Fallon Hits A Homerun With Brian Williams Performing “Rapper’s Delight”

Jimmy Fallon hosts The Tonight ShowJimmy Fallon is off to a very good start on the Tonight Show not only in terms of ratings and audiences, but also in terms of material. It’s only the third episode of his show, but he’s already bringing out some seriously funny material like this Brian Williams rap mash-up. The video has already gone viral, with over two millions views in just as many days of being online as it presents a very elaborate mash-up, perfectly timed in terms of audio in which Brian Williams raps flawlessly the lyrics to the 1979 classic “Rapper’s Delight” by the Sugar Hill Gang. It’s basically made up of old clips from Williams newscasts that were put together to form the words to the rap song. The producers also added Lester Holt to the mix, as he “takes it away” in the middle of the song. For Fallon, this is a recurring theme, as he previously used Williams as his guinea pig for other rap mash-ups on the Late Night Show. These mash-ups included Warren G’s “Regulate,” N.W.A.’s “Straight Outta Compton,” and Snoop Dogg’s “Nuthin But A G Thang.”
