Ricky Gervais is always a treat to have on talk shows because he’s such a ridiculous and fun guest. On Monday (June 2), the “Derek” star stopped by “The Tonight Show,” where Jimmy Fallon makes him play a game of “Word Sneak” that goes predictably crazy.

But first, in the above video, Gervais and Fallon talk about how much they like the SkyMall magazine that you get in airplanes — they riff for several minutes about doing their garden up with things from SkyMall, and it’s hilarious.

Below, however, Fallon and Gervais play “Word Sneak,” which is the game where they each get five words that they have to “sneak” into the conversation as casually as possible. And boy, they really should not have given Gervais the word “gerbil,” though the best one is the last one — the way Fallon manages to get “Keanu Reeves” into the conversation.
