Proving that no one on this planet is immune to the charms of the blonde country star, comedian Dane Cook performed a shirtless serenade last night for Taylor Swift, his fellow guest on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show."
While Cook's commitment to the bit was impressive -- he actually sported a Swift "tattoo" on his chest -- the actual execution left something to be desired. He rhymed "Swift" with "gift" at one point and closed the song by repeating "We love you, Taylor" a bunch of times. Oh, and he worked in some blatant references to his new comedy album as well, which really made the whole thing seem totally sincere.
Swift -- who was asked earlier in the show about her awards show "surprised" face (her response: "It's so exciting! I never thought I was gonna be at awards shows and nominated, and then you win them. It's just like, 'What?!' It's always fun!") -- seemed half-baffled and half-embarrassed by Cook's ditty. At times shielding her eyes and at one point curtsying awkwardly, she was probably brainstorming the lyrics to a song called "Gift Horse" or "Fairytale Serenade" all the while.
