NBC Nightly News anchor, and funnyman, Brian Williams has done it again - sort of - with another rapping the news remix on Jimmy Fallon's late night show.
On Monday's The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the host welcomed Williams as a guest and presented another remix of the anchorman's on-air words edited together to make it appear he was rapping a popular song.
Williams had nothing more to do with the compilation than showing up for work and reading the news each night. A remix of Snoop Dogg's 1996 song "Gin and Juice," like the other Williams remixes before it, was meticulously put together by Tonight Show staffer John MacDonald.
In February, during Fallon's first week as new host of The Tonight Show, Williams' remix of Sugar Hill Gang's 1979 "Rapper's Delight" debuted and has garnered nearly 9 million hits on YouTube.
The latest edition features cameos from fellow NBC news personalities Natalie Morales, Lester Holt, Richard Engel, and Kate Snow.
