For years now, Jimmy Fallon has had producer John McDonald sift through years of footage to stitch together sound bytes of NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams into coherent lyrics of famous rap songs. Among the supercut rap songs featured on Late Night and The Tonight Show are Warren G’s “Regulate”, N.W.A’s “Straight Outta Compton”, The Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight”, Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch’s “Good Vibrations”, Young MC’s “Bust a Move”, Dr. Dre’s “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang”, and Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice”.
After pulling this stunt seven times, Brian Williams came on to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night to confront Fallon and company for utilizing his likeness for the benefit of the rap community. Williams, if you weren’t aware, is hilarious and especially adept at ribbing people. If he wasn’t a big time news anchor, he could be a comedian.
