Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show run is off to an amazing start — have you seen anything more wonderful in your life than the slew of celebrities who showed up to pay off their $100 bet his first night out? And night number 2 was even better, because One Direction’s Harry Styles made a guest appearance! Well, kind of.
When “Harry” came onstage, the audience found out it was actually SNL superstar and Bridesmaids actress Kristen Wiig done up in a wig masterfully modeled after Harry’s signature ‘do and a suit pretty similar to something our favorite British boybander would wear.
Very convincing, except for one thing: Kristen may or may not have forgotten to bring her British accent. But don’t worry: Jimmy totally called her out on it. In fact, Kristen’s interview proved she knows little to nothing about Harry — not even where he’s from, which we felt was super obvious.
“We were at school, and it was one of those, like, ‘Hey, I sing,’ and then everyone was just kind of like, ‘Let’s go to Harry’s house and start rehearsing,’ and then we sent a tape to RCA,” Kristen-as-Harry explained (horribly inaccurately) when Jimmy asked her how One Direction formed.
Our favorite part? When “Harry” gave a how-to on how he gets his hair so perfect: two blowdryers aimed in different directions. We’ll have to try that.
Sad attempt, Kristen — but you get all the points for hilarity, as always. Check out the video below — you can't miss Harry's performance.
