Little Big Town—Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet—found themselves in a precarious situation as the visited Jimmy Fallon last night (Nov. 14) on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
The band was there to perform their new song, “Better Man,” but as most guests learn upon arrival, they are lured into some kind of made of game from the mind of Jimmy Fallon. The game they took part in was called Stranger Strings—a play on the Netflix original series Stranger Things. Leave it to Jimmy to find a way to incorporate silly string into a sketch.
The game is simple. The rules are as follows—as told by Jimmy Fallon in the video.
“Before the show we all wrote down a few facts about ourselves that no one else knows,”Jimmy began. “Those facts are on these cards. We also have these full cans of silly string. We will take turns reading a card, then we’ll count to three and everyone sprays silly string at the person they think wrote that card. Then we will reveal who actually wrote it. It’s like a getting to know you game.”
In this bit we got to learn a little more about one of our favorite bands. We learned the person who won a statewide modeling competition at 18 years old; who ditched the cops; who can count to 10 in Korean and who can do a mean Michael McDonald impression.
