Would you recognize Ryan Lewis if he wasn’t standing next to Macklemore?
That’s a question that Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show staff decided to explore on last night’s show with the latest installment of the “Man on the Street” segment.
During the clip, Lewis wore no disguise (unless you count his eyeglasses) and took to the streets of New York City to ask hip-hop fans facts about himself…except none of them realized they were actually talking to the Grammy-winning musician!
When asked what exactly it is that Lewis does, one man answered, “I thought he was a producer…I always see him on stage when Macklemore’s performing. It seems like he’s doing something with computers and whatnot…I’ve really got no clue though.”
At one point, Lewis even held up a photo of Macklemore and himself, challenging interviewees to identify “Ryan Lewis” and asking who they thought was better looking. We’ll just say the answers and the reactions were priceless!
The end of the segment also featured a cameo from a very special guest…but we won’t spoil the surprise!
