During this year’s Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, USA swimmer Ryan Lochte got into hot water after saying that he was robbed at a gas station. It was later revealed Lochte made details up. He and the other swimmers were never robbed. However, they were allegedly held up at gunpoint after damaging property.

Lochte’s gold medal winning teammate Michael Phelps never commented on the incident. However, he might as well have tonight.

During the MTV VMAs, “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon ran out onstage dressed up as Ryan Lochte. The hilarious impression shocked the audience, but nobody seemed more shocked than Phelps himself, who was in attendance along with other Olympians like Simone Biles and Aly Raisman.
