It all started when a Celebrity Name Game contestant had to name the host of the TV game she was playing — while he (Craig Ferguson) was standing right there — and she couldn’t do it! #Awkward
“It left me! It just went away!” the embarrassed contestant said.
What to do?
If you’re Craig Ferguson, you take the lesson in humility and make another game out of it — and you bring in a star-studded cast of celebrity good sports to help out!
And that, friends, is how this Celebrity Name Game music video came about!
Sure, The Name Game is fun! And it’s easy if your name is Craig (Ferguson) or David (Arquette) or Al (Yankovic) or Ross (Mathews).
But what if your name is Vivica?
And really, we would think the name Terrell (Owens) wouldn’t be such a challenge. (Really, though, he does great.)
But NO ONE comes closer to Craig Ferguson in nailing the actual lyrics than David Alan Grier — uh, except for the “Shake that @$$!” ad-lib he throws in there.
We don’t even care that Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox tell Craig Ferguson, “No, no” and “I don’t want to” when he explains their parts in the video: dancing.
Because then they do! #Awesome
Watch for yourself!
