WATCH: Brian Williams Raps Sir Mix-A-Lot's 'Baby Got Back' on 'Tonight Show'

Posted: Updated:

(TODAY) -- Brian Williams may be a veteran news anchor, but "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon and his team have proven yet again that despite the newsman's skill at delivering hard news, Williams can also drop a mad beat — with a little bit of creative editing help, that is.

The "Tonight" gang on Monday remixed various clips of the "Nightly News" anchor's broadcasts to have him "perform" what might be the best Brian Williams rap yet: Sir Mix-A-Lot's 1992 hit "Baby Got Back." Several of the TODAY show ladies even made cameos in the video, with Kathie Lee Gifford offering one of the best lines of all.

The clip had the TODAY anchors giggling at the lascivious lyrics delivered by their co-workers, especially the "interesting language," as Tamron Hall called it, from Gifford.

"Normally, they just take one word from the newscasts, but there was actually a night where Brian said, 'Shake that healthy butt,'" Matt Lauer pointed out.

Viewers were delighted by the video featuring the NBC personalities.

Williams' previous efforts on "The Tonight Show" include Snoop Dogg's "Nuthin' But a G Thang" and "Gin and Juice," "Rapper's Delight" with TODAY's Lester Holt, Warren G's "Regulate," NWA's "Straight Outta Compton" and more. The newsman also slow jammed the news on several occasions with Fallon on "Late Night."

"The Tonight Show" airs weeknights at 10:35 on NBC.

    (KCEN) – While the homeless veteran count is dropping nationwide, Killeen and Temple are seeing a spike in the number of homeless veterans – and it's not just individual veterans. “We're seeing more homeless families, and we've seen an increase in that over the last few months because of the downsizing of the military,” Paula Wood said. “It's very sad to look a family in the eye and say do you have a friend or family member you can stay with because it's going to take a month to get you re-ho...More >>

    Federal Judge Strikes Down Key Part of Texas Abortion Law

    (NBC) -- A federal judge Friday threw out new Texas abortion restrictions that would have effectively closed more than a dozen clinics in the state. U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel sided with clinics that sued over one of the most disputed measures of a sweeping anti-abortion bill signed by Republican Gov. Rick Perry in 2013. The ruling stops new restrictions that would have left just seven abortion facilities open in Texas by Sept. 1; there are currently 19 providers in Texas, according to th...More >>
