Compare Paul Rudd & Jimmy Fallon’s Recreation Of Go West’s “King Of Wishful Thinking” With The Original

first_img[Video: Jørgen Pedersen] It’s always great when Jimmy Fallon and Paul Rudd release new shot-by-shot recreations of classic music videos. In the past, the duo has brilliantly recreated Styx’s “Too Much Time On My Hands” (see a side-by-side comparison here), though Fallon semi-frequently releases music video recreations solo on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Now, Fallon and Rudd have added a new music video to their catalog with their on-point mimicry of Go West’s 1990 hit, “King Of Wishful Thinking”.Go West’s “King Of Wishful Thinking” was released in 1990, though later made it onto the group’s fourth studio album, Indian Summer, in 1992. However, the song is probably best known for its role in the movie Pretty Woman, during which it partially provided the soundtrack during the movie’s opening credit sequence.In Fallon and Rudd’s music video for “King Of Wishful Thinking”, the pair hilariously and precisely take on recreating all the absurd elements within Go West’s original video. You can watch Rudd and Fallon’s stand-alone take, as well as a side-by-side comparison put together by Jørgen Pedersen, below.Paul Rudd & Jimmy Fallon – “King Of Wishful Thinking”[Video: The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon] Side-By-Side Comparison Of “King Of Wishful Thinking”last_img read more
