This evening Jimmy Fallon presented a new video of Brian Williams rapping “Rapper’s Delight.” (Hey, don’t ask me. I know zip about rap, but the video is catchy and well done.) I’d marvel at the patience it takes to assemble something like this, but there’s probably an app for that.

That’s just plain hilarious PT. There may well be an app for that, but I’ll bet it still took a LOT of time to gather those clips!
I thought they did a great job with it, especially when they synched the two guys.
If I only had the resources… I can think of many things I’d like to apply it too – especially news and advertising!
Hahaha great way to start the morning
Late night TV is getting good again — although I always have to think twice about which Jimmy I’m talking about.
That WAS fun. Thanks for sharing. (I also know zip about rap).
Oh good, then I’m not alone in my ignorance. And it’s willful ignorance on my part, just so there’s no misunderstanding.
I figure I’ve reached an age where I can leave all the angst to the youngsters and that’s pretty much my impression of rap…. a lot of free-floating angst. Your clip of Brian Williams was, however, just plain fun.
“Free-floating angst” is such a nice way to put it. I’m afraid my description would not be nearly as kind. I did get a kick out the video, however.
Wow … reminds me of my days in TV looooong ago when I used to do this kind of editing, before the Internet made it so easy (and yet I don’t do it now). Brian was actually looking a little funky there for a second!
I know the feeling. So much of what I used to labor over in editing, writing, prepress, etc., is so easy now with computers. Makes me wish I was still in the trenches, getting to do the job with the nifty new technology. Almost.
