Jimmy Fallon And Rashida Jones Sing Holiday-Themed Parodies Of 2014’s Hit Songs!
Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones teamed up on Thursday’s “Tonight Show” to sing holiday-themed parodies of this year’s hottest songs from Ariana Grande, Sam Smith, Nicki Minaj and more. “You know 2014 has been a great year in music,” explained Fallon, “but as much as I’ve loved all the songs from this year, there is nothing more I love than holiday music. Whenever I hear it, It just makes me want to sing.”
That’s when Jones then made a surprise appearance on the stage to ask the late-night host, “Are you thinking what I am thinking?” Fallon replied, “Hey Rashida,are you saying change the words of popular songs to make them about Thanksgiving, and also about Hanukkah and Christmas?” And that is exactly what Jones had in mind.
The two kicked off their hilarious holiday medley with a rendition of Meghan Trainer’s hit “All About That Bass.” But Fallon and Jones changed the chorus to “Because you know I’m gonna gain some weight, gain some weight — need sweatpants.” They then went on to turn the lyrics of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” to “Won’t you drink with me?/I hate my family/ They’re insane, it’s plain to see / So, won’t you drink with me?”
Fallon and Jones put a twist on DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What,” by singing “Turducken for What.” The comedian and the actress also paid tribute to “Bang Bang” by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj by turning the main hook to “Egg Nog.” Jones sang, “I’ve got a special thing I like to drink / when I get thirsty and it’s Christmas time / Just take some nutmeg and some cinnamon / and then you mix it up it tastes so fine.” Fallon and The Roots then joined in for the chorus, crooning, “Egg nog into your mug / just add some whiskey / Egg nog getting you drunk / I’m feelin’ tipsy.”
