Brian Williams slow jams the news on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Has any news anchor exercised his comedy chops more frequently or hilariously than Brian Williams? First, he's popping up on 30 Rock and now he's slow-jammin' the news on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Backed by the smooth-funk of the Roots, watch as Williams tackles the Wisconsin protests with journalistic integrity and sexy aplomb. He also shows off his encyclopedic knowledge of early '90s R&B groups in the process. All in a day's work for Brian Will.I.Am.

As a side note, is anybody else shocked to find out Late Night with Jimmy Fallon is celebrating its second anniversary on the air? It seems like just yesterday he was replacing Conan.
