Pair performs “Ebony & Ivory” with Crews flexing his real muscles, while Fallon had to settle for a chest double.
Terry Crews‘ impressive physique is often a prominent aspect of his various film and television roles. His intimidating physical presence is used to comedic effect as a stark contrast to his gentle demeanor on Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
It was used again for comedy when he dropped by “The Tonight Show” to participate in the show’s first-ever “Nip Sync Duet.”
What could be better than singing the classic Paul McCartney/Stevie Wonder hit, “Ebony and Ivory” as a beautiful duet? Singing it while flexing pectoral muscles, of course. So that he could hold his own against a shirtless Crews, Jimmy Fallon went with a chest double for his part.
While it was an impressive display, it’s doubtful that Crews will be able to use this skill on his new gig as host of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?,” starting this fall. He can always challenge Andy Samberg and the cast of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” to a “Nip Sync Duet” in Season 2 of that show.
