On the show’s fifth anniversary — to be clear, that would be the fifth anniversary of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon specifically — Sandler got up on stage to perform this number for the apple of his eye, Jimmy Fallon.
As Fallon mentioned, Sandler was one of his first guests when the Saturday Night Live veteran took the reins of The Tonight Show in 2014. So Sandler wanted to continue to support his buddy by singing, “My Jimmy Fallontine/ You make me laugh when you Slow Jam the News.”
The Sandy Wexler and Ridiculous 6 actor continued musing about how Fallon imitates “me with your zaba-daba-do” word flourishes. He does do that. Fallon is essentially “a younger version of me,” Sandler adds, “except not a Jew.”
It’s an appropriately silly song dedicated to the man who likes to rewrite “Despacito” to sound like “Flaming Hot Cheeto.”
