Leno Gas station prank : Couple perform karaoke. Jay Leno is apparently still relevant(?) thanks, in large part, to this couple in Burbank, California. For a segment on Leno’s Late Show called “Pumpcast News,” Jack Rafferty surprises the hell out of folks by talking to them through the video screen a gas pump.
During the most recent installment, Rafferty spoke with a guy who was singing while filling up his tank. Rafferty asks him to do karaoke and the guy whips out an incredible rendition of Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer.” Then, his wife gets out of the car and they tag team “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” by the Eurythmics.
But on this particular episode, it’s Stack who gets the surprise of his life when the Sims put on an impromptu show worthy of national TV. Stack interjects on Will’s pumping by telling him he has a “really nice singing voice,” then offers to pay for a tank of gas for a song.
And for the next four minutes, Will and Monifa Sims deliver a joyful impromptu performance that is nothing short of life-affirming. At the end, Monifa announces, “Whoever you are you can make me a star! I’m ready for my spotlight!”
So Leno complied — and brought them onto his show. No doubt this joyful couple is the life of every party. Check it out.
