"It's actually a funny story - about a year ago, I found this old VHS tape in my basement and it had a bunch of clips from this fitness duo called 'The Fungo Brothers,'" he said.
"Oh I remember The Fungo Brothers," quipped Fallon. "They were really ahead of their time."
Calling on his "Computer," Fallon then launched clips of The Fungo Brothers (suspiciously looking like Johnson and Fallon) promoting Thigh Crunchers (aka Thigh Masters), a B&W exercise video for "The Twist," and finally everyone's favorite "The Jack Weight" (aka Shake Weight). It's not obvious as first, but in-between each clip, Fallon and Johnson race between costumes. As the skits continue, the pair become more disheveled and out-of-breath. It's hilarious - and yet another reminder of why Fallon was a perfect successor for Leno.
