Jimmy Fallon and Naomi Watts take turns trying to figure out what the other is saying by reading their lips and it does not go well at all!
We've seen some ridiculous and outrageous guesses before during Jimmy Fallon's "Tonight Show" Whisper Challenge game, but his guess with Naomi Watts has to take the cake for most amazing. If only it had been right.
The host and Watts were overall pretty bad in this game where one covers their ears with headphones and tries to make out what the other is whispering by reading their lips. Let's just say, it's not as easy as many movies might make it look.
And yet, we have to give props for a pretty good guess, even if it was hilariously off, when Watts was trying to get Fallon to say "Tuna Noodle Casserole."
At first, Chiwetel Ejiofor sounds like a terrible guess, but then when you really break down the syllables of the actor's name and the dish, they're remarkably similar and it's easy to see how he could have thought that might be it.
Plus, Fallon and Watts were clearly more familiar with the acclaimed actor than they are with the food dish. When Fallon finally gave up after "Do you hear Julie?" and "Do you like to do it?" were also not correct answers, they neither one seemed impressed with the real answer.
"Tuna Noodle Casserole?" Watts said with a grimace. "Like, I don’t even know what that is. It sounds awful."
And yet it's a dish that's been around for decades, beginning in the Pacific Northwest in the early 1900s before reaching its peak as a Midwest staple in the 1950s thanks to the power of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup. Apparently, it never made its way to Watts' England home, nor Fallon's New England base.
One thing that does exist in both is walkie-talkies, so there was really no excuse for why Watts couldn't quite close the deal on that one. And she was so close throughout, tossing out phrases like "walking turkey," "rocking dolly" and "shower please."
And by tossing out, we mean hilariously talking in a very loud shout. The music Fallon was pumping through those headphones must have been very loud indeed, for both of them were shouting while wearing them.
For the final round, it was loud and clear that the guess was "Hungry Potato." Check out the video to see what Watts was trying to guess, and whether or not they ever got it together and got one right. Or perhaps more importantly, did Watts totally cheat?
