Besides getting a weird glimpse into the minds of children, the segment allowed Cruise and Fallon to stretch their acting skills — and try not to laugh. Announcer Steve Higgins acted as the narrator and had to describe the sometimes delightfully weird scenes.
The first scene involved a mummy and a skeleton who had a brief fight and then made up with a head bump — which is “like a fist bump, but with your head,” according to the writer.
The second scene saw a boy, played by Fallon, meeting a mummy, played by Cruise, at a lake. They become friends and realize they both have a love of hot dogs. The mummy likes his with dust though.
However, the final scene features the standout performances from both men. This one told the story of a mummy and a sheep who both have to deal with a crazy case of the hiccups. At one point, the mummy spills a glass of water and has to clean it up with himself (which is a pretty good joke considering it’s from a six year old).
