>> jimmy: thank you all very, very much. it feels good to be back home. hot crowd. welcome to "late night with jimmy fallon," everybody. you guys feeling good? [ cheers and applause ] i'm happy you're here. thank you for being here. i know traffic is awful outside. i already heard. traffic is insane here in new york city. everything's closed off because of the -- what is it? the united nations. united nations general assembly is right here in new york city. and all the world leaders coming together for this thing. today, president obama gave a big speech over there on the middle east. the leaders from the middle east were like, "you have touched our hearts. [ laughter ] and from now on, we shall have peace." [ laughter and applause ] and obama was like, "really?" [ laughter ]
and they're like, "no, but the look on your face was priceless. [ laughter ] i mean, i tried not to laugh. are you kidding me? get out of town, jack." >> steve: get out of town, jack. >> jimmy: get out of town, jack, yeah. jive turkey. [ laughter ] things have been tough lately for obama. in fact, home depot just announced that that it will cut health insurance for its part-time workers because of obamacare. [ audience oohs ] home depot's ceo said had he a hard time breaking the news to employees. you know, because it took him three hours to find one. [ laughter ] hey, do you work here? do you work here? sorry. do you work here? [ applause ] anyone work here? i've got to check myself out. i've got to go check out myself. i don't know how to do this. some more political news. i saw that new jersey governor chris christie -- that's my man. [ cheers ]
>> steve: yeah, come on. >> jimmy: he's a great guy. well, anyways, he's running a new spanish language commercial for his re- election campaign. which seems like a stretch, because, like, the only spanish phrase he knows is "yo quiero taco bell." [ laughter ] yeah, i've heard -- he told me that. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: he's not the only one trying to get re-elected. russian president vladimir putin just revealed he may run for a fourth term in 2018. yep. in fact, he already came up with a few campaign posters. let's take a look at this first one. it says, "i will put middle class families first -- on bus to siberia." [ laughter and applause ] you've got to read the parentheses. >> steve: got to read the fine print. >> jimmy: yeah. here's another one. it says, "i know where you live." [ laughter ] "putin 2018." and here's the last one here. "putin in 2018, whether you vote or not." [ cheers and applause ] that makes sense. you guys hear about dick cheney over the weekend? i guess he entered a shooting contest or something like that?
[ light laughter ] he entered a shooting contest. and it turns out his gun malfunctioned and didn't fire. it wasn't good. in fact, he ended up having to just throw some ammo in his friend's face. he just -- [ laughter ] you know -- you know what i was trying to do. >> steve: you saw what i was going for. >> jimmy: you saw what i was going for there. let's see what's going on in sports. big weekend for sports. the broncos just destroyed the raiders last night. oh, my goodness. it actually -- this is a true story. it got so bad for that that three of denver's running backs -- they actually played rock, paper, scissors to see who would get to score a touchdown on a play. [ laughter ] that's crazy. if you don't remember how that goes, it's rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper and everybody beats the raiders. [ laughter ] tough year. [ applause ] tough year. not good. this actually happened as well. yesterday, ravens wide receiver jacoby jones was on a party bus with his teammates. i don't know what that means.
[ light laughter ] when a stripper hit him with a champagne bottle. [ laughter ] on the party bus. yeah. he's fine, but jacoby was disciplined by the ravens. while the stripper was signed by the patriots. [ laughter ] they don't -- they don't fool around. [ applause ] this is pretty exciting news for facebook. i didn't know this, but it turns out that facebook is blocked in china. yeah. not allowed. but now i guess they're loosening up a little bit, and some parts of china are getting ready to unblock facebook so people can start to use it. of course, there's a lot of perks about using facebook in china. for instance, you only have to deal with your friends' baby pictures once. [ audience ohs ] not bad. [ applause ] you know you liked it. oh, come on. [ laughter ] you have to admit it. that was a good one. that was a good joke. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> steve: go nuts.
>> jimmy: oh, my goodness. did anybody watch "dancing with the stars" last night? yeah. three people. i -- [ laughter ] >> steve: two out of three. >> jimmy: i watched it last night. i watched last night. and my man, jack osbourne, is on there. ozzy osbourne's son, jack, is one of the contestants this season. well, ozzy's in the audience with sharon. probably some part of some contractual thing. he has to show up to this. anyways, they mentioned him, and everyone starts clapping, including him. but i'm not sure he knew what he was clapping for. [ laughter ] he looked a little confused. check it out. it's funny. >> but i'm telling you. >> his dad is ozzy osbourne. >> yeah. he's right there. [ cheers and applause ] [ imitating ozzy ] >> jimmy: ozzy osbourne's here? [ laughter ] [ stammering ] he's my favorite. i know all of his songs. he doesn't want to be there. watching ballroom dancing.
he used to bite the head off of bats. that's ozzy osbourne. and finally, this is crazy. yesterday, the "today" show actually had a reporter in the delivery room while a woman in texas gave birth on live tv. yeah, it was cute. she kept crying and screaming until someone gave her a bottle. not the baby, kathie lee. [ laughter ] and it was just very -- we have a great show tonight. give it up for the roots! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: welcome to the show, everybody. my voice -- my voice is a little hoarse tonight. we just flew back from losing an emmy. [ laughter ] >> steve: yea! >> jimmy: we went to -- we flew to los angeles. it was a fun trip. >> steve: yeah, fun trip.
>> jimmy: i got to see jay leno. which was great because i never get to see him because i'm always in new york. >> steve: right. >> jimmy: he was super nice. he tried to kill me. [ laughter ] >> steve: right. >> jimmy: besides that, he was very, very nice. he tried to suffocate me with a pillow. i was sleeping in the dressing room before i went on. what are you trying to do? he was, like -- [ imitating leno ] right. but we went to the emmys and it was great. and questlove djed. you were awesome, dude. you're the best dj out there. he's unbelievable. >> questlove: thank you. >> jimmy: questlove was djing. all these famous people showed up. it was very nice. and they all wanted to dance. like, come on the dance floor. but you don't -- i don't know how to dance anymore. like, with people. it's not like when i was in, like, high school, and, like you know, and i'm dancing. i look at you and we're dancing. people want to think -- oh, you want to dance? oh, yeah, i love this song. it's so good. [ cheers ] ♪ and you go, like, wait, i'm married. my wife is going to kill me. >> steve: i can not -- >> jimmy: i just had sex with you, yeah.
[ laughter ] it's not -- i wanted to dance. i didn't know what this was. that's how people dance now. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: yeah, everyone's -- someone's bent over. [ laughter ] it's just -- it's insane. >> steve: not good. >> jimmy: people are holding on to things. like, i go, "what is going on? that's not how you dance." >> steve: that's not good. "dancing with the whores." >> jimmy: yeah. [ laughter ] it's the biggest show on nbc right now. >> steve: you're going to hell in a hand basket. i love it. [ imitating bruno ] i love it when you dance with the whores. you was the best. i think you're the best. you're the best whore dancing out there. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: bruno loves it. anyways, congratulations to stephen colbert and everyone over there at "colbert report." ♪ [ applause ] genuinely happy. like, they were genuinely happy when they won. i was sitting next to them, and, like, we lost. i was, like, i don't care. i knew i was going to lose to someone, so it was, like, yeah. and he won, and he was genuinely happy. like, kissed his wife. they were so happy. and, like, his writers are awesome. so congrats to those guys over there at "colbert report." i hope you enjoy those emmys. [ cheers and applause ] well deserved. we have a great show tonight.
we love it when this guy stops by. his new movie, "don jon," is in theaters on friday. it's very funny. he plays, like -- almost like a "jersey shore" type of character. we'll talk about that. joseph gordon-levitt is here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] ladies love him. >> steve: he's a good man. he's a good man. >> jimmy: speaking of ladies love him, yeah. this guy -- oh, he's a brilliant comedian from the u.k. [ imitating accent ] he has an accent. he's very tall. he has a new show called "hello ladies." it starts sunday on hbo. stephen merchant is dropping in.

