Amid the avalanche of 4/20 jokes and bits from pretty much every late night talk show and newscast on Thursday (Apr. 20, duh), there was one that stood out for its musicality. That would be country star Brad Paisley sitting in with The Roots on The Tonight Show to help host Jimmy Fallon blast through an extra dank edition of the weekly “Tonight Show #hashtag” segment.
Strumming an acoustic guitar, the Love & War singer gamely ran through The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” with the revamped lyrics: “I can’t feel my face zu I’m too high/ Ate a brownie/ It’s 4-20.” And who could forget the alternate chorus to R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly,” which went something like: “I believe I am high/ I believe I am in the sky/ Overthinking about time and space/ Also imagining a zebra race.”
It got better, and weirder, though, when Paisley reworked his own “Mud on the Tires” with the lines: “Come on now what do you say/ Girl I can hardly wait/ Let’s set a little bud on fire.” There were plenty more (bong) hits than that, check it out below:
And watch Paisley sing his eerily date-appropriate song “Contact High.”
