Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon has been doing at home versions of his nighttime talk show, and they’re just the right brand of quarantine humor that we need right now. In a recent episode, Jimmy Fallon was joined by Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell for a goofy soap opera parody.
“The Longest Days of our Lives” features Fallon as an amnesiac man betrayed by his lover (Wiig) who is having a social distance affair with his brother (Ferrell). There are costume changes, preposterous accents and meaningful intense glares, just like you’d expect from an over-the-top soap. We can’t say more without spoiling the fun, but our favorite part is watching Fallon’s screen as he tries to stay serious as Ferrell is acting completely ridiculous.
And if the soap opera parody wasn’t enough and you’re really missing Jimmy Fallon jamming with the Roots, you’ll love this version of “Don’t Stand So Close to Me”, with the Roots and Sting doing a cover of the super timely song.
And in case you missed it, last week Adam Sandler virtually visited Fallon and debuted his “Quarantine Song.” Definitely worth a watch.
