Adele, Jimmy Fallon play Box of Lies

Posted on

Even Adele isn’t immune to the charms of Jimmy Fallon and his well-crafted late-night sketches.

On Monday’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the 27-year-old singer participated in a game of “Box of Lies,” and promptly lied in host Jimmy Fallon’s face.

For the first round of the game — which forces contestants to either explain what kind of random item they pulled out of their box, or just lie about it instead — Adele tried to get Fallon to believe she had a Tyrannosaurus rex dressed up as a fairy. (In reality, it was a T. rex wearing a bandana.) Fallon didn’t believe her, leading to the wonderful moment where Adele admitted to lying (“I lie”) and then burst into her signature cackle.

In the end, it was Fallon who ruled the day. He later correctly guessed Adele was telling the truth during her second round, something she wasn’t super happy with: “B-tch,” Adele said to Fallon, who busted up laughing. Watch it all go down below.
