Ever wish you could hear Brian Williams rap "to the bang bang boogie, say, up jump the boogie, to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat?"

Well, dreams come true.

Jimmy Fallon's "Tonight Show" team put Williams and a couple of his pals into "Rapper's Delight," the 1979 classic by the Sugar Hill Gang.

The new mashup continues a tradition from Fallon's "Late Night" days, which had the veteran news anchor inserted into tunes such as Snoop Dogg's "Nuthin' But A 'G' Thang" and N.W.A.'s "Straight Outta Compton."

Earlier this week, Williams sat down with Fallon and asked about the rap remixes.

"Is there a kid in a room who has to watch me?" Williams wondered. "That's so sad. Has he hurt anyone? Has he done anything wrong? Was it this or Rikers?"
