Jimmy Fallon And Rashida Jones Sing Holiday Parodies Of 2015’s Biggest Songs (VIDEO)
Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Drake and The Weeknd were among the artists whose songs were rewritten by Fallon’s “Tonight Show” to be about Thanksgiving, as well as Hanukkah, Black Friday and Christmas. Swift’s “Bad Blood” became a song about needing a nap after a big Thanksgiving meal. Meanwhile, Rihanna doesn’t need money on Thanksgiving, however, “Bitch Better Have My Stuffing.”
Silento’s “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” became about whipping mashed potatoes and eating turkey legs, while Fallon and Jones broke apart a wishbone for Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” which now included the addition of a Butterball turkey.
Many additional songs got the holiday treatment before an epic finale in which Queen Latifah appeared to help turn Macklemore’s “Downtown” into a song about the North Pole. After Fallon, Jones and Latifah performed the opening medley, they were joined by Eric Nally, who sings the chorus of the original song.
Nally came onstage riding a sleigh and dressed like Santa Claus while singing a revamped version of the chorus, with such lyrics as, “He puts his toys onto his sleigh. He comes around on Christmas Day. Santa Claus is on his way. As he flies across the USA!”
