Jimmy Fallon Scores a Piggyback Ride on Bill Cosby!
While discussing the stupidity of tightrope walking, the “Cosby Show” stud offered to give it a go with a slightly modified setup (gaffer tape on the floor of the stage).
Fallon explained, "We wanted to keep the kind of theme going with the show, this extreme sports, and wanted to make a big event out of this, so we've convinced Mr. Bill Cosby here, Dr. Cosby, to tightrope."
After explaining his complete lack of understanding regarding the appeal of the activity, Bill simply asked, "Is there a pole? I'll show you what I mean.”
Cosby continued, "First of all, this is what you see the person with. I'm not saying they're phonies. I'm saying, I don't understand why in life, with all the jobs people have, you would want to now, have a falls beneath you, which to your death… Wind is blowing, birds laughing at him and fish talking to each other."
Following Bill’s unsuccessful traverse of the tape, Fallon hopped on the 76-year-old's back and rode him to the finish line like a Kentucky Derby thoroughbred!
