Luke Bryan, Jimmy Fallon Debate How to Pronounce ‘Gyro’ in Hilarious Song [Watch]
Luke Bryan and Jimmy Fallon play on Bryan’s Georgia upbringing in a hilarious new song, debating the proper pronunciation of the word “gyro.”
In a side-splitting video that’s set to air on the Tonight Show on Tuesday night (March 14), Bryan and Fallon decide to hit up a food truck on a New York City street, where the country superstar is too embarrassed to admit that he doesn’t know how to pronounce the item he’d like to order. That leads into a humorous duet between Bryan and Fallon, in which they debate the pronunciation of “gyro” in a ridiculously catchy song that will stick in your head long after lunch is over.
“I was born in southwest Georgia / Always tried to make my daddy proud / But of all the things I’ve learned there / Never learned to say that word out loud,” Bryan sings before he’s joined by the late night host, who agrees with him in the bizarrely hilarious song that “gyro” is simply too open to interpretation.

“I could eat a thousand ounces / If I just knew how to pronounce it,” Fallon sings with a comical shrug.
They finally decide to ask the cart vendor, and when he confirms the proper pronunciation, the overjoyed singers start celebrating, jumping for joy and throwing gyros around like confetti in the back of a pickup truck. They even dance and stage a group hug with the helpful vendor right there in the streets of New York, but the comedy doesn’t end there. Make sure to watch the video above all the way to the end, when Bryan decides to change his order — and makes another hilarious gaffe in the process.
Bryan is set to appear on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night. The show airs at 11:35PM ET on NBC.
