With his many goofs, gags, and parodies, Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is a champion of all things ’90s, and it doesn’t get much more ’90s than the somber, black and white video for “More Than Words” by the rock band Extreme. The unbuttoned shirts, the waist-length hair, the affectionate harmonizing — the video had it all. Which is why it was ripe for Fallon’s plucking when guest Jack Black stopped by the show and joined him in a send-up of the video. Painstakingly recreated down to the very shot, the parody even has a smug guy holding up a lighter like in the original. (Always hated that guy.)
So if you’re in the need of a power ballad — aren’t we all? — check out Jack Black and Jimmy Fallon go to Extreme with “More That Words”. And be sure to catch Jack in the comedy The D Train, in theaters this Friday.
