Jimmy Fallon Impersonating Ryan Lochte at the VMAs was the Highlight of Michael Phelps’ Night
Last night at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, Jimmy Fallon decided to do something a little different as he presented the award for Video of the Year.
As soon as Fallon sauntered on stage, it was clear that what we were about to get was not a run of the mill presentation by the late night talk show host, but a full-on impersonation of the somewhat disgraced Olympian Ryan Lochte. The transformation was complete with a tracksuit, silver medal, and bleach blonde hair, and while the bit was hilarious, nobody found it as funny as fellow Olympian Michael Phelps.
The cameras panned to Phelps as soon as Fallon walked on stage and Phelps could be seen grabbing his phone and visibly mouthing “Oh my god!” while attempting to get a video of the late night talk show host. We can only imagine the text message Phelps sent Lochte later that night.
