Jimmy Fallon played Russian President Vladimir Putin in a skit on "The Tonight Show" Wednesday with Sarah Palin, who got a phone call from the faux Russian leader about her 2008 prediction that Russia would invade Ukraine. President Barack Obama was the skit's indirect target.

The comedic sketch featured a Fallon in a suit and wig to make him look like the Russian leader. He called the former Alaska governor, supposedly after he had just hung up with President Barack Obama about Ukraine.

Putin-Fallon's conversation with Palin went all over the place; he asked Palin who he should invade next. He also told her he could've used her help with his March Madness brackets. The two even performed a brief duet of Pharrell Williams' "Happy."

“Since you’re so great at guessing my next move, who should I invade next? I’m thinking Finland, Sweden, I heard Jamaica’s nice this time of year,” Putin-Fallon asked.

“My advice to you would be you get those troops out of Ukraine right now,” Palin answered firmly.

“Hey, Captain Buzzkill, it was a joke,” he responded.

Putin-Fallon also made a joke about Russia invading Alaska, a reference to Palin's comment during her 2008 vice presidential about Russia being Alaska's "next-door neighbors."

“I wouldn’t Vlad,” Palin responded. “You might be able to take down a bear, but you are no match for a momma grizzly.”

Palin promoted the Fallon skit by writing on her Facebook page, “Got to deliver some straight talk to our neighbor, the tyrant across the Bering Strait.”

The “Tonight Show” skit had a few jabs for Obama.

At the end of the skit, Putin-Fallon told Palin, “I come from strong genes. President Obama, he comes from mom jeans."

Fans went online to tweet how much they loved the Fallon sketch.
