If you thought Jimmy Fallon was going to leave any of his popular Late Night bits behind when he took over The Tonight Show, you were sorely mistaken. If anything, he’s taking his best gags to another level.
That was clearly the case last night when, on just his second show behind his new desk, Fallon broke out his popular barbershop quartet. The Ragtime Gals have previously covered some of the sexiest tracks in recent memory (I Wanna Sex You Up, SexyBack, It Wasn’t Me, and Sweat come to mind), but last night they took an ambitious swing at one of history’s most vaunted sex anthems: R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix).”
And they knocked it out of the park, making every “toot toot” and “beep beep” their own. “Ignition” may have failed to become our National Anthem, but this is clearly the next best thing.
