When it comes to games and skits on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon usually has the edge on his guests. First off, he plans the challenges, so that’s already a huge advantage, but Fallon’s also got this boundless, goofy energy that typically isn’t met by other celebs (though his lip sync battle with Melissa McCarthy was as tight a race as you’re going to get). That being said, Jimmy may have met his kooky match with Mike Myers.
Dressed in colourful track suits, each man represented their respective countries and Myers was as proudly Canadian as ever, even mentioning “the Treaty of Ghent that ended the War of 1812,” and “the Rush-Bagot Treaty that limited the amount of war ships on the Great Lakes.” Damn, the Scarborough boy had it going on! They each took turns rolling giant dice and had to create a routine or move to whatever it landed on.
Myers kicked it off with “Perpetual Motion” and used the whole stage, never disappointing us once. But despite the bar Mike set, Jimmy battled back with his own roll, “The Which Pocket Did I Put My Keys In?” and proceeded to frantically search for his missing keys.
Myers joked, “Not bad for an American” before rolling “Hot Poutine” and if you like your curds melty and gravy piping, this was the dance for you.
The competition was fierce and only got better (Fallon’s “Windy Plastic Bag” was mind-boggling) before the SNL alums united, “two nations as one,” to slay “The Slip N Slide.” Enjoy. But be warned, you might be exhausted after watching their moves.
