If you enjoyed Russell Crowe's singing in Australian rock band 30 Odd Foot of Grunts (unlikely) or as Javert in "Les Mis" (even more unlikely), you might find yourself asking "Can Russell Crowe maybe also do a song which commemorates the 5-year anniversary of the BP oil spill?" In fact he can, and he did on "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" last night.

As a tribute to the planet for Earth Day, and to the tar balls still lingering from that horrific BP incident, Crowe and Fallon performed the sing-a-long "Balls in Your Mouth." Like, balls. Get it?
