It's officially the most wonderful time of the year. Why? Because Jimmy Fallon said so. Check out the late-night star in his new holiday-themed commercial for Frito-Lay, where he hilariously acts out ten different characters.
Jimmy Fallon's latest endeavor involves a lot of singing, endless chips, and a special appearance by his family. That's right - the comedian was joined on-screen by his daughters, Frances Cole and Winnie Rose, and his wife, Nancy Juvonen. The result is an adorable and LOL-worthy commercial for Frito-Lay's Share More Joy holiday campaign.
But Fallon revealed to People that the family commercial almost didn't happen. The Tonight Show host admitted he had his doubts about having his daughters in the limelight. "I go, 'I don't know, man.' Not about them getting [in] the business, but I don't know if they're good actors," Jimmy said. "They're not actor kids. I don't know if they're going to be good; this might waste everyone's time."
Luckily for us, Fallon's wife thought having the girls in the commercial was a good idea - and clearly got her way. "And then my wife, who really doesn't like to be on camera, she's more behind the scenes, she's a producer ... but I asked her, I'm like, 'What do you think?'" he recalled.
"And she was like, "I think you gotta, the kids are cute. If the kids are doing it, I'm going to do it too, so let's just do it as a family,'" Jimmy continued. "It turned out to be great. They were good actors. My girls got a good laugh." It looks like dad's got some competition coming his way in Hollywood.
The father-of-two also gave an inside scoop into life in the Fallon-Juvonen household during the holiday season. Spoiler alert: there are a lot of gifts involved. "I spoil them a little bit," Jimm admitted of the royal treatment his kids get during Christmas. "Just more than I had when I was a kid," he added.
You can catch more of this funny guy come November 25 during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, where Frito-Lay will officially launch their Share More Joy campaign. Fallon also stars in NBC's 5 More Sleeps 'Til Christmas, premiering on November 26.
