Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig and Jimmy Fallon Debut Quarantine Soap Opera, ‘The Longest Days of Our Lives’

Jimmy Fallon has enlisted Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig for a perfectly-timed soap opera.

The 45-year-old host just debuted another at-home episode of his late-night talk show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. During the installment, Fallon released a never-before-seen segment, called “The Longest Days of Our Lives,” which stars the trio acting out a dramatic script.

In the video, the trio are donning over-the-top accents as they introduce their characters. Long story short, the episode revolves around Winston (Fallon) who exposes his girlfriend, Vanessa (Wiig), for cheating on him. How rude!

Of course, this isn’t any ordinary affair—it’s a virtual one. Dun dun dunn. “It was through, like, Skype or something, yes,” Vanessa explains.

Although Winston initially blames Vanessa’s infidelity on his brother, Alejandro (Ferrell), he soon learns the culprit is his long-lost brother, Montgomery (also Ferrell).

Thank you, Jimmy—er, we mean—Winston. We really needed this distraction.
