Watch Paul Rudd And Jimmy Fallon Lip Sync Battle, GIF Highlights Included

The thing about lip-syncing is, from a spectator's perspective, it's pretty pointless unless the lip-syncer is willing to put everything they have into their performance. And it's really for that reason that "Lip Sync Battle" works so well for Jimmy Fallon. It worked well on Late Night when he did it with Joseph Gordon Levitt and Stephen Merchant, and though Fallon has moved over to The Tonight Show, he's evidently decided to include the segment there, which brings us to Paul Rudd's enthusiastic performances, taking on Tina Turner's "You Better Be Good To Me" as well as Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now."

Did Paul Rudd bring his A-Game to these performances? Well, let's just say the proof is in the Gifs.

He really captured the magic in Turner's hit...
