Almost a year ago on Feb 17th 2014, Jimmy Fallon brought what was NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show’ with Jay Leno back to New York as ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’. So it’s time to say thanks Jimmy, you make us happy, you really do.
One Fallon fellow ‘SNL” cast member Tina Fey, has commented how warm and welcoming he is. And indeed everyone who comes on the show has a good time at the very least and the experience for the audience is always hilarious.
The video of invited quests singing ‘We are the Champions’ in honor of the Super Bowl is typical Fallon genius. First he gets the best guests, then he lets them simultaneously stretch a little and play a lot. Then he is highly appreciative of their efforts. And the end result is always terrific, sometimes deeply moving and always, always leaves the viewer enjoying life.
In the video the high octane hard hitting physical clash of the Super Bowl is transposed into a singalong. But what a singalong. There are some serious tonsils doing battle in this brief 3+ mins, but the end result is charming. Now whatever else the Super bowl is, it’s not charming, but Fallon is ….always.
