s not sunk!”

Davidson lends his voice to the character Mirage in the latest installment of the Transformers live-action film series, which began with Michael Bay’s 2007 film of the same title.

“Hopefully it turns into a Transformer and gets the f— out of there so I can stop paying for it!” Davidson jokingly exclaimed to ET during the event, held at the Kings Theatre.

Later, he referred to it as a “windowless van of the sea,” a term he had previously used on SNL’s Weekend Update with Jost. “Yes, it’s very exciting,” sarcastically quipped Jost at the time. “We thought the whole thing through.”

The duo acquired the boat for $280,000 after joining a consortium of investors that won the bid at an auction. Paul Italia, the owner of The Stand comedy club, is also part of the investor group.
