Jennifer Lawrence and Jimmy Fallon Want You to Come Dance with Them
Nobody is better at getting A-listers to make endearing goofballs of themselves than Jimmy Fallon. And we’re eternally grateful that his preferred goofball-making method is silly dancing.
Earlier this week—in a sketch that was kind of a bizarro cousin to his “History of Dad Dancing” and “History of Mom Dancing” bits—Fallon got your best friend Jennifer Lawrence to take the dance bait. Unsurprisingly, given all the practicing she’s been doing on top of Billy Joel’s piano, she aced it.
The setup? Lawrence and Fallon played Des and Dash, two vaguely sad, aggressively wigged, weirdly small-mouthed rave kids in an infomercial for a series of instructional dance tapes called “Come Dance with Us.”
Just…process that for a second.
Anyway, in true Fallon fashion, the moves included such gems as “Check the Door”…
…”Lunch Box Salute”…
…and “Kick Waterfall.”
There was something delightfully Romy and Michele about the whole thing. (And not just the fact that their outfits could totally be R&M designs.) I think it was J. Law and Fallon’s steadfast commitment to the crazy—which is the only way this particular brand of crazy works.
I’ll come dance with you, Des and Dash! Let me just dig up my rainbow Muppet arm warmers. Because I legitimately own a pair. (Thanks for that, college.)
