You would think that with Robert De Niro’s history of residency in New York City apartment buildings, he’d be better equipped to operate a revolving door, but he’s not.
After De Niro and Jimmy Fallon hugged out a goodbye at the beginning of a “Late Night” bit, the “Grudge Match” star did his best to enter the lobby of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, otherwise known as the New York home of NBC. He did not succeed.
For just under a minute, the legendary actor revolves ’round-and-’round in the aptly titled sketch, “De Niro vs. Revolving Door.” At one point in the clip, another man easily negotiates the same twirling barrier-to-entry that has De Niro so stumped.
Finally, De Niro gives up, exiting the dizzying pattern the same way he entered and declaring, “F—— door’s broken.”
