It must be a lot of fun to be Jimmy Fallon. From celebrity #hashtag conversations to a modern-day spoof of the Beatles on the 50th anniversary of their arrival in the United States, the Tonight Show host seems like he can indulge in his every comedic whim while his audience sits back and reaps the benefits. In his latest viral video, Fallon invites Paul Rudd on stage for a lip syncing battle of epic proportions. Each star was allowed to choose their own songs before performing, with their opponent being none the wiser as to what was selected. So what were their weapons of choice? Rudd, being Fallon's guest, is chosen to start things off. He comes out strong with a fiery performance of Tina Turner's Grammy-award-winning single “Better Be Good to Me”, which left the future Ant-Man star feeling, “deeply uncomfortable”. Fallon commends Rudd's performance before stepping up to give his own rendition of “Juke Box Hero”, by British-turned-American rock band, Foreigner. Complete with some enthusiastic steps and a heavy-metal-worthy snarl, Rudd responds by saying of Fallon, “You're not messing around!” A tall order to respond to, but Rudd does so with flying colors in his next lip syncing portrayal of “Don't Stop Me Now” by legendary rock band, Queen. Fallon can't help himself from laughing while Rudd struts about the stage, flashing his pearly whites and showing the audience just how much Mercury he has in his blood. After Rudd's stellar performance, Fallon concedes defeat. The man knows when he's been beaten. Fallon has also hosted lip syncing battles with friends John Krasinski and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in previous episodes of The Tonight Show. Let's hope his contest with Rudd isn't the last we'll see!
