Hard times have fallen upon Downton Sixbey, the prim British estate within Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’s studio. Thanks to the Earl’s iffy investments – in the Shake Weight and a restaurant chain called Thank Heaven Friday Is Here, or THFIH – the manor’s residents must resort to cost-cutting measures like sharing a single glass of wine in the grossest way possible and recycling tired, no-longer-topical jokes. (“Change replacement refs to Honey Boo Boo. Perhaps she tries to eat the football because she thinks it’s a piece of chocolate.”)
But don’t lose hope, fair ladies and kind sirs! There’s a light at the end of the corridor, in the form of a proposal that just might shake Sixbey to its very foundation. And more to the point: Unlike the last few episodes of Downton Abbey, this video won’t make you sob until you have no tears left, as long as the sight of Fred Armisen sucking down a goblet full of spit doesn’t make you cry.
