Jimmy Fallon reworks the Universal Hollywood Studio Tour

Published: June 5, 2011 at 1:46 PM

Time to catch up on some non-Disney theme park news. Last week, Universal Studios Hollywood opened its latest iteration of its Studio Tour, which is now "hosted" by NBC Late Night host Jimmy Fallon.

Here's a short video produced by Universal of the premiere event:

In case you didn't just click and watch the video, Fallon mentions that his writing staff rewrote some of the tour script, adding jokes and even a gag song, "Have a Tramtastic Day!"

Ah, snark. What Universal does better than anyone else.

I've never been a fan of Jimmy Fallon, but he fits perfectly for this role. He's passionate and lighthearted, which would actually suit better for a Disney attraction, but it works nicely here.

You know who would be an excellent attraction host? Patton Oswalt. His obsessively specific pop-culture references and snark would work beautifully at Universal. Bad language, NSFW:
