Jimmy Fallon presents latest 'Downton Abbey' parody

Posted on

Hard times have fallen upon Downton Sixbey, the prim British estate within Late Night with Jimmy Fallon‘s studio. Thanks to the Earl’s iffy investments — in the Shake Weight and a restaurant chain called Thank Heaven Friday Is Here, or THFIH — the manor’s residents must resort to cost-cutting measures like sharing a single glass of wine in the grossest way possible and recycling tired, no-longer-topical jokes. (“Change replacement refs to Honey Boo Boo. Perhaps she tries to eat the football because she thinks it’s a piece of chocolate.”)

But don’t lose hope, fair ladies and kind sirs! There’s a light at the end of the corridor, in the form of a proposal that just might shake Sixbey to its very foundation. And more to the point: Unlike the last few episodes of Downton Abbey, this video won’t make you sob until you have no tears left, as long as the sight of Fred Armisen sucking down a goblet full of spit doesn’t make you cry.
