New Canaan's Brian Williams Scores Hit With 'Tonight Show' Viral Rap Video

  • Comment

NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- "NBC Nightly News" host Brian Williams of New Canaan is a "delightful" rapper -- and he didn't even know it.

The comedic minds at "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" cut together dozens of clips of the straight-laced Williams making it look as if he were rapping the 1979 hip-hop classic "Rapper's Delight."

Edited clips of fellow NBC anchor Lester Holt join Williams later in the video along with a cameo from Greenwich's Kathie Lee Gifford.

Williams has flashed a dry sense of humor in the past, appearing many times on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart."
