Alicia Vikander Teaches Jimmy Fallon the Swedish Frog Dance

Posted on August 14, 2015

Alicia Vikander was guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and proved that she is just as entertaining on talk shows as she is in her movies. Alicia was simply amazing as the lifelike android in Ex Machina and her career is simply on fire. She is currently starring in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. with Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill.

Alicia is Swedish and she shared some of her favorite memories of home with Jimmy. She said that the Midsummer celebration in Sweden is always a lot of fun. They dance around the maypole and do the traditional dance of the little frogs. At this point Jimmy didn't seem sure if she was pulling his leg or not, but when she offered to show him the dance, he agreed (it's a real dance, she was not making it up). Alicia is a former ballerina and is an excellent dancer. So she managed to look dignified even while pretending to be a frog and dancing around a maypole.

She and Jimmy then decided to celebrate the Swedish crayfish festival which is traditionally celebrated in late August Jimmy stocked up on party hats and supplies from Ikea and Alicia was really surprised and happy. She taught Jimmy a dirty drinking song and they both did shots of aquavit. Take a look:
