Little Jimmy Fallon Calls the President a 'Poopy Head' in 'Tonight Show' Promo (Video)

NBC's 11:35 p.m. timeslot is about to get more adorable

Jimmy Fallon has been training for his new “Tonight Show” gig his entire life, jokes a promo for the revamped NBC late night program.

The 35-second spot flashes back to an early elementary school-aged version of the former “Saturday Night Live” funnyman sharing monologue jokes at show-and-tell and performing panel interviews with the star of the school play.

“Did you hear this news? They say in Washington that the president is a poopy head,” the 1979 version of the comic quips to a captivated classroom audience.

And of course, it wouldn't be a Fallon promo without an adorable child version of house band, The Roots, who are there with toy instruments in hands.

“The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” debuts on Feb. 17. Longtime “SNL” head writer and Weekend Update host Seth Meyers will take over “Late Night.”

    His older counterpart would never have the balls to do that.

      No, his older self wouldn't talk like that! Move along now folks, nothing to see here!

  • littleun

    I think this will end up being one of the best moves for TV……after, of course, Johnny Carson's take over many years ago!!!!

    • bcats

      You must be the CEO of NBC!

  • bcats

    Not interested. We've already seen Fallon. I like him but after about 10 minutes of him, I'm turning the channel to find a movie! NBC screws up again!

    Oh shut-up, all of you negative jerks… nobody even thought that Late Night With Jimmy Fallon would last, and it turned out to be a huge success! It's about time we've gotten with the times and can enjoy a not so ‘stale,’ younger host of the Tonight Show!

    The President came on his show and Jimmy with his duplicitous self…groveled during the spot and now he makes a joke at the former's expense. I miss Jay Leno already.

    • Caley McGuire

      You're the one!

  • Piccer

    Remember, this is Jimmy Fallon 30 years ago! He's not talking about Obama, take it easy folks! I think the video is hilarious, especially the “Woots”.

    • David Evan

      Most folks here are not old enough to tell time. Particularly youth 30 years ago is conceptually unimaginable.

  • misshistory

    Uhhh..It is Jimmy in 1979…the president was Carter…but kinda dumb commercial anyway.
