Jimmy Fallon visits UT Austin, scooters down Sixth Street before taping

Matthew McConaughey will guest star on show airing Thursday

Funny man Jimmy Fallon is getting weird in Austin.

The comedian and late night talk show host was spotted at the University of Texas at Austin's campus and along the famed Sixth Street Tuesday night.

Social media photos and videos show Fallon in a Longhorn T-shirt as he flashed the Hook 'em Horns hand gesture, ran, yelled and danced with a crowd of students on campus.

Fallon was there to film an introduction for Thursday's show in Austin, which will include 2,500 students as guests, according to KXAN.

The taping will take place at Bass Concert Hall, according to KXAN, and students had a chance to enter a lottery last month to attend the show.

Central Texas celebrities Matthew McConaughey and Chip and Joanna Gaines will be guest stars on the show, which airs on NBC Thursday night. Gucci Mane will be the music guest.
