Of course, Williams had no say over the matter and never actually performed the song, but that’s besides the point.
Fallon once again had his editors cut together footage from Williams’ “NBC Nightly News” broadcasts to make a startlingly good mashup, this time making it seem as if Williams was spitting the lyrics to the 1995 Grammy-nominated single.
“It’s going to take me a couple months to repay you for all you’ve done,” Williams cracked while joining Fallon as a guest. “Every night I’m downstairs, I’m doing the broadcast that pays for your hobby, and people think I have somehow colluded into the making of these videos.”
Later, Williams claimed that Cuba Gooding Jr. told him that he was a huge figure in the rap and hip hop community, which is a conversation that should have been recorded and placed in a vault to be preserved for all of time.
