Tom Cruise Crushes the Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face" on 'Fallon'

Professional stuntman and amateur couch-jumper Tom Cruise has a little film, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, out this Friday. Meaning our dude Frank T.J. Mackey is making the press rounds, and press rounds in this post-Letterman, post-post-Leno world mean improvising a few viral videos with a few guys named Jimmy in the span of a week.

So it was that on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, Tom Cruise lip synced the Weeknd's summer-dominating "Can't Feel My Face." If you're at all serious about living a life worth living, watch it now.

Hard to tell if Mr. Cruise had heard "Can't Feel My Face" before he showed up at Fallon, but does anyone care? Color us dying to see TC lip syncing, "Often, often, girl I do this often / Make that p***y pop and do it how I want it" now. Or just to see him redo that "Old Time Rock and Roll" scene from Risky Business, as the Roots teased but totally didn't follow through with.

Jimmy then hit the audience with the Rolling Stones' "Undercover of the Night," Tom with Meat Loaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light." Forget the dad-music-iness of it and watch Ethan Hunt wild alllll the way out at the 6:15 mark, throwing the mic stand and applying himself with the fervency of a man hanging off the door of an airplane mid-takeoff. Wait.
