Jeremy Lin + Pearl Jam = Jimmy Fallon 'Late Night' hilarity

Posted on

Jimmy Fallon Jeremy Lin

Fair warning: If you’re a guy’s guy, this clip might bring you to your knees with its goodness. Last night, Jimmy Fallon once again dove into the crevasses of his kooky mind and found a way to bring together Knicks superstar Jeremy Lin and grunge legends Pearl Jam. I like to think of this as the peanut butter and chocolate of pop culture: two seemingly different things that have come together in delicious (and hilarious) pairing.

With a Kim Kardashian shout-out thrown in for good measure, this is as close to current-events perfection as we humans may ever get. See Fallon’s howling homage after the jump.

What do you think, PopWatchers? Sarah Palin and our own Jeff Labrecque have been infected with Linsanity. Have you been holding out? If so, was this your tipping point? Can you resist any longer? And can you think of any other musical shout-outs to the pro baller you’d like to see?
