Comedy writer Bonnie Datt once bought a chainmail vest "for clubbing"—a purchase she later came to lament, once she realized that chainmail isn't particularly slimming. Inspired by this, she now spends her spare time asking famous people to dish about purchases which they initially loved—but ended up regretting, for Buyer's Remorse.

This week we talk to the one of the nicest and funniest men in comedy, Seth Meyers, Saturday Night Live's hilarious Weekend Update anchor and the show's head writer. Recently Seth was the guest speaker at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner, where he wittily shredded the political elite—and pointed out to Donald Trump a few of the many reasons he would not make a good president.
As we were about to interview Seth, his former SNL co-star, Maya Rudolph came up and gave him a kiss on the cheek.
Seth Meyers: Was that an audible kiss? Get that on tape!
Racked: Got it! So Seth, can you tell us what you've had buyer's remorse about?
Seth Meyers: Right before I realized that you could buy all your TV shows on iTunes I bought a lot of box sets of DVDs. Full seasons of shows like The Sopranos and stuff. And now they are just things that take up space because I would never watch the DVDs anymore—and you can't get rid of them because no one wants to buy them.
