and featuring the legendary roots crew. >> questlove: 460! woo! >> steve: and now, here he is, jimmy fallon! ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, my goodness! that's what you want! hi! [ cheers and applause ] electric! electric crowd right here in new york city, right here tonight. welcome to "the tonight show," everybody. you made it. this is it. [ cheers and applause ] that's why -- this is the best. the best. thank you guys so much.
here's what everyone is talking about, you guys. of course it's the big announcement from the ted cruz campaign, officially naming carly fiorina as his running mate. yeah. [ laughter ] very popular. they've already run into a a little trouble, because apparently, the ted cruz campaign failed to buy the website named cruzfiorina.com before someone else did. yeah, and they begged the site's owner to let them buy it, but he just said -- [ as trump ] not happening. [ laughter and applause ] i'm not letting it happen, okay? i want to build a firewall and make them pay for it. after appearing together as running mates, ted cruz and carly fiorina even started releasing some of their campaign slogans. check this out. first there's "cruz/fiorina, the number three and number eight choice for america." [ laughter and applause ] >> steve: there we go, truth in advertising, yeah. >> jimmy: that's kind of got a a little ring to it, little zip. yeah. >> steve: gotta love that. >> jimmy: next there's "cruz/fiorina, sim
[ laughter and applause ] not bad. >> steve: yeah, not a bad logo. come on. >> jimmy: these are all useable. and finally there's "cruz/fiorina, we sound a a little like two ford compact cars." [ laughter and applause ] the new ford fiorina. [ laughter ] >> steve: drive a cruz. >> jimmy: the new ford cruz. you'll be driving around in this four cylinder. >> steve: tape decks galore. reel to reel and eight track. >> jimmy: two cigarette lighters. [ laughter ] guys, get this, according to "time" magazine, ted cruz aired almost 50 campaign ads during reruns of "the sound of music live." yeah, it's not that surprising, since cruz has talked about how much he loves the musical. he loves it. you can tell he loves it just by watching his speeches. i mean, look. >> these are a few of my favorite things. washington. reagan. and the soviet nuclear weapons program. taxes and reagan and green eggs and ham.
deficits. jfk and human beings. these are a few of my favorite things. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: beautiful. of course, the other candidates are still on the campaign trail. in fact, last night donald trump tweeted from indiana that he was staying at a holiday inn express, and said it was "not bad." [ light laughter ] which i believe is just one of their ads, "holiday inn express: not bad." >> steve: not bad. [ applause ] >> jimmy: not great. >> steve: not bad. >> jimmy: did you see this? during his foreign policy speech yesterday, donald trump mispronounced tanzania and called it "tanzainia." then melania was like, "that's nothing. my name is actually kathryn." [ laughter and applause ] [ as trump ] "zip it." this is causing a little controversy, here. the city of oxford, alabama just passed a law that makes it illegal to use any bathroom that doesn't correspond to the gender on your birth certificate.
which, of course, is bad news for transgender people and also anyone who has ever had to pee while not carrying their birth certificate. [ laughter and applause ] usually i bring it with me, but i think it's home in a safe or a box. guys, this is very exciting. we have less than 100 days to go until the summer olympics. [ cheers and applause ] that's right, it's less than 100 days until people at home in sweatpants eating potato chips are like, "i could do that." [ laughter and applause ] i'll do running and jumping, all this stuff. actually, yesterday, athletes from team usa kicked off the countdown to the summer olympics right here in times square. [ cheers andpplause ] yeah. it got weird when times square elmo said, "psst, need some tips for passing your drug test?" [ cheers and applause ] we have a great show. give it up for the roots!
