Jeff Goldblum Just Tried Pocky For The First Time Ever And Called It “Almost Religious Ecstasy”

We all know and love Jeff Goldblum, and I’d like to think we all know and love Pocky too. Except, as it turns out, Jeff Goldblum didn’t know (or love) Pocky — until this week.

Created in 1966, Pocky’s name comes from the Japanese onomatopoeia for the snapping sound made while eating these chocolate-covered sticks, according to the Pocky website.

John then encouraged Jeff to try some (there’s both matcha-flavored and strawberry-flavored Pocky on the table). So, he snagged a matcha-flavored Pocky stick, tried it, and…

Rolling Stone

…immediately jolted forward in what I can only describe as delight, adding, “I love it. Wow!”

He then tried a strawberry-flavored Pocky stick and described his first experience with Pocky as “spectacular” and “almost religious ecstasy,” complete with classic Jeff Goldblum expressions and mannerisms.

Makes a pretty good slogan, don’t you think? Well, Pocky USA does. In fact, they updated their Instagram bio to read, “‘Almost religious ecstasy’ – Jeff Goldblum.”

Pocky USA also responded to the clip of the video shared by Rolling Stone on Twitter, adding that they’d share Pocky with Goldblum any time.

They even made the audio a sound. (If you’re not familiar with TikTok, by making the actual audio of your video a TikTok sound, other users can save and use it in their own videos. So now, users can make videos with the audio “almost religious ecstasy.”)

Comments ranged from general Jeff Goldblum thirst to outrage over anyone not knowing about Pocky.

Other comments focused on the countless Pocky flavors out there.
