Jimmy Fallon had quite conundrum on his hands when he hosted the Golden Globes this year. When his teleprompter went down, he wasn’t quite sure what to do.

So the consummate professional and presidential-hair tussler decided to bust out some of his classic impressions. What did he turn to? Neil Young? Nope. Jerry Seinfeld? Nope. Donald Trump? Nope. In the year 2016, he did his Chris Rock impression, and, ew, boy, people did not like it.

This isn’t the first time he’s done Chris Rock. The impression jogged the memory of Super Deluxe’s mad editing genius Vic Berger who cut together the Golden Globes with that time Jimmy Fallon impersonated Chris Rock on SNL… in black face.

Fallon isn’t the first performer to don that infamous racist makeup, and, unfortunately, he isn’t the last. This video, which cuts together his awkward Globes performance with his offensive SNL one, is cringe-inducing and hilarious.

Enjoy!

Metallica’s done a lot of brilliant things in their career. They have made or been involved with at least four perfect works of art. Their first three albums and the documentary Some Kind of Monster are cultural touchstones that will be looked to and enjoyed for generations.

They’ve also done some things that have not been so great. In 1999, they led the charge against mp3-sharing platform Napster, which alienated some fans — and got some us kicked off the site, not that we’re holding any grudges. They also released St. Anger, which come on.

Jimmy Fallon loves to play games and have fun. He likes to make politicians wear funny pants and give noogies to a reality gameshow host turned most powerful person on the planet. It’s his thing.

And now there’s this, a video of Metallica performing “Enter Sandman” with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on classroom instruments. Only time will tell if this falls into their works of cultural touchstones or cultural blunders. But honestly, it’ll probably just be a cute thing that makes a lot of people smile for three minutes. Enjoy!
