Video: Russell Crowe and Jimmy Fallon Sing ‘Balls in Your Mouth’
In honor of Earth Day and the five-year anniversary of the BP Oil Spill, Jimmy Fallon and Russell Crowe performed the protest song about tarballs: “Balls in Your Mouth,” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Some of the words of the new hit song, “Balls in Your Mouth” include,
The oil spill by BP has left tar balls all over the sea. Don’t go swimming down in the south, unless you want tar balls in your mouth.
Crowe then joined in by playing with Fallon and singing along to the chorus,
Balls in your mouth, balls in your mouth, don’t swim in the ocean you’ll get balls in your mouth. BIG FAT BALLS.
Both Fallon and Crowe then went into the audience and had everyone clapping along and singing the chorus.
Before singing together, Russell Crowe sat down with Jimmy Fallon and spoke about the first time he knew he was famous and the terrible jobs he performed before becoming an actor. He spoke about being in Rome and shopping. He came out of the store and the whole street was packed and he had no idea what was going on. He asked the police what happened and was surprised to hear, “you, the gladiator, you are what’s going on.”
Crowe spoke about working and paying his own way. Before fame, he worked at a car rental company in the 80’s. He used to drive the BMW’s to the car wash place, four blocks away. He sent the car through the car wash while it was in drive and when he jumped back in the car, he was hit by the car wash roller and the BMW also got a bit messy. Needless to say, he wasn’t asked back to that job.
