Thanks to some expert video editing of anchor Brian Williams’s newscasts on NBC Nightly News, The Tonight Show made it look like the newsman was rapping Snoop Dogg’s “Who Am I (What’s My Name)?” on Tuesday night’s episode.

In the past, the anchor has “rapped” at least a couple of other Snoop Dogg jams, including “Gin and Juice” and “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” (featuring Dr. Dre). Other clips in this running gag show him belting out Warren G’s “Regulate,” Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight,” and Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.”
