Kate McKinnon Raps in Hungarian on 'The Tonight Show' and It's Flawless

Kate McKinnon visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night (August 1) to chat about her upcoming movie with Mila Kunis, The Spy Who Dumped Me. While the actress sat on Fallon's famed couch, the talk show host asked if the film was shot on location in Budapest, Hungary. 

After confirming that it was, the comedian remarked that Hungarian is the second most difficult language for English speakers to learn. She then joked that after three months of steady practice learning the language, “I found that I could not order at a restaurant.” 

She did, however, learn how to rap in Hungarian. Her teacher was a friend named Eric whose “technical job was to drive me to the set, but his real job was to teach me how to rap in Hungarian, which he did.” 

Naturally, Fallon's next question was if McKinnon would rap for the audience, and she obliged. She mentioned it took her a year just to learn one verse of "Yozsefváros," a song released in 1995 by the Hungarian group Animal Cannibals, but she rapped that verse flawlessly and even got the crowd involved.

The Spy Who Dumped Me hits theaters this Friday (August 3). Watch McKinnon's impressive performance below.
