Jimmy And Jack Channel Essence Of Cherone And Bettencourt
Love him or hate him, Jimmy Fallon keeps on nailing celebrity impersonations, especially those of the musical variety! Last year, the 42-year-old talk show sensation made headlines when he teamed up with actor and friend Jack Black for a shot for shot remake of Extreme’s “More Than Words” music video and y’all, after a year, we still cannot get enough. Channeling the essence of Gary Cherone and Nuno Bettencourt, Jimmy and Jack bring laughs and plenty of nostalgia to boot in their spot on cover of “More Than Words,” complete with Jimmy – err, Nuno – fingerpicking and keeping that killer harmony while Jack takes the reins on lead vocals.
Fun Fact: The song was described by Bettencourt as a song warning that the phrase “I love you” was becoming meaningless.
For something meant to be lighthearted and silly, Jack and Jimmy really turned this popular show segment into something special and uniquely theirs. Check it out in the video below and don’t blame us if you can’t get “More Than Words” out of your head today!
