Zach Braff and Craig Ferguson reminisced on "The Late Late Show" Thursday night about a long-lost CBS pilot they shot together 25 years ago. It was called "High," also starred a 17-year-old Gwyneth Paltrow and sadly never made it to air.

Ferguson showed a clip from the show in which a young Braff got called into the principal's office and demonstrated to his teacher (a plump-looking Ferguson) how to use the cutting-edge technology of 1989: a Game Boy.

Both Braff and Ferguson were cracking up over how far they'd come. "I was terrified. I look at that and I see a nervous actor. It was my first gig," Braff remembered. Meanwhile, Ferguson recalled that the pilot was shot four years before he entered rehab for alcoholism. "Weren't you scared, a fat guy smelling like beer being that close to you?" he joked.
