Last night, Rebel Wilson stopped by "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" to promote her new movie, "Pain and Gain." While there, Fallon suggested that the two play a little game in which they improvise dance moves based on random phrases pulled out of a bag.

Wilson was down -- "I've had two days of dance training, so why not" -- and what ensued was a cross between a set of squat-thrusts at the gym and "Nights at the Roxbury." The names of the dances, presumably made up by drunken Fallon scribes in a hot, stuffy writers' room, included The Mick Jagger Chicken Dance and, for the win, I'm Holding Too Much Eye Contact While Dancing.

The resulting video proves that we'd be interested in watching Rebel Wilson do just about anything. Also, it's time to acknowledge -- in fact, it's beyond time -- that Wilson is giving Aubrey Plaza a very serious run for her money in the deadpan market.

Here's the video in its entirety:

In case you have more time to kill on this overcast Tuesday morning, which you would obviously just want to spend watching more Rebel Wilson videos, here she is as Jennifer Lawrence's sister, and here she is again rapping with Maude Apatow.
