The Tonight Show: Bar Refaeli Super Bowl
Someone tell NBC is too early to start promoting the 2014 Winter Olympics. Instead, it’s better that they focus on reliving the Super Bowl. The Tonight Show monologue also included jokes about the end of Saturday mail delivery and McDonald’s Fish McBites.
Jay Leno was backstage with tonight’s guest Bar Refaeli in hopes that he could recreate her must-discussed Super Bowl commercial. Once he closed his eyes and puckered, up, she swapped in her infamous co-star, the nerdy actor.
Tonight Show: Super Bowl Jerseys
Jay Leno kicked off his monologue by noting that commemorative Super Bowl jerseys are printed for both teams before the games. Apparently the unused jerseys belonging to the losers are shipped to third world countries to be used as clothes.
As New Orleans prepares for another blackout at the upcoming Mardi Gras celebrations, Jay Leno noted that PETA is protesting Beyonce for her leather outfit during the halftime show.
Jay Leno: Calvin Klein Super Bowl Commercial
The star of the Calvin Klein Super Bowl ad spoke to ABC 7 in an interview. The underwear ad focused primarily on 21-year-model Matthew Terry, but in this joke, Jay traded an unattractive man in place of the now-famous body.
He also highlighted some celebrity cameos from this year’s Super Bowl ads, including Psy, Usher, and Stevie Wonder. For comic effect, they joked that Madonna was in the Taco Bell Viva Young spot.
The Tonight Show: Drone Strikes
In light of the US Justice Department’s conclusion that drone strikes can be ordered on American citizens, Jay joked that Rush Limbaugh would now come out in favor of Obamacare.
A new study concluded that people working less could slow the rate of global warming. “President Obama’s economic policy is also his climate change policy,” Leno said.
Tonight Show: USPS Ends Saturday Mail Delivery
Have you heard the news that the US Postal Service is dropping Saturday mail delivery, effective in August 2013. Jay Leno speculated that the dawn of email was a contributing factor.
After selling Current TV to Al Jazeera, Al Gore has a higher net worth than former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, but Jay said this proves money cannot get you a personality.
Jay Leno: Marijuana Reform
Democrats are reportedly pushing marijuana laws to increase revenue for the country. Jay Leno said he did not think was the solution to the government’s problems. He also recalled the Washington state search for a marijuana expert. “How slow is that office going to be?” he wondered.
The Tonight Show: King Richard’s Bones
Jay also showed a photo of the supposed skeleton of King Richard, which was recently uncovered. He thought it looked more like Keith Richards.
Gas prices have hit a record high for February, jumping 17 cents in a week. Jay’s gas jokes took shots at Ray Lewis, Donald Trump, Bill Maher, and others.
Tonight Show: Air Asia Quiet Rows
Air Asia now offers seven “quiet rows” during their flights. Jay Leno said that is a better idea for the entire plane, suggesting that overhead bins be reserved for loud children.
An estimated 60% of Facebook users have taken a break from the social network, which Jay suggested would lead to increased productivity.
Jay Leno: Radio Shack & McDonald’s Fish McBites
Radio Shack is shuttering 500 stores in the US in 2013. I didn’t know there were that many Radio Shack stores left, because as Jay noted, they are associated with antiquated technology.
McDonald’s Fish McBites are a new product offering from the popular fast food chain. “How bad is a fish if it’s not even good enough to get into the Filet of Fish sandwich?” Jay wondered.
Tonight Show: Harvard Cheating & Donald Trump
At Harvard, 60 students were suspended from Harvard for cheating on a final exam in a class about Congress, but Jay said that might help them get jobs there.
Fox News showed the explosive renovations being completed on parts of the New York City subway system. Jay juxtaposed that with a clip of Donald Trump being interviewed in his office, and now I wonder if Trump will try to sue him next.
