Watch And Enjoy: “50 Shades Of Greyskull”

You will never catch me reading 50 Shades of Grey, so pardon me if I get all my info about Christian Grey etc. from watching this He-Man mashup from “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” I’m going to assume that Christian is a Skeletor-looking motherfucker, who happens to be really into butts.
