It all started a few months back when Tom Hanks did a Full House-themed poetry slam on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Not only was it brilliantly executed by the actor, but it was incredibly well written and very funny. You all had to know it was just a matter of time before we got a new one, right? Well, here it is, and it is just as nostalgic and just as awesome. This is Sam Jackson doing a Boy Meets World themed poetry slam, and it WILL be the best thing you see all day. You know I rarely mislead you.
I guess I can now officially scratch “seeing Sam Jackson do slam poetry about a 90’s sitcom” off of my bucket list, which is good. I didn’t think that one was ever gonna get touched, to be honest. I honestly look at this is a peanut butter cup I never thought I would eat. But the reality is, this is pretty awesome. I thought I was the only one who nerded out to Boy Meets World, and apparently, I am not.
Can we take a moment to point out that the poem is actually good? It is safe to assume that Sam did not write it, but regardless. He recites it with a passion and intensity only Sam Jackson could bring to a Boy Meets World poem. Well played, Jimmy Fallon. Well played.
