Jimmy Fallon parodies 'Game of Thrones' with 'Game of Desks'

He titilated you with The Jersey Floor. He intrigued you with Downton Sixbey. And now he’s going to enchant you with Game of Desks, an elaborate parody that spoofs TV’s most beloved epic fantasy.

In this exclusive clip from Late Night‘s latest lengthy send-up, host Jimmy Fallon enters an elevator as himself — and exits it as a long-haired, bearded, fur-and-leather-clad refugee from Westeros, ready to punish a writer from “the Late Night‘s Watch” for writing bad jokes

We can’t know for sure which of Games‘s characters will get the parody treatment when the full clip airs tonight at 12:35 a.m. ET — maybe Jay Leno will be looped in as the deposed Mad King Aerys? The video does at least give us a glimpse at Late Night‘s take on Varys, King’s Landing’s gelded Master of Whispers. Here, Fallon announcer Steve Higgins plays the part by stepping into elaborate robes and looping a very special necklace around his throat. Put it this way: If you touch the pendant, he’ll turn his head and cough.
