It was not the kind of success Jerry Seinfeld is used to from years past. The inventor of the show about nothing played Pictionary with Jimmy Fallon, Martin Short, and comedienne Miranda Sings on Monday’s “Tonight Show.” Fallon and Short were one team, Seinfeld and Sings the other.
The clue to the approaching disaster should have been when Fallon asked Miranda if she knew how to play Pictionary, and she told him it’s “the easiest game ever.”
Yes. She did.
Miranda Sings is not really a person, she’s an Internet character created by Colleen Ballinger. So it wasn’t bound to end well, no matter what. When Sings and Seinfeld started the game, they landed the word “Mistletoe” and Sings failed miserably, as was to be expected.
It came out funny, and that, obviously, is the crucial part.
