Jimmy Fallon has a knack for making viral videos out of celebrity game nights, but on Monday’s episode of The Tonight Show he took a sharp left turn into unknown territory and the results are kind of amazing. With the help of Jack Black, Fallon orchestrated a shot-for-shot remake of the 1990 music video for Extreme’s “More Than Words.”
Normally one would say, “Well, someone had to do it,” but in this case that’s not true — no one had to do a shot-for-shot remake of the “More Than Words” video, but it’s great that they did. The recreation is intimate, heartfelt and completely, hilariously bizarre. Black and Fallon are truly committed to taking their jobs very seriously and, for once, Fallon managed not to break character.
Extreme won a Grammy for the song (really!) and hopefully The Tonight Show can get some accolades for this feat. Please, give the wig department all the Emmys.
