After celebrating his title with a nice burnout and confetti shower in front of the track's main grandstand at the start/finish line, Johnson headed over to SPEED's NASCAR Victory Lane to talk with the program's host John Roberts and two analysts and drivers Jimmy Spencer and Kenny Wallace.
Johnson answered a question or two using his typical politically correct rhetoric with plenty of sponsor plugs and good things to say about his car, team and his main rival Carl Edwards. Then, Johnson faced a question from Spencer that went like this:
Johnson: "Did you just ask me how I'm gonna get it up?"
Literally, I hit the ground in laughter.
Luckily for you, I was able to get the clip uploaded to YouTube below, but please, forgive me for the shaky hands at the beginning. Go on, watch it!
I still can't over how quickly and smartly Johnson shot back at Spencer with the straight-faced "Did you just ask me how to get it up?"
Mostly, though, it was so incredibly funny because of Johnson's typical overly politically correct persona when dealing with the media, and because Spencer obviously tried to cover up what he said. No such luck, though.
I was a fan of Spencer's quick response of "that's the real Jimmie" and the mischievous grin Johnson had after he landed the one-liner so effectively.
He could have easily -- and a few years ago he might have -- just ignored Spencer's line and answered the question, but instead, it was obviously a gut reaction and an indication about how sarcastic and funny Johnson can be.
Oh, the enjoyment of nearly-live TV.
