Pete Davidson joked that the Ferry he bought with Colin Jost will be a “lifetime problem”.
The 29-year-old former ‘SNL’ star and writer for NBC’s late-night comedy show, 41, decided to buy the Staten Island Ferry last year on a whim, and now they have major plans to turn it into a multi-use venue docked at New York and Miami in the future.
Appearing on the ‘Family Trips with the Meyers Brothers’ podcast, Pete revealed: “We just built all the plans, and we asked them to do one of those computer generated, ‘show what could be’ kind of things, and now we’re out of some people.
“And it looks like everything is going well, but it’s definitely five years away.”
He continued: “There will be a restaurant, there will be a concert hall, there will be a movie theater.
“Colin called me and said, ‘Hey, can you take this call about the ferry?’ and I was like ‘Are we still doing that?’”
He added: “We jokingly called it Titanic 2 in the LLC when we had to buy it.
“I can’t take all the credit for that.”
He said: “I’m glad it didn’t become scrap or whatever. In fact, it’s funny that this is going to be a lifelong problem for Colin and me.”
The ‘King of Staten Island’ star, who is said to be in rehab seeking help after years of battling PTSD and borderline personality disorder, claimed the couple was high when they made the purchase.
He told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “I have no idea what’s going on with that. Colin and I were really high a year ago and we bought a ferry. And we’re working it out.”
However, Colin refuted this claim.
He joked on Instagram: “Is it worse that he was actually completely sober when we bought the ferry?
“We are excited to prove non-believers wrong.
“You’re going to ROAR to get on this ferry in two years. Mark my words.”
Pete had also joked that he wanted the ship to disappear.
The actor joked, “I hope he turns into a Transformer and gets out of there so I can stop paying for it!”
Pete and Colin previously discussed their bizarre purchase during an episode of ‘Saturday Night Live’ in early 2022.
The comedians confessed at the time that they had no long-term plans for their purchase.
Pete said, “Hey! We bought a ferry, the windowless van from the sea.”
Colin added: “Yeah, it’s very exciting. We thought the whole thing through.”
