Jimmy Fallon And Zach Galifianakis Role Play On 'Late Night'

July 26, 2012 By:

Zach Galifianakis and Jimmy Fallon swapped roles in a gag that should have lasted for about 25 seconds but went on for four and half minutes.

On Wednesday night’s episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” upon returning from commercial, the viewing audience was treated to Zach sitting behind the desk, posing as Jimmy, welcoming Jimmy posing as Zach, from behind the curtain to the stage of the show.

The two then pretended to be each other throughout the rest of the segment.

Jimmy is a slightly argumentative movie star trying to be taken seriously and actually promote his new film in the wake of his host's confusion, general obliviousness and at one point even snoring.

The real Zach’s new movie is the political themed comedy spoof of campaign season antics, aptly called, The Campaign. It costars Will Ferrell and the two famous funny men go head to head in a race for some seat in office.

But as far as who was sitting in who’s seat on the late night talk show, it just kind of felt weird. And not really funny weird, but awkward weird….

I guess some people think that awkward can be funny, right? I mean a lot of you people watch "The Office."

And I guess that since "Saturday Night Live" has been nothing but overly drawn out skits of uncomfortableness for like decades now, maybe this interview could be considered humorous?

Thinking about it now, Zach can take himself pretty seriously at times, and Jimmy isn’t necessarily the easiest host to watch on TV…

So reevaluating entirely, I guess the whole thing was a success? Maybe.

You can get more of Zach on August 10 when The Campaign hits theaters.
