Move over, two Neil Youngs. Jimmy Fallon has become known for his impression of the iconic singer-songwriter (sometimes roping in the legend himself to act as his duet partner) but James Corden threw his own gauntlet into the “long-haired ’70s rock parody” game on Tuesday night when he and guest Jim Parsons went about recreating Kansas’ famous music video for “Dust in the Wind.”
Corden took the lead, singing high notes dressed in a frilly shirt, while Parsons, shrouded in a mane of hair, nailed the fiddle solo — exaggerated visual parodies of the band’s look in the original. As with the Kansas video, Corden and Parsons appeared to be standing somewhere in nature, surrounded by a magical mist. By the end of the video, they too were reduced to mounds of dust.
