It’s been a couple of years since Jimmy Fallon and John Krasinski introduced the world to Lip Sync Battles, but since then, the goofy segment has become a full-fledged TV show.

The segment begins innocently enough, with Fallon taking on “Brand New Key” by Melanie. It’s nothing flashy, but watching him pretend to fall over when he “tries on” his new roller skates is sure to make you crack a smile.
