Jimmy Fallon is known for inventing silly games to play with his guests on “The Tonight Show.” It’s part of the hot host’s comedic repertoire that keeps his show atop of the late-night ratings.
Now Fallon is trying his hand at developing games for the iPhone.
Fallon formed Sparklehorse, a game production company that debuted Thursday on the iTunes store with the game Tedzy, a colorful teddy bear on a quest for feathers to stuff his pillow and get a good night’s sleep.
Jimmy Fallon is backed by the best band on late night TV, but when it came time for the Tonight Show host to get funky performing a hip-hop classic with Will Smith, Jimmy ditched The Roots and busted out his iPad once again.
Fallon has been no stranger to kicking out tasty jams with music legends on an iPad. He created an phenomenal doo-wop number last year with Billy Joel, but with the Fresh Prince in his guest chair, Jimmy decided to kick it old school and created an beatbox version of “It Takes Too” on the spot.
Check out the duo’s awesome beatboxing in the video below:
Since taking over the Tonight Show from Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon has brought in a host of stars to sit down and goof around with him in the studio. Last night was no exception as singer Billy Joel stop by and the pair form an improvised Doo-Wop group using nothing more than an iPad app.
They got a bit of help from The Roots to really bring it home at the end but for only mixing it up on the spot with an iPad even Tim Cook himself was impressed.
Last night Bill Gates jumped onstage at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to talk about how he’s curing the world of polio as well as the next big tech ideas – weirdly there was no mention of an iWatch. What begins as a gushing interview takes an awkward turn when the former King of Windows starts eying Jimmy’s MacBook at the of his desk corner.
