“I’m so pumped to be on Facebook Live, chatting with you, the voters,” he continues in character. “Now, I know there are a lot of questions out there about me like, what are your ideas? What do you bring to the table? And I’m going to answer them all right here, even if I have to miss my morning routine of drinking a bathtub full of 5-Hour Energy.”
The new series sees Fallon’s O’Rourke producing a video on every social media platform in order to get the word out about his presidential run in 2020 — including MySpace.
The first episode sees him taking questions from the public such as, “Hey Beto, if you couldn’t be in public service, what would you do with your time? Fallon replies, “Well, if I couldn’t be in public service, I’d probably just go back to my old job of being your aunt’s hot boyfriend. You know, the one who makes everyone go, ‘Damn, Aunt Rita. How’d you land that?'”
The comedian continues, “Or if that’s not an option, I’d just star in commercials for Just for Men Touch of Gray. Man I’m aging…grays-fully.”
The late-night host’s impersonation of the Democratic candidate features an animated presence, fast-talking and a variety of hand gestures to get the points across. Behind him in the video, two “Beto for America” posters are visible on the wall.
