Jimmy Fallon’s holiday pop song parody was too hilarious to be over so soon. Don’t worry, we’ve got the show covered with Christmas suggestions.
On his show recently, Jimmy Fallon parodied some pop songs with holiday twists. He had a little help from a couple of well-known ladies: Rashida Jones and Fallon crooned about being “up all night to get turkey” in a parody of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” and Carrie Underwood jumped in with a Butterball-themed version of “Wrecking Ball.”
The five-minute video included a variety of other covers including Katy Perry‘s “Roar,” which was cleverly reworked to “You’re Gonna Hear me Snore.” That was followed by Lorde’s “Royals,” which was used to recognize the start of Hanukkah with “Menorahs.” Icona Pop’s “I Love It” became “I Don’t Care, I Stuffed It,” with hilarious references to just where exactly in the turkey you shove those bits of bread each year. Black Friday was, of course, not to be left out, because there are some “Good Buys” instead of “Good Girls,” as Robin Thicke sings it. The big finale came with a heartwarming rendition of The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey” which went something like, “I believe in you, you believe in me, I’m Santa Claus.”
But because Thanksgiving leftovers only last so long, we’ve got some fresh ideas for Fallon this upcoming holiday season. Here are more songs we think the talk-show host should add to his repertoire:
“Just Hold On, We’re Going Broke”
This song was inspired by Drake‘s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” with lyrics that include “’cause you’ve spent too much, and you know it.”
“Best Gift Ever”
You can’t have pop song covers without including a little One Direction, and a cover of their “Best Song Ever” is the perfect choice. We’re thinking a little something like this: “I said please be waiting under that tree. My mom said never in your wildest dreams. And we stayed up all night for the best gift ever.” You get the idea.
We’d keep the name the same for the popular Britney Spears song, but we’d just mix up the words a bit with something like, “You wanna candy cane. Sip hot chocolate. Look hot in an ugly sweater. You better work b****.”
