Say what? During Russell’s April 22 appearance on the ‘Tonight Show,’ the actor and Jimmy decided to raise a little awareness on Earth Day by singing ‘Balls In Your Mouth.’ Click to WATCH!
Yes, this actually happened. On the April 22 episode of The Tonight Show, Russell Crowe, 51, and Jimmy Fallon, 40, teamed up for one amazing musical performance. In honor of Earth Day and the five-year anniversary of the 2010 oil spill, Russell and Jimmy protested against BP by singing “Balls In Your Mouth.” Don’t get any wrong ideas about this song — it’s about tar balls!
Russell Crowe On ‘Tonight Show’: Sings ‘Balls In Your Mouth’
Who else thinks Russell and Jimmy should form a band together? The actor and late night host collaborated on one amazing protest song on April 22. Jimmy complained that BP still hadn’t gotten his message (i.e. his protest song) about the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill that began on April 20, 2010.
Tar balls still float in the oceans and continue to wash ashore all the way from Texas to Florida after the horrible accident, and that doesn’t sit well with Jimmy. In order to make his message even more clear, Jimmy and Russell brought out their guitars and started singing “Balls In Your Mouth.”
The lyrics of this song are top notch. Here’s a little taste of the song:
“Balls in your mouth, balls in your mouth. Don’t swim in the ocean, you’ll get balls in your mouth.”
Jimmy has had so many A-list celeb guests all in one week. Before Russell hit up Rockefeller Center, The Age of Adaline star Blake Lively, 27, made an appearance on April 21. The actress gushed about her daughter James and revealed that she competes with husband Ryan Reynolds, 38, over James’ first words.
“We’re total rivals,” Blake told Jimmy. “I hear [Ryan] all the time, ‘Da-da, da-da,’ and then I walk in the room and he’s like, ‘Ma-ma.’ And I’m like, ‘How dare you do that?’”
