I love when celebrities makes bets with each other. The result is always amazing stuff like this. When Stephen Colbert challenge Late Night host Jimmy Fallon to raise $26,000 for charity, I don’t think Stephen realized the power that Jimmy had to pull in funds. In losing the bet and being a great sport, Stephen took to the stage at Jimmy’s show to sing a rendition of Rebecca Black’s song, Friday.
The musical number involved some pretty awesome special guests. For the rap, Jimmy’s house band The Roots kicked it mocking the car scene by driving in with just a car door. For the famous bridge, Jimmy Fallon made his own cameo and then out of nowhere, forgotten American Idol winner Taylor Hicks.
To finish off the number with a bang, the New York Knicks’ Dance Team jumped on the stage with an explosive dance routine. This was absolutely hilarious and so much better than the original. I think they should record a full version and sell it on iTunes to raise more money. What do you think?
