Last week, Jimmy Fallon tasted the popular Australian spread known as Vegemite on The Tonight Show — and his facial expression revealed that he was really not a fan. So when Aussie actor Hugh Jackman stopped by the show Monday night, he decided to teach Fallon the way Australians really eat the stuff.
“I’ve got a bit of a bone to pick with you, man,” Jackman said. “You were talking a bit of smack last week about Vegemite.”
Jackman explains that Fallon simply ate the spread in the wrong way. To correct this, he pulls out some white bread, a toaster, some butter and a jar of Vegemite. He demonstrates the traditional Australian Vegemite-eating ritual — and once Fallon tries it, his face lights up. “Much better! Oh, that’s fantastic.”
Jackman even runs over to house band The Roots and lets Questlove take a bite. Questlove’s face also lights up and he offers his review: “Oh snap!”
