Weekend funny: Jimmy Fallon gets Brian Williams to rap Marky Mark, NWA and Young MC
This may be why Jimmy Fallon winds up killing it as the new Tonight Show host in February.
He has a unique ability to craft comedy bits that cut across generations, appealing to the heart of Millenials while breaking off a bit of funny for the rest of us.
And there may be no better example than the Brian Williams Raps.
For much of this year, Fallon and his team have assembled raps using random clips of NBC News anchor Brian Williams saying each word in the song, cut together to sound as if he’s saying the whole song.
To kick off the weekend right, here’s three of the coolest ones, starting with Marky Mark’s Good Vibrations into NWA’s Straight Outta Compton and Young MCs Bust a Move.
Just try to watch this stuff without smiling.