[ cheers and applause ] they are so good. you're going to love them. fantastic. got a new record. and to top it all off, it's "timberlake tuesday," you guys. [ cheers and applause ] and we kicked it off, actually, a couple weeks ago, with "timberlake tuesdays," with a bit called "the evolution of end zone dancing." and, basically, just justin and i are doing a bunch of different end zone dances that players could do after they scored a touchdown. all right? so we did, like, the touchdown robots. we did the nuh-uh. ♪ we did the manti te'o on a date. [ laughter ] and then we did the justin timberlake, which is the "bye bye bye." i mean, we had to do that. [ cheers ] a lot of fun. fun bit. it's on youtube if you want to look at it. it was really, really fun. so last week, i issued a challenge to all of the nfl players to actually do one of these dances during a game. now, i know the nfl frowns on this type of celebration. [ laughter ]
>> steve: the no fun league. >> jimmy no fun -- thank you. no fun at all. can i have another buttermilk, please? anyways, i said the first player to actually perform one of our dances that we did during a game, i'll match their fine and donate it to their favorite charity. [ light laughter ] well, this past sunday -- [ cheers and applause ] >> steve: oh! [ sad tuba ] >> jimmy: i think nfl players are all crazy. i think they've all lost their minds. this past sunday -- gosh. detroit lions rookie joseph fauria -- he answered my challenge. check this out. >> and here's the pressure. and there's the pass. and it is caught for the touchdown by joseph fauria. [ applause ]

[ laughter ] he looked way cooler than i did doing it. so as it turns out, it looks like the nfl didn't fine him. but i still want to keep my word, so, joseph, as promised, i'm going to donate $10,000 to the make-a-wish foundation. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] he is a good guy, yeah. thank you for dancing out there. keeping it fun. so, anyways, speaking of justin timberlake there, he's been hanging out at the show every tuesday this month. it's fun having that dude around. he's a talented guy. and justin and i are both pretty big on the twitter. you guys on twitter?

and it's me and scarlet. and he watches too much pornography. and she watches too many romantic hollywood movies. [ light laughter ] and so, they both kind of keep missing each other. >> jimmy: it's sweeter than that sounds.
