Jimmy Fallon and Blake Shelton could be the new Abbott and Costello. These guys are too damn funny for their own good!
Blake recently dropped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to see his buddy Jimmy and promote his brand-new album, “Texoma Shore.”
And of course, with these two, it was anything but a traditional interview.
From the beginning, Jimmy started right in on his guest with a hilarious, one-man, imaginary dialogue between “young Blake” and his parents as he teased the country star about his album cover photo, which Jimmy had early compared to a Brawny paper towel ad.
From there, it only escalated.
Jimmy didn’t realize Lake Texoma was a real place, which had Blake in stitches trying to explain it to his New York pal.
“I thought you maybe made up a word or something … You’re an artist! You do things like that,” Jimmy said in a deadpan tone.
“Would you interview me for God’s sake?” Blake finally blurted out, and the audience just lost it.
What followed was even more hilarious, as Blake talked about his tour with Brett Eldredge, Trace Adkins and Carly Pearce and also his new Oklahoma restaurant and bar, Ole Red. Jimmy had some choice words about the name of the venue.
But when Jimmy launched into his own interpretation of Blake’s current hit, “I’ll Name The Dogs,” the crowd really cracked up.
You have to watch it for yourself above. Try not to fall out of your chair. Blake’s album, “Texoma Shore,” is out this Friday, Nov. 3.
