Mr. Plum in the billiards room with the candlestick? Hmmm. How about Ding-Dongs the elf in the starship with the doinker? That seems much more believable don’t you think?
While visiting the Tonight Show promoting his new film Passengers, Chris Pratt participated in Jimmy Fallon’s new skit called Mad Libs Theater and the results are amazing.
The way that Mad Libs Theater works is Jimmy asks his guest to give him a bunch of words that fit into a category such as an adjective, body part, an animal, a measure of time, etc.. These words are filled into a story that Jimmy and his guest act out immediately after. He had previously done this with Benedict Cumberbatch and it was absolutely hysterical. I’ve included that video below as well.
Pratt was an excellent choice for this sketch as most of his answers did not disappoint. Some of them included:
- Silly Word: Doinker
- Animal: Gerbils
- Dessert: Ding-Dongs
- Year: 200 A.D.
- Celebrity: Jennifer Lawrence
- Plant: Apple Tree
- Adjective: Demure
- Pet Name: Pickles
The story takes place in Santa’s Workshop where Santa (Pratt) has accused his elf Ding-Dongs (Fallon) of stealing his favorite toy, the doinker. Watch the video below to see if Ding-Dongs is actually guilty of the crime.
I’d challenge you to try and do a better job at keeping a straight face than these two did, but it’s nearly impossible.
Here is the Mad Libs Theater with Benedict Cumberbatch for your viewing pleasure as well. [embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kM9Wuzj4k24[/embedyt]
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
