After taking on “Rapper’s Delight” and “Gin and Juice,” America’s favorite rapping news anchor is back again today with another forced rendition of a hip-hop classic — this time Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” All in the name of the inherent joy at putting dirty words in a seemingly stodgy 55-year-old’s mouth, the team at The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon created another one of those Brian Williams robotic rap supercuts. The joke should be wearing thin at this point, but it all pays off here when Kathie Lee Gifford makes a brief cameo. In any case, these 75 seconds would be a whole lot funnier if Williams weren’t such a good sport about it.
