John Cena Spent Seven Ridiculous Minutes in a Closet with Mike O’Brien

7 Minutes in Heaven, the Web series from former Saturday Night Live writer Mike O’Brien, has a simple and ingenious premise: O’Brien gets into a closet with a comedian for seven minutes (OK, this video is only four minutes), asks a bunch of weird questions, and does a few loopy roleplays. Series highlights have included Kristen Wiig and Tina Fey, but O’Brien’s latest guest, John Cena, of wrestling and Trainwreck fame, gave them a run for their money.

Along with trying on an impressive array of hats, O’Brien and Cena discussed whether or not Cena should start working out, his role in Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Sisters, and his adolescence—which Cena said, intriguingly, was full of “the usual haberdashery.”
