[ cheers and applause ] ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thank you! welcome, everybody. thank you. [ cheers and applause ]
that's what i'm talking about, right there. hot crowd! great new york city crowd, welcome, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] welcome to "late night with jimmy fallon." thank you, everybody. thank you for being here. thank you for watching. here's what people are talking about. it's all over the news again today. obamacare. boy. [ light laughter ] well, they're starting to do a little better, okay, but it's still -- they're still struggling to catch up with most people. so, now the white house has started asking celebrities to endorse obamacare. [ laughter ] because if anyone knows how to put a new face on something, it's hollywood. [ laughter and applause ] they're going to do it. one of the celebrities they've approached about this world's sexiest man, adam levine. [ cheers ] the rest of maroon 5 were, like, "how can we help?" the white house was like, "well, just make sure this message gets to adam levine." that's not fair because they're a team.
>> steve: they're a team. >> jimmy: yeah. speaking of hollywood, there was kind of a shocker this morning at the golden globes nomination. turned out "the butler" did not get nominated for best dramatic film. [ audience ohs ] which is too bad because it's the one character who's already dressed for an award show. [ light laughter ] >> steve: right. >> jimmy: impeccably sharp. to show up in character. >> steve: exactly. >> jimmy: more movie news. oh, boy, this is a big news. the producers of "the hunger games" are making some fans angry for adding a new character to the next movie who was never mentioned in any of the books. [ audience oohs ] fans are like, "you're making things up that didn't even happen!" [ laughter and applause ] and the producers are like, "yeah, none of this happened, it's a fictional story, we made the whole thing up." i saw this today. you know the guy, alabama kicker, cade foster. he had a tough time in the iron
bowl. he missed three field goals against auburn. and a lot of people blamed him for losing the game. so listen to this, former president george w. bush actually sent him a note to offer him some support. [ light laughter ] really, the guy had bad aim. you think he'd get a note from dick cheney. [ laughter ] "sorry about that, buddy." only got half your face but it's no big deal. you guys see this? my man, kanye west -- he stopped his concert in texas because apparently a fan was making fun of him. [ light laughter ] so kanye stopped the show and he yelled, "i'm kanye mother f'ing west." but then he pulled out his driver's license to prove it. look at this, it is his name. that's his actual name. [ laughter ] he wasn't lying. i didn't know that. >> steve: i didn't know that either. wow. >> jimmy: it all makes sense. that's the best way to handle it. >> steve: yeah.
just tell them the truth. >> jimmy: in that situation, just tell the truth. [ laughter ] that is the man's name. this is kind of cool. the canadian airline west jet -- you hear about this? yeah, some canadians here? west jet, they're the coolest people ever. they had this new holiday promotion. i think it's great. before they get on the plane, they asked passengers what they want for christmas. then they buy the item during their flight and have it waiting for them at baggage claim. [ audience aws ] isn't that awesome? well, southwest airlines has a fun new promotion. [ laughter ] where they just send your luggage to the wrong airport. [ laughter ] where's your -- go on an adventure. go bond with your family. it's a bonding experience for your family. speaking of christmas, i love working at rockefeller center this time of year. i just love it around here. all the tourists. you have the tree. you got the skating rink. did you guys see any of the ice skaters outside? [ cheers and applause ] it's so festive, and so fun. i love watching those guys
skate. but what i really, really love is watching them wipe out. [ light laughter ] so actually, we've set up a camera outside. and filmed the rink earlier today. and we caught some great wipeouts. let's show some of the footage. here we go. everyone's skating, everyone's having a good time. check out this guy here. he tries a jump move. watch his jump move. look at that. [ laughter ] nope. no. try to jump, why would you -- there's a guy and his son. "hey, come on, son. take it steady, son. -- slow it down, slow it down. whoa!" and dad falls. this guy is the best. watch this guy. he almost falls. "nope, i got it. whoa, whoa, whoa. i got it, i got it." now, here's him a couple seconds later. "whoa, whoa, whoa. i got it, i got it, i got it, i got it." now, this one, he gets a little bit too cocky. throws up a lot of speed here. "whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa." that's the end of that guy. he's out.
"whoa, whoa, whoa." [ applause ] cartoon falls. that's not how anyone falls. -- boink! here's a big local story here. a lot of people excited about this. lawmakers here in new york have renewed their efforts to legalize marijuana. [ cheers ] which explains its new nickname, new york, the city that oversleeps. [ applause ] "hey, man, i gave dan the finger." >> steve: "no, man, you're supposed to say hi to dan fingerman." >> jimmy: oh, i gave dan the finger, man. >> steve: no, man. wait, what? >> jimmy: wait, where am i? >> steve: what year is this? >> jimmy: i didn't even smoke weed, i'm just tired. [ light laughter ] >> steve: you overslept. >> jimmy: not cool, dude. i think it actually works out in new york because the statue of liberty already dresses like a stoner.
[ light laughter ] like a robe, candles. weird hat holding a big lighter. [ laughter ] i see that working. [ applause ] it's about time. i saw this thing online, somebody forwarded me this video today on the -- from the internet. it's a lawyer. one of those local lawyers that do those tv commercials. his name is scott hoy. and it's got to be one of the most confusing commercials i've ever seen. i love this. let's take a look. >> we've seen a series of car accidents recently involving rollovers and serious injuries to passengers. i don't know if it's video games or what, but it's so unfair that after something like this, to blame people in the back seat or say they deserved it. i don't like consoling these parents about what's happened. but i'll do it until it stops. will you please stop? i'm scott hoy. [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: okay, thank you, scott hoy. i know i'll always be ready for you if a video games makes me blame a passenger in the car and the car flips over. i'm gonna stop it. so thank you. apparently he wins trials by confusing the jury. [ light laughter ] "first of all, i'm scott hoy and my client wasn't playing a video game when he stopped to blame the passengers and i'm the one who had to go back and tell the parents to stop playing video games. i'm scott hoy." look, carnival cruises is making news again. yeah, apparently they're coming out with a new dr. suess themed cruise. it's called, "oh, the places you'll get stranded." it's really, really nice. [ laughter and applause ] >> steve: we love that cruise. you know what you probably eat on that cruise? >> jimmy: what's that? >> steve: green eggs and ham. you know all the places you go on that cruise? probably in the hallway.
[ laughter ] >> jimmy: finally -- this is -- the crap in the hat. [ laughter ] finally, this is funny. i saw this. ohio state basketball player amir williams was interviewed on tv after his team's win last night. and he's talking about what gets him motivated to perform. and he almost gives us too much information about what goes on at practice. just watch. >> your progression over the last four or five games, what can you attribute that to? >> coach -- he's been on my -- my back every damn practice -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: whatever relieves the tension before the game. we have a great show tonight! give it up for the roots. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thank you very much,

>> jimmy: yes, amazing. >> it's a wonderful thing. but when you come to think about it, literally is quite eccentric. because what they ask you to do is get all dolled up and then put parts of your body into wet cement. and including your shoes. which is odd, you know, so you're in -- forgive me -- this position, like that. [ light laughter ] that's an opportunity. for -- to -- blackmail really. so i'm like this thinking this is weird, weird. >> jimmy: weird. >> and then they're all -- snapping and taking pictures and all of that. and then i think i did a pratfall like i always do. like i did just then because i'll do anything for a laugh. and i just fell over like that. and the press took photographs. and because of course the press will literally suck any joy, irony, life, humor or happiness
