Jimmy Fallon took things to the next level in his life and in eating. How? He went to Olive Garden for the first time. Yes, the very first time. He had never been to the famous restaurant chain before. Thankfully that all changed recently, and The Tonight Show was there to capture the occasion. Who does the universe have to thank for this seismic event? Apparently, Olive Garden enthusiast Post Malone. Check out their hilarious visit in the clip below:
Okay, this is one of the funniest bits Jimmy Fallon has ever done on The Tonight Show! As a fan of Fallon, that is saying something. He and Post Malone work well off one another and Fallon’s impassioned energy only adds further vibrancy to things. As an ardent Olive Garden fan, Post Malone knows how to get the best out of the restaurant’s experience. So, he shows Fallon the ropes. It is tough to pick a standout moment due to the entire segment being so good.
There is Jimmy Fallon’s recurring joke about whether you pay for anything when you go to Olive Garden. The conversation that he and Post Malone share at the restaurant is also tremendous fun. The moment that Fallon correctly predicts whether Post Malone is a ketchup or mustard fan is brilliant.
In the clip, Jimmy Fallon also proves it was not a one-time thing either. He follows it up by correctly guessing the ketchup/mustard preferences of a guy Post Malone pulls over. Fallon did not leave the surprises there.
He also produced a basket full of croutons and had the staff do Olive Garden’s traditional birthday celebration for Post Malone. Spoiler: it was not actually Malone’s birthday. The essence was still there though. As if that was not enough, Jimmy Fallon then produced an incredible legal document.
According to Jimmy Fallon, he acquired the rights to Olive Garden’s epic slogan — “When you’re here, your family.” That is after the restaurant had moved on from using it themselves. After sharing this surprising news, Fallon followed suit with another revelation. He was signing the rights over to Post Malone!
The emotional scene ended with Post Malone signing the document. Nice! It is impossible to imagine Jimmy Fallon, or as Post Malone called him, “Jimothy,” possibly topping his first time at Olive Garden. This segment also makes you think that Fallon could branch out with another show. It could be one in which he visits well-known restaurants with celebrities. Not boutique eateries, rather IHOP, Chili’s, Applebee’s, and Outback Steakhouse, among others. Yours truly would certainly tune in.
