Even though Mike Tyson is famously sober these days, you do sometimes get the feeling that he’s just moments away from flipping the switch and going right back to the old Mike — you know, the one that finds joy only in beating the absolute shit out of people.
Sure he might’ve shown us with his appearances in Hangover that he’s able to take a joke, but sometimes even when he’s taking the piss out of himself you wonder if he’s still got it in him to flip out completely. Case in point – this bizarre appearance on Fallon including a total butchering of Drake’s track ‘Hotline Bling’:
I’m sure there were a couple moments there where everyone in the studio thought they were going to die. Even Fallon and Questlove were shitting it. You just never know what’s going to happen when Mike Tyson’s around, especially when he’s wearing those shoes which somehow make him look extra insane. I’m just glad everyone made it through that performance/interview alive.
If you haven’t yet cringed at Drake’s old man dance moves in the original track, check that out here.
