Paul Rudd lip-syncing to Queen is so good that even Jimmy Fallon can't compete

The Jimmy Fallon Celebrity Cool Happy Happy Fun Wow Time Hour, also known as "The Tonight Show," continues to create sugary comedy bits well into its second week; on Tuesday night, Fallon hosted Paul Rudd and challenged the "Anchorman 2" actor to a lip-sync-off.

Rudd went first, dancing and mouthing lyrics to Tina Turner's "You Better Be Good to Me," which Fallon challenged with Foreigner's "Jukebox Hero." Though the '80s ballad brought Fallon to his knees, the stage was not quite prepared for what was about to happen next: Rudd's second act, an energetic, hip-thrusting, head-shaking rendition of Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now."

Fallon, who has hosted many-a-lip-sync-offs in his day, was overwhelmed by what he had just witnessed and did what any honorable host would do: conceded.
