Nick Offerman, Jimmy Fallon, and Blake Shelton remix 'Ho Hey,' chicken-style -- VIDEO

We know you all have heard ”Ho Hey” by The Lumineers a million times, but trust us this will make you chuckle.

Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Blake Shelton, Nick Offerman, and Fallon all dressed up as chickens (The Chickeneers) and clucked their way through the song.

We can’t help but think Ron Swanson would not approve of dressing as a thing he loves to eat, but we’ll let it pass.

The song ended with the message ”Happy Easter from Late Night!” Watch the whole thing here:

'Saturday Night Live' recap: Jennifer Lawrence is an iffy night's silver lining

Ah, the perils of high expectations! Anyone who’s ever giggled at a gif of Jennifer Lawrence joking around predicted that the two-time Oscar nominee would tear up SNL last night. Unfortunately, the show itself didn’t quite live up to those lofty hopes. Lawrence herself got better and better as the episode progressed, shedding the nervousness that seemed to plague her during her opening monologue. But the material she was given didn’t follow the same arc — especially the weak sketches that followed a curiously shortened Weekend Update.

The show got off to a strong start with a Piers Morgan Tonight-themed cold open that tackled a trio of topical issues: Lance Armstrong’s “I doped” Oprah interview, the strange saga of Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend, and Jodie Foster’s quasi-coming out at the Golden Globes. Most of the impressions here were strong, especially Kate McKinnon’s wide-eyed Foster; Bobby Moynihan’s slack-jawed Te’o wasn’t quite as accurate, but his unchanging look of astonishment was a strong visual gag. The best part of the sketch, though, had to be McKinnon quoting Jodie Foster quoting Molly Shannon’s Sally O’Malley character, who was once an SNL staple. INCEPTION!

Could Jennifer Lawrence be the second coming of Jon Hamm?

Let me explain. Before Hamm hosted SNL for the first time, his comedy chops were largely untested. Sure, he seemed funny in interviews — but the man behind Don Draper was much better known as a Serious Actor than a serious goofball. But as soon as Hamm took the stage at Studio 8H, everything changed — he fronted one of the best SNL episodes of the season, inspiring Tina Fey to give him a memorable arc on 30 Rock, Kristen Wiig to give him an even more memorable role in Bridesmaids, and Saturday Night Live itself to invite him back as a frequent guest.

Jennifer Lawrence may find herself in a similar position after tonight’s episode, provided it’s as funny and charming as Lawrence herself. Like Hamm, Lawrence is best known for playing serious characters like The Hunger Games‘s Katniss Everdeen or determined Ozarks teen Ree Dolly in Winter’s Bone, for which she earned her first Oscar nomination. But now, thanks to her more comedic turn in Silver Linings Playbook and her interviews and talk show appearances, Lawrence has proven herself to be sharp, witty, and eminently quotable.
