If Luke Bryan’s career in country music doesn’t pan out, at least he’s got something to fall back on. He and Jimmy Fallon — host of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon — have formed a new company with The Roots’ Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, serving as a crack squad of football-watching party saviors.

Dubbed the Party Patrol, Bryan and his crew debuted the hilarious new idea on a recent episode of The Tonight Show, looking ’80s glam in matching perm wigs and bushy mustaches, plus a set of golden football uniforms complete with shoulder pads.

True to their name, the team are out to rescue a lackluster gathering by showing up with snacks and drinks, as Bryan proclaims his undying love for guacamole — “I wish I could get paid in guac,” he talk rapped.

But there’s a hitch in the plan, since Fallon is determined to make cod — the high in Omega-3 fatty acids fish — into a tailgate favorite. He stinks up the place by microwaving a plate full of the scaly snack, and ends up getting super upset as his partners try to gently get themselves “off the hook.” Eventually he forces his friends to give it a shot, though, because “that’s the Party Patrol politeness rule.”

Find out if Fallon turns his buddies into cod converts above!
