When Jimmy Fallon walked on stage at last night’s Video Music Awards, there was absolutely no question who he was impersonating.
Rocking bleached blond hair, a team USA tracksuit and an Olympic medal, Fallon had the audience cracking up as he poked fun at Ryan Lochte.
“I directed all five nominees,” Fallon joked. “What an amazing year I’ve had! I taught Drake the ‘Hotline Bling’ dance. I made Lemonade with Queen Bey.”
“Who had the best video of the year? I can’t tell you that. They’re all so great and so talented, I could never choose,” he added. “I couldn’t tell you even if there was a gun to my head…which there isn’t.”
Of course, the camera managed to find Lochte’s teammate Michael Phelps in the crowd as this was all going down, and the 23-time gold medal winner’s reaction said it all.
Mouthing “Oh my God,” Phelps scrambled for his phone and immediately began snapping photos of the Tonight Show host.
Recently, Phelps opened up about Lochte’s Rio controversy, telling People that he hopes his fellow Olympian can learn from the situation.
“Ryan and I have been teammates forever and it’s always hard to see a friend and a competitor going through a hard time like this – I know what it feels like. I’ve been through it before,” Phelps said.
“Hopefully he can come out of this a better person,” he added. “I’ve reached out to him a couple times and I think he understands a lot. He will be able to grow from this.”
