The Thursday Buzz: Jimmy Fallon Slaps Around Bob Costas and More

Jimmy Fallon and most of the “Late Night” gang are out in Indianapolis for the Super Bowl (Deion Sanders subbed in for announcer Steve Higgins), and to kick things off, Fallon wanted to do an Indy-centric version of the segment “Head Swap.”

Of course, you know what happens when Fallon tries to do “Head Swap.” First he can’t figure out the Indy office’s WiFi password so he can find the images he needs, and before you know it, he’s drag racing on the Indianapolis Speedway and slapping a tied-up Bob Costas to keep him quiet. Those darned WiFi passwords can be so hard to figure out, you know? Click on the video above to see how Fallon got to slap Costas around.
