It is Father’s Day, and while everyone is trying to find the perfect gift for their dads, the Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon presented a pleasant surprise for dads everywhere. Fallon asked fathers to record themselves rapping a song written by Tariq from the Roots.
The outcome was wonderful and Fallon went an extra mile and spliced the best moments together into a music video, which he called “The Father’s Day Dad Rap.”
“Father’s Day is this Sunday, so a couple of weeks ago, we wrote an original rap in honor of Father’s Day, and we asked all the dads out there to learn the lyrics and videotape themselves rapping it as best they can,” the Gossip Cop quoted Fallon as saying on Friday’s show. “We got tons of great submissions, so thank you for those. We took our favorites and put them together and made a music video. So please enjoy the premiere of our ‘Father’s Day Dad Rap.’”
The One Country reported that in a recent episode of the Tonight Show, Fallon took a dig into the pros and cons of the Father’s Day and pointed out many related issues on the show.
The Father’s Day Dad Rap combines a number of clips with the fathers rapping out a line or two from the song. Some of the fathers even included their kids in the clips.
In one of the clips, the dad rapped on with his toddler in a chest carrier, while in another the father can be seen rapping, as he drove his baby, who was sitting at the back and happily swaying his little hands to the beat. One dad even tried rapping sitting on the toilet seat while his son filmed it.
Fallon also interviewed dad Tony Hale, who said that he gets stressed out every time he tries to watch Frozen with his daughter.
“Elsa zaps her sister into a coma. That’s a lot,” he said, as quoted by EW. “Oh, and I didn’t mention, the parents have died in a boating accident. As a father, I don’t know, it’s just a lot to watch.”
