Jimmy Fallon, The Roots celebrate ‘This Olympics' with parody song

Jimmy Fallon has officially kicked off the start of the 2020 Olympics with an iconic parody song alongside The Roots.

The song in question, This Olympics, showcases the American patriotic spirit and is a parody straight from Florida Georgia Line and Nelly’s 2020 single Lil Bit.

The song started off with the lyrics, “It’s time to represent your country / No matter where you’re from / Waking up at 2 a.m. to watch a little badminton. Get your soccer socks on, we’re playing football / Pour yourself some Wheaties / It’s time to win it all / This Olympics.”

For those unversed, the games officially began this Friday and included a performance of John Lennon's Imagine by John Legend and Keith Urban at the opening ceremony.
