Oh. Em. Geeee! Jack and Jimmy as Gary and Nuno!!! Ha-lair-ee-ous!!
I’m sitting in a coffee shop in Ireland. I’m drinking Irish black tea and writing a proposal to speak and train on communications for an upcoming international tech sales conference. But then – ineffective multi-tasking alert! – I notice that my sister, who lives back home in the States, has sent me an email with a video attached. The subject line is “Watch This Now!” Obedient sister that I am, I do. And Whoosh! Down the Rabbit Hole of Distraction I go.
The video is from this week’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black covering the 1990 music video “More Than Words” by Extreme.
I start laughing out loud like a mad woman.
The twenty-something barista guy is now looking over at me like, “what the heck is so funny…” And I jump up and say …
ME: (still laughing) “You know that ‘More Than Words’ video?’ from that 90s band Extreme?'”
HIM: “Er, no, not really.”
ME: (no longer laughing) “Well, okay.. So, you know this American late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon…?”
HIM: “Nope. But I’ve heard of Jay Leno.”
ME: “Yeah, Leno retired. This is the guy who replaced him..Okay, so what about the American actor, Jack Black…?”
HIM: “Oh yeah, ‘School Rock’ or whatever, right? He was funny a long time ago.”
ME: “Yeah, well, he’s still pretty funny.. And anyways, well, those guys are singing a cover of that song from Extre..… oh never mind….”
Okay… break over. Back to work!
Lesson learned. Stay on task. Watch videos after work.
