Will he kick the football? Who killed Linus?
Jimmy Fallon poked fun at the popular CW show Riverdale on Tuesday night, dressing up as Charlie Brown in a dark “Peanuts” parody sketch.
“Our town presents itself like so many other small towns, safe, decent, innocent. Get closer though, you start to see the shadows underneath,” Fallon narrated, spoofing Cole Sprouse’s Jughead Jones on Riverdale.
Marcie and Peppermint Patty then wonder through the Great Pumpkin patch where they find a dead Linus, sucking his thumb.
Fallon made another nod to Riverdale when his character writes a song about Linus’ death, as Archie on Riverdale frequently does.
The clips ends with him doing the Snoopy Dance at prom as the real stars of Riverdale – KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, and Madelaine Petsch – walk past the gym.
