Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones Channel RiRi and Drake in Another Epic Thanksgiving Holiday Medley.

Back when he was a cast member on Saturday Night Live and before he became Weekend Update co-host, Jimmy Fallon would often appear during the segment to perform parody songs about his favorite holidays: Halloween, Valentine’s Day, even spring break.As has become a holiday tradition, Rashida Jones appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform a medley of the day’s best pop hits turned into holiday songs.

If you somehow managed to overcome your food coma and stay up for Thursday’s “Tonight Show,” Jimmy Fallon was ready and willing to entertain you with the third installment of his post-Thanksgiving tradition: The Holiday Parody Medley – with special guest, Rashida Jones. It was just Fallon, an acoustic guitar, and a roster of pop hits with alternate lyrics (“Sex and Candy” turned into “Eggs and Candy,” for instance). One of the tracks was Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” and in the interview that followed their performance, Jones explained to Fallon the key to perfecting Drake’s oft-mocked dance from the song’s video.

Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones took it upon themselves to turn a load of 2015’s biggest hits into holiday tunes on Thursday, Nov. 24 — and the results were completely amazing. Since 2013, Fallon and the “Parks and Rec” actress have been busting out holiday versions of popular songs on the Thanksgiving night episode of “Late Night” (2013)/”The Tonight Show” (2014-2015). Actress Jones, 39, started the awesome parody-fest with Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” (after tweaking the lyrics to become about turkey and pumpkin pie). Last night, Fallon and Jones took on hits like Taylor Swift‘s “Bad Blood,” Rihanna‘s “B—h Better Have My Money” and the Weeknd‘s “Can’t Feel My Face” (Jones: “I can’t celebrate ’cause I’m a Jew/I got candles/and menorahs/We got Chanukah, I guess that’s cool/If you like latkes, if you like dreidels”).

She was there again on Thursday night, too: Jones returned to perform alongside Fallon, The Roots, and special guests Queen Latifah, and singer Eric Nally from Macklemore’s “Downtown.” The epic singalong that followed included parodies of The Weeknd, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Drake, Bruno Mars, and many more.
