 "I'm just a moron in the living room..."
Fallon: So what I do, I've got this video and it's like a "Meet the Parents" type of idea, and Zooey Deschanel plays my girlfriend. And I meet the parents and they're singing karaoke — it's a party for her grandmother — and they make me sing a song, and then the only song I know is "Idiot Boyfriend" off my album. Why? I don't know. So then I do it, but in my fantasy I'm singing like I'm really into it. There's bubbles all around me, but in real life I'm just a moron in the living room. And then I end up grinding with the grandmother and I get thrown out of the house.

Yago: Is this based on a real-life experience?

Fallon: Definitely, yeah. Weekly experience.

Yago: Well, that basically wraps up every question that we have.

Fallon: No, no. There's probably more questions.

Yago: Um, OK. Are you rooting for anybody in particular?

Fallon: Why would you ask me something stupid like that for?

Yago: Because I figure that's, like, the stock ...

Fallon: Yeah, I'm rooting for me. I hope I do well.

Yago: Was there any video that you saw that totally blew you away?

Fallon: Yeah, I liked the Eminem video. That was great. I thought that was a really cool video.

Yago: The biggest-nominated video that we've got.

Fallon: Is it really? Well I think deservedly so. Did you have anything to do with the judging or picking?

Yago: Absolutely none whatsoever. I told you to blame me for the questions, not the nominations.

Fallon: Dude, it's just me. Don't worry about these microphones — it's just us talking. You picked the videos, didn't you?

Yago: None. Dude, you'd think I'd have kind of pull here, but you'd be totally, totally wrong.

Fallon: Nothing? I've seen your office. Your dressing room's huge.

Yago: What office? I work in a cubicle.

Fallon: Ha, ha. Do you really?

Yago: Behind the refrigerator, underneath the soda machine.

Fallon: Your desk has wheels on the bottom — like, "Hey, there's my office. They're pushing my office over there!"

Yago: Hey, thanks a lot, man.
