Jimmy Fallon Forces Roller-Coaster-Hating Celeb Onto Terrifying Ride (VIDEO)

Fallon Kevin HartI always thought that if you were a celebrity on a promotional circuit, you'd definitely put The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon at the top of your priority list because Fallon seems to have a knack for coming up with these awesome bits that go super-viral and do wonders for a celebrity's public image. Like Brian Williams' ongoing rap mashups, or the show's famous lip sync battles (Emma Stone FTW!), or the time he did the evolution of hip-hop dancing with Will Smith. Unfortunately, comedian Kevin Hart kind of got the short end of the stick this week when Fallon forced him to face one of his biggest fears while cameras were rolling.

What is Hart so scared of? Rollercoasters. So naturally, Fallon made him ride Universal Studios' Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit coaster, and Hart's reaction was ... fairly priceless. I have to hand it to him, though: at least he didn't pass out and soil his pants, because I'm pretty sure that's what I would have done.


As Hart told Fallon on The Tonight Show, "You know damn well I don't like no roller coasters." The show, conveniently enough, is broadcasting from the Universal Orlando theme park in Florida this week, where the Rip Ride Rockit is located. According to Wikipedia, the Rip Ride Rockit is 167 feet high, 3,800 feet long, and reaches a top speed of 65 MPH, all of which personally adds up to a giant OH HELL NO from me.

In fact, this is exactly how I'd react if someone tried to convince me to get on that ride:

Hart had to suck it up for the experience, though, because as he put it, "I can't turn back because I'll look like a bitch." Here's the resulting clip:

Okay, first of all, I had to Google to see how tall Kevin Hart is, because I couldn't believe he barely made the height requirement. Turns out he's 5'2". The More You Know™!

Anyway, his FACE. HAAAAAAA. I mean, he's all:

And Fallon's all, WHEEEEE!

In conclusion, if I ever become a famous Hollywood star, I am never going on Jimmy Fallon's show, because nope nope nope nope NOPE.

Are you a giant chicken about roller coasters too?
