Audience Suggestion Box: Spandau Ballet Guys on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on May 4, 2017.

Some Tonight Show skits are hilarious for no reason. That was the case on Wednesday night (May 3) when host Jimmy Fallon reached into the audience suggestion box and received a request from a fan to tell more knock-knock jokes. So, ever the affable host, Fallon told a groaner about a gorilla and the punchline led to a shot of two foppish dandies in the audience laughing along to the strains of Spandau Ballet's 1983 new wave classic "True."

"We know that joke was good," the heavily made-up pair sporting super frilly pirate shirts sang to the tune of the early MTV classic as they swayed in their seats.

Wait, what?

"We like that joke you told," they continued crooned while Fallon looked on in confusion. Turns out it was none other than (the fake) Gary and Martin Kemp from the British synth pop band and that's just how they laugh.

If it sounds weird, it got way weirder, involving some Kemp-on-Kemp tickling, way more "True" laughing and a full audience sing along.
