Brian Williams Raps Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” in Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show Mash-Up Video

Baby got back and Brian Williams got rhymes! The acclaimed journalist gave Sir-Mix-A-Lot a run for his money in a new mash-up video from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon

The hilarious clip shows Williams, 55, in footage from his NBC newscast set to the classic 1992 derriere-celebrating rap song "Baby Got Back." The Emmy-winning journalist can be heard spitting the famous rhymes about female backsides, as screens behind him tease stories from Charlie Sheen's meltdown to the limits of homeland security.

Williams gets some help in the clip from fellow NBC personalities Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. Gifford contributes the line "Me so horny," as the two women, along with Savannah Guthrie, later add shouts of "Yeah!" to William's call-and-response portion of the track. 

Fallon has had some fun with Williams in the past, previously dubbing his voice over Snoop Dogg's "Gin And Juice" and N.W.A's "Straight Outta Compton."
