First, Jay Leno spoofed Chanticleer's performance on the Today Show. Then Chanticleer spoofed back!!

"Gigantic Chin," indeed.

You should never mess with men who don't need illegal substances to get high.

I LOVE these boys!!!! They are just amazing and so talented.

Take that, Chinface!

That was fabulous - just what we need...more classy comebacks. Way to go, Chanticleer - for taking the "high road!"

That was very cool. Although Leno was pretty funny too. It's nice that he gave some good music face time! Overall, I'd say very classy on both ends.

p.s. Dear Chanticleer, you can see your conductor in the reflection in the upper left hand corner!
