Less than a month before the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, NBC has begun promoting the awards ceremony. Host Seth Meyers is featured in the first promo video that sees him trying to get aboard a plane with some prohibited items.
"Before you go through that you should know I'm hosting the Emmys, so I have a lot of TV props in there," the funnyman tries to explain to a TSA officer who checks his bag. The TSA officer can't help but give suspicious look at the "Late Night with Seth Meyers" host as he tries to bring such illegal items as guns, alcoholic drink, blue meth and sword which he claims represent "True Detective", "Homeland", "Mad Men" and "Game of Thrones".
The 2014 Emmy Awards will take place August 25 at the Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, California and air live coast-to-coast at 8-11 P.M. ET / 5-8 P.M. PT on NBC.
Meyers said at the TCA summer press tour earlier this month that he wouldn't skewer anyone during his opening monologue, but he intended "to be entertaining for three hours in a very old-school way."
