For an installment of charades on Monday night’s Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon paired himself off with Charles Barkley—a decision he soon started to regret.

Fallon and Barkley went up against Ewan McGregor and Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy. They didn’t get off to a much better start, but it wasn’t as disastrous as Fallon’s turn when he attempted to get Barkley to guess Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. After some confusion over the number of words in the clue, Fallon was even prompted to ask Barkley, “You’ve played charades before, have you not?” When Barkley went up to act out “Ice Ice Baby,” it didn’t go much better. Fallon apparently had Frozen on the brain.

At least, however, there was a triumphant ending.
