Calgarian challenges Jimmy Fallon to lip sync battle in viral video
CALGARY- Watch out Jimmy Fallon: there just might be a new lip sync champ.
Calgarian Lincoln Constable has issued a challenge to The Tonight Show host, following a string of lip sync battles pitting Fallon against other celebrities.
Calling himself “just an average guy from Canada,” Constable posted a video on YouTube where he launches into a number of songs by everyone from Kanye West to the Scissor Sisters.
As soon as he starts off with Fleetwood Mac’s “Everywhere,” it’s apparent he’s got skills. The video was posted Wednesday and has already had about 32,000 views.
“I never thought it would garner this much attention at all, it’s amazing!” Constable told Global News. “The feedback has been astronomically positive.”
The 26-year-old WestJet employee says it all started off as a joke, but now that it’s got so much attention he hopes the video will help get him to New York City, where he can face off against Fallon himself.
While Constable lip syncs through most of the four minute video, his skills don’t stop there. He also sings in a band called Hair of the Ghost Town Gentleman, and says he loves music from almost every genre.
Even if Fallon doesn’t bring him to New York, Constable says the video was well worth putting together.
“If I brightened someone’s day with it, then I’ve done my job.”
