NEW YORK, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Jimmy Fallon's first week behind the Tonight Show desk has already produced a few memorable web-ready videos, including his "Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing" bit with Will Smith and a ragtime cover of R.Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)."

On Wednesday, the late-night host managed to work news clips of NBC anchors Brian Williams -- who is presumably too busy covering the Olympics -- and Lester Holt into the lyrics of "Rapper's Delight."

Williams has yet to respond to the gimmick, though he's famously affable in interviews and would probably have been game to do it himself.

Holt issued this Twitter response:

"Love the @FallonTonight Rappers Delight mashup but don't know if I'll ever be able to anchor a newscast again without thinking about it."
