On The Tonight Show Thursday, Jim Parsons played a game with Jimmy Fallon called “Five Second Summaries” in which they had to describe the plot of a film, with the other person guessing, before the clock stopped.
The two easily got Star Wars and La La Land in five seconds, but they had their work cut out for them when the clock was set to three seconds. Parsons had to describe Space Jam and hilariously gave his summary: “Basketball, Shaq, and it’s a cartoon.” Sadly, Shaquille O’Neal was not in Space Jam.
Parsons seemed genuinely distraught by the pressure, which was magnified by the clock being set to only one second. Luckily, he was able to guess the movie Twister from Fallon, simply saying, “Tornado, cow.”
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 8 p.m. on NBC.
