Dillon Francis is a man of many jokes. If you haven’t already seen the cover art for his song, “Hello There,” then you’re missing out because the image of a jolly man holding a single pineapple can make any somber person’s day that much better.

The DJ continued the shenanigans with the latest release of his music video for the spunky tune, which he released on YouTube Thursday. In the video, he impersonates late night hosts in a number of different skits while playing varying absurd characters around the show’s set.

“It’s just me saying Jimmy [Fallon] watch out, I’m here to stay. I can do what you’re doing. I’m coming for his spot,” he lightheartedly says about his bold characters in the “Hello There” music video.
