Dan White toys with Jimmy Fallon and Questlove’s imaginations with a box and a ball of yarn

February 2, 2018

Theory11 teased “something crazy” for last night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but I don’t think anyone expected something like the video embedded above. 

In the nine minute trick, Dan White plays a little game with Jimmy Fallon and Questlove, making the two of them reach into a box, feeling around for the object inside, and describing what they think it is. White then reveals the object to be something completely different, like a soup ladle or a ball of yarn. This continues until White places Questlove’s phone in the box. Things get weird from there.

You can see it in Questlove’s face at the end. He knows what’s coming but doesn’t want to believe it.
