British actor Daniel Radcliffe ended his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on October 28 by rapping Blackalicious classic, Alphabet Aerobics. The former Harry Potter star was on the show to promote his new movie, Horns. However Fallon was taken aback by Radcliffe’s claim that he knew every word of Alphabet Aerobics. Radcliffe confirmed sheepishly that he has an affinity for especially wordy songs like Alphabet Aerobics. Fallon asked him to prove it in front of a live studio audience–and Potter threw down. The result is fantastic and Twitter is obsessing over the performance.
It should be noted that Radcliffe has experience rhyming on TV as well having previously impressed Rihanna and actor Colin Farrell while on BBC chat show, The Graham Norton Show in 2010.
Then Radcliffe sang the rather more geeky 1959 song, The Elements which revolves around the periodic table.
Check out what the Twitter world had to say:
27 people didn't like that Daniel Radcliffe rapping clip. 27 PEOPLE. Presumably furious he wasn't addressing ethics in games journalism.
