Watch alex trebek sing rihanna’s ‘umbrella’ and try not to laugh

OK, by now, it just seems like Alex Trebek, our favorite “Jeopardy” host, is trolling. He has to know how much we freak out when he makes modern music references and parses his syllables out perfectly so that we either cringe or squeal with joy.

The most recent song Trebek has taken on a cappella? Rihanna’s “Umbrella.” When a contestant chose the “Rainy Songs” category, Alex dished out this juicy impersonation of the Barbadian songstress:

Eh. Eh. Eh.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Trebek has taken on popular music. Just last month he primly recited the lyrics to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”

What song should Mr. Trebek cover next? I vote for “Pretty Girls” by Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears.
