Watch Gwyneth Paltrow Sing Awkward Text Messages With Jimmy Fallon

The pair took part in a game of “First Textual Experience"


Embarrassing text messages got a musical twist on Friday’s edition ofThe Tonight Show, with vocal stylings by Gwyneth Paltrow and Jimmy Fallon.

The pair took part in a game of “First Textual Experience,” where they sang renditions of (unfortunate) text exchanges between potential romantic interests.

One suitor opened by typing out lyrics from Lionel Richie’s “Hello,” which was met with poor results, instead of while another tried to duck out of a conversation by replying with a “SERVICE 404 ERROR.”

But the best/worst one might be the person who accidentally typed “Manboobs” instead of “Monday” while asking someone out. Watch (and listen) to Fallon and Paltrow do all their renditions below.
