Here is something we never knew we needed.
The two sang for the video, staying insanely true to their source material and bringing it all — the ribbons, the hair, the eye patch — making their authentic re-creation ridiculously absurd by today’s music video standards.
The “Avengers: Endgame” star portrayed the group’s lead vocalist, the late Pete Burns, and proved he can rock eyeliner and act out a song’s lyrics with his hands like it’s no one’s business. Fallon took on the role of the late Steve Coy, the band’s drummer, and somehow managed to pull off goth-kid indifference without laughing while wearing a ludicrous red wig.
Rudd later mentioned he talked to his kids via FaceTime while he and Fallon were shooting the video and “traumatized them.”
“My son immediately said … ‘Oh, my God, you look like a ‘Real House Housewife of Atlanta.’ Then he said, ‘No ‘Orange County,’” the actor recounted.
Rudd also said the Wu-Tang Clan was on set the day they taped the video but he was too humiliated in his costume to actually meet them.
“I wanted to meet Wu-Tang Clan so badly,” Rudd recalled. “But I wouldn’t leave the room.”
