John and comedian Jeff Ross went to Los Angeles to retriever Bob Saget's car at the airport.
Then they went live on Instagram and got emotional.
“I’ve never known a human being on this earth who could give that much love, individually and completely, to that many people in a way that made each person feel like he was a main character in their life and they were a main character in his life,” Mayer began from behind the wheel, noting it was a “good opportunity to say a few things” about Saget. ”Everyone is so aware how universal Bob’s love for people was.”
The live session went on for just under half an hour.
“The thing that just keeps coming up when people say they’re sorry is just, ‘I loved that guy,’” he said, starting to cry. “It’s like music to be able to say that. ‘I loved that guy.’ … He had every excuse under the sun to be cynical, to be upset, to be distrusting. … But he laughed and he spread joy and his protest against the cruelty of these things was that he was going to smile, and spread love, and be childlike, and be innocent and be loving.”
Jeff Ross and John Mayer teamed up to retrieve Bob Saget’s Prius from LAX on Wednesday (Jan. 12th).
The two spoke of their late friend on Instagram Live as they drove back from the airport with the singer saying, “I’ve never known a human being on this earth who could give that much love, individually and completely, to that many people in a way that made each person feel like he was a main character in their life and they were a main character in his life.”
Mayer added that it was Ross who ponied up the $250 to get the car out of the lot so that he could keep the receipt in his wallet as a way of keeping Saget close to him.
The comedian added, “I have my grandfather’s union card from construction and I’ll have the receipt from Bob’s car.”
His widow Kelly Rizzo shared the video on her Instagram Story and wrote, “No words for how much this meant to me. These two men have been holding me up and taking care of me (along with many other incredible people who loved my husband more than anything)."
Saget was found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday (Jan. 9th). He was 65.
