Ricky Gervais Plays ‘Word Sneak’ With Jimmy Fallon on ‘The Tonight Show’ (Video)

“Have you ever had Richard Gere on the show?” he asks while trying to casually say the word “gerbils”

Ricky Gervais and Jimmy Fallon may have had too much fun playing a game of “Word Sneak” on “The Tonight Show.” The premise is simple. Each is given a list of five words, and they have to try and slip them so casually into the conversation that the other one won’t even know what their word was.

Suffice to say, they each failed on every count. Gervais may have come the closest with the word “gerbils,” had he not prefaced his pedestrian story about looking at animals in a pet store with the question, “Have you ever had Richard Gere on the show?”

Fallon countered that statement by talking about how great it is that gerbils fit in “fanny packs.” Other words they failed to slide smoothly into their chatter included mullet, breadsticks, Shaquille O’Neal, and Spanx. Gervais refused to even try to casually drop “nip-slip” into the conversation.

But they saved the best — or more appropriately the worst — for last. Gervais’ last word was “squeegee,” and so he asked Fallon if he had a nickname for his penis. Fallon simply responded with the final word on his list: “Keanu Reeves.”
