NBC/NBCU Photo Bank

Jimmy Fallon called the Super PACs “super freaky,” and launched into a politically inspired rendition of Rick James’ "Super Freak."

“Rock Center’s” Brian Williams joined “Late Night's" Jimmy Fallon on Monday to "slow-jam the news” and jest about President Obama’s decision to get on board with the Super PAC crowd.

While The Roots laid down some smooth beats in the background, Williams played straight man, reading the news as Fallon jumped in with a few “Aww yeahs.”

“Sounds like the President goes both ways on this issue,” Fallon crooned to the crowd, adding that there’s “nothing wrong with a campaign getting an insertion of back door cash.”

Fallon later called the Super PACs “super freaky,” and launched into a politically inspired rendition of Rick James’ "Super Freak." Williams — or Bri will.i.ams, as Fallon called him — brought the jam home with an "Oh yeah!"
