Morgan Freeman might have the best voice on television. Possibly even the best voice ever -- it's smooth and deep and has authority but also a soothing calmness to it. He can read me bedtime stories anytime. You've heard his reading of Fifty Shades of Grey, right? Amazing. Freeman, as you may know, hosts the show Through the Wormhole With Morgan Freeman (by his request, be sure to keep his name in the title as you'll see in the clip). In one of the episodes, Freeman inhales helium and speaks, changing that voice we love into a sound that is bizarre and mesmerizing.
Jimmy Fallon got Freeman to suck helium again on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. Because ... yes!
The interview starts off like a typical interview. Freeman is quite witty. Fallon loves it. And then Jimmy takes out two helium balloons and asks Morgan to conduct the rest of it with altered voices. First Jimmy tries to butter him up by saying he'll call him Captain Morgan if he ever takes him sailing. Captain Morgan isn't so amused. But he does it! It happens! Morgan Freeman on helium is funnier than your funniest friend on helium despite the fact the distinguished actor calls it "undignified."
Your daily dose of happiness is all right here. Who says balloons are just for kids?
Did this clip make you laugh? How could it not?!?
