Lip Sync Battle preview videos are here! This week, Malin Akerman (forever Silk Spectre II) silently mouths words against Stephen Merchant, executive producer of the show, and all around hilarious writer of such shows as The Office and Extras. The clips show Malin Akerman performing “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard in a catsuit (Meow!), and Stephen Merchant showcasing his derriere to Christina Aguilera’s “Dirrty” (NOT Meow!). Now don’t let the fact that you may not know who Stephen Merchant is deter you from watching. I too, had no idea, until one fine day on YouTube, looking up lip sync battle clips from Jimmy Fallon shows, and came across a gem of a three-way: Joseph Gordon-Levitt vs. Stephen Merchant vs. Jimmy Fallon. I was hooked immediately.
Watch the two preview clips plus the aforementioned gem below.
LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen really look like they are enjoying themselves as Akerman does an MJ crotch grab, while Merchant gets cheeky in chaps.
Thursday nights are just my fun, silly TV nights with Lip Sync Battle and Olympus. Enjoy the videos!
Lip Sync Battle airs Thursday nights at 10pm ET on Spike TV.
