Leave it to Henry Winkler to make a Jimmy Fallon interview much, much more watchable. Henry was a guest on The Tonight Show, and while Jimmy did what Jimmy does (threaten to put Velveeta out of business by bringing on the fake cheesiness), Henry charmed everyone with his GILF beard.
During Henry’s virtual appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the 74-year-old national treasure debuted a luscious new Zaddy look care of a snowy white Santa beard and mutton chops. On top of giving the down-low vapors to those with a Santa and The Fonz fetish, Henry made it worse (but really, better) by pulling out the original leather jacket he wore on Happy Days.
According to A.V. Club, Henry talked about how iconically cool he became as a result of playing Fonzi in the 70s, but claims he doesn’t feel that cool anymore, despite my disagreement. (Actually, Henry tried to talk but he kept getting drowned out by Jimmy laughing hysterically at his own jokes). Henry had a few more original sports jackets and blazers to share before talking about another season of Barry, and how he hopes Bill Hader will let him work that beard on the show.
Upon hearing this, Jimmy then busted into a fit of eye-roll-inducing manufactured excitement and laughed himself hoarse until they had to take a break. When they came back, Jimmy was still drying the tears he had cried during the commercial while pitched over in LOLs. He’s like if a laugh track was a person. I mean, can’t we just make Henry the new host of The Tonight Show? Are there any rules anymore?
