Slow Jam The News: Jimmy Fallon And Brian Williams Explain The Debt Crisis (VIDEO)

As we reach the deadline before America defaults on its debt, it's easy to get worried about what may happen. To soothe our fears, Jimmy Fallon once again invited special guest Brian Williams for one of the signature bits of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," Slow Jam the News.

Under an R&B beat provided by The Roots, Fallon and the NBC Nightly News anchor explained what this debt crisis is all about, with a little editorializing. Sexy editorializing. It's always a pleasure to see Williams join Fallon for Slow Jam the News, and in times when the news can get depressing, we need sultry crooning about credit defaults more than ever.

Williams' Dateline special, "Taking the Hill: Inside Congress," airs Sunday at 7:00 EST on NBC.
