Jay Leno discovers world’s best karaoke couple at the pump
So you think you and your significant other are pretty good at karaoke? Well, you’ve got nothing on Will and Monifa Sims, who delivered an impromptu gas station concert that was so impressive Jay Leno invited them on “The Tonight Show” on Wednesday.
It all started out as one of the show’s recurring gags, “Pumpcast News,” in which actor Tim Stack, pretending to be a cable news anchor on a gas station TV, startles customers by speaking to them.
While most people tend to jump in the air or scream comically and then move on, “The Tonight Show” struck gold with the Simses, a couple with serious musical talent and an even greater sense of fun.
Watch their pump-side renditions of “Living on a Prayer” and “Sweet Dreams,” above, then check out their encore performance on “The Tonight Show,” below. You won’t be sorry, but you may just want to make the Simses your new BFFs.
