Watch Jack Black & Jimmy Fallon Recreate Extreme’s “More Than Words” Video

Extreme’s video for the 1990 if-you-really-loved-me-we’d-fuck power ballad “More Than Words” is one of those absolutely ineffable early-’90s pop culture artifacts. If you were the right age at the time (between nine and 14, I’d say), you probably know every second of that video, even if you don’t quite realize that you do. And last… More »

Meet Pharrell & Jimmy Fallon’s Fake ’80s Duo Afro & Deziak

Sometimes it seems like Jimmy Fallon is secretly gunning for a career in music. Between his killer Neil Young impression and all his experience with various other fake collabs, he’d probably be pretty good at it.
