Late Night With Jimmy Fallon gave us all something to be thankful for last night when the talk show host and guests Rashida Jones and Carrie Underwood replaced the lyrics from pop songs and turned them into instant Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas classics. Miley, Lorde, and Katy Perry never sounded so good!
When it comes to musical parodies, Fallon doesn't miss the mark too often. And while some of the lyrics here are good, cheesy fun, it really was nothing short of a brilliant idea to change Lorde's Royals into "Dreidels" and have Carrie Underwood recreate Miley Cyrus' ridiculous American Music Awards performance by sticking her in front of this cat screen. Wrecking Ball was altered so that the song became a tribute to butterball turkeys and the boyfriend who'd rather sit in front of a TV all day watching football. Oh, we can relate, Carrie.
And then the talented trio borrowed Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines and replaced the lyrics with "I hate these long lines" to include a tribute to Black Friday shopping. And there was nothing left to say. I mean, isn't it about time America got its very own Black Friday anthem? That was the moment that this officially became a truly amazing holiday song parody.
