Jimmy Fallon is known to surprise unsuspecting fans with over-the-top guests. However, this time he roped in Paul McCartney - only to make things a hundred times funnier and way more awesome.

Taking to the Thursday night episode of 'The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon', the talk show host and the former Beatles singer pulled a hilarious sketch on fans riding an elevator thinking they were getting an NBC Studios tour.

Groups of fans were told that they were being taken through the 30 Rockefeller Center venue, and when they were inside the elevator, instead of the tour, the door opened to scenes of Fallon and the 76-year-old McCartney doing a caricature of various things, from casual conversations to games and even a magic show, much to the delight and shock of the tourists.

One of the groups was treated to the pair casually lounging around in velvet robes while reading the newspaper with pipes in their mouths, while another group witnessed a hilarious scene of them playing ping-pong when the elevator door opened. 

“No way!” a fan yelled in response. “Oh yeah, way!” McCartney responded back, while one woman even tries to disembark, but is gently restrained. Can't blame her. We would do the same if it was us.

But the best surprise came when another group totally freaked out after Fallon pretended to do a magic blanket trick, and the moment he dropped the blanket - out popped McCartney from behind it. 

The sketches were surprising and hilarious enough to earn a shocking response from fans every single time. There was enough screaming in disbelief and delight to their shocked reactions! Take for example this one particular fan, who said: "I thought when I was little I was going to marry Paul McCartney. So that’s the closest I ever got and I am thrilled.”

At the end of the day, the final joke seemed to be on Fallon and McCartney themselves. The two were in the middle of singing 'Drive My Car' with Fallon on tambourine and McCartney on the acoustic guitar while preparing to surprise another group when the doors opened and there were no fans inside. Not a single one!

Tourists riding the elevators in New York City's 30 Rockefeller Plaza, be warned: you never know what you're going to get when those doors slide open.

Here's the duo having a little more fun backstage.
