It didn’t take long for Dave Grohl to make his presence felt as guest host of Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night. As it was Halloween, the Foo Fighters frontman wore a costume, and a rather amazing one at that: he was dressed as another famous Dave, former Late Show host David Letterman. Seeing Grohl with a long grey beard, glasses, and an old-school letterman jacket, sitting behind a talk show desk was sight to forever cherish. Seeing him wear the costume while performing drums as part of an impromptu jam with Kristen Bell — well, that’s something for the
history books Twitter archives.
While interviewing Bell, Grohl mentioned how his daughters were obsessed with the movie Frozen, “and if I were to jam a song with you, I would become like the coolest dad.” This led Bell, who was dressed as Tom Selleck’s Magnum P.I. character, to begin singing the Frozen song “Do You Want to Build a Snowman”. Once Grohl got his hands on some drumsticks, however, the song took a noticeably heavier turn, eventually segueing into Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”. Bell handled the vocals switches like a pro, even letting out a few growls. The whole thing was pretty amazing and you can replay it up above.
