Jimmy Fallon got pals Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig together for a hilarious video chat sketch on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The sketch was a parody of soap operas called, appropriately for a pandemic, The Longest Days of Our Lives. Fallon, Wiig and Ferrell played multiple characters caught in a love triangle.
It was, thankfully, absolutely ridiculous. The actors changed characters carelessly (on purpose), broke character with giggles and had the silliest of slap fights. Ferrell’s costume changes, in particular, had the actors (and me) cracking up. Enjoy the levity for a moment.
Jimmy shares a clip of a soap opera that has adapted to social distancing by having actors (Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig) film their scenes in quarantine using video chat.
