Jimmy Fallon has had some pretty memorable guests on The Tonight Show, but one of his most recent guests might have taken the cake. On Monday (Oct. 26), Mike Tyson stopped by the show to talk about life and current projects he's working on. Before you knew it, the former boxer was on stage performing his best rendition of Drake's addicting new single, "Hotline Bling," and it's the best thing ever!
If you've never heard "Hotline Bling" or seen the hilarious memes that have been created in its honor, then it's safe to say you've been living under a rock lately. As if playing the song on nearly every popular radio station and club wasn't enough, the Canadian rapper decided to supply fans with visuals to the catchy single and it almost broke the Internet.
As Drake showed off his hypnotic dance moves, memes and videos mimicking his new visuals were simultaneously being created. From him tossing out pepperoni on a large pizza to comparisons made between the rapper and Carlton Banks of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, his footwork is still a topic of conversation a week after the video's release.

During his interview, Fallon couldn't help but show Tyson a full-size copy of a meme that had been made in Tyson's likeness of him singing the song, all while making fun of his infamous lisp. The 41-year-old SNL alum thought it would be a fun idea to bring that meme to life.
Without hesitation, the 49-year-old former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world jumped on the microphone to show off his singing chops. Tyson belted his own version of "Hotline Bling" along with a full dance routine, complete with hip gyrations and excessive hand movements.
Tyson's lyrics might not have been suitable for family programming, so Fallon was forced to cut him off the microphone before things really heated up.
The fun didn't stop there. In The Tonight Show's version of the naughty childhood game "Spin the Bottle," judges from NBC's The Voice played "Spin the Microphone." While Pharrell and Adam Levine put on a show for the crowd, it was Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton who stole the show with their "Hotline Bling" duet.
This isn't the first time a celebrity debuted a karaoke style of Drake's new single and it probably won't be the last. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs on weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST on NBC.
