Appearing on NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Jimmy Fallon poked fun at Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Obama’s “mom jeans,” and even rocked out together to Pharrell Williams‘ “Happy.”

In the skit, Mr. Fallon once again strapped on his best Putin impression and called Mrs. Palin for a phone chat.

“Interesting, you shoot bear?” the fake Putin asked with a thick Russian accent. “I prefer hand to hand combat.”

“Well, you see, that’s why everyone says you’re such a strong leader,” Mrs. Palin replied sarcastically.

“Well, I come from strong genes,” Putin replied. “President Obama — he come from mom jeans.”

A fake Obama also made an appearance as Putin and Mrs. Palin mocked the National Security Agency.

“Wait… I hear breathing on other end of phone,” Putin says. “Maybe it’s NSA spying on us.”

The screen then splits and shows Obama frantically trying to hang up the phone.

Putin and Mrs. Palin pulled out their own instruments and jammed together to Pharrell’s “Happy,” and the Republican even jogged over to Russia to help Vlad with his vodka cravings.

“Well, actually, Alaska’s not that far from Russia. Hold on a second,” she said, handing him the bottle through the split-screen.

“Actually Alaska really is close to Russia,” Putin says. “Maybe I should invade.”

“I wouldn’t if I were you, Vlad,” Mrs. Palin responds. “You may be able to take down a bear, but you’re no match for a mama grizzly.”
