Actor Will Forte was one of the featured guests on Tuesday night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he regaled the host and his audience with stories of his love for Ozzy Osbourne to go with a visual recap of a recent trip throughout the Irish countryside.
Forte began his guest segment on the popular late-night show by explaining that his initial reason for making the trip overseas last month was to attend one of the shows on Ozzy’s No More Tours II Tour. Those initial run of European dates were postponed in late-January due to Osbourne’s health, forcing Forte and his companions to find new ways to keep themselves entertained while in Ireland without a concert to attend. Forte went on to further explain how the sight-seeing portion of their trip ended up involving recreations of well-known classic album covers, starting with Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy, which was based around the natural landscape of Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland.
Forte and his friend found almost the exact location of the landscape where the original album artwork was framed, only to create their own interpretation with a nearly-naked Forte as the stand-in. Other classic album covers which Forte and his friends reworked included The Beatles‘ Abby Road, U2‘s The Joshua Tree, and Nirvana’s Nevermind. Fans can check out the video of last night’s interview segment below to hear Forte explain how his latest hobby came about.

Osbourne has since been released back into the wild and his tour is scheduled to start up again on Sunday, March 9th beginning with the leg of shows in Australia.
