No one does late-night gags better than "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon, but when the gag of the night happens to be a drone race against Tyler Perry, Fallon has to bow to the master.

Perry is, after all, a self-proclaimed remote control-obsessed "hoarder" who owns RC planes bigger than himself and even has his own runway. So when Fallon challenged him to face off with a pair of small jumping drones, the actor-writer-director shot back, "You want Mozart to play 'Chopsticks'? OK."

The dad-to-be then backed up the tough talk, quickly lapping his competition through a hoop, under a tunnel and over Frank Knuckles from "The Tonight Show" house band (and neo soul greats) The Roots.

"Why would I even play with you, man?" Fallon asked after the race. "You're the best!"

There's no arguing that point.

See how Perry does off the track in his latest film "Gone Girl," which opens in theaters Oct. 3. "The Tonight Show" airs weeknights 11:35 ET on NBC.
