A hilarious clip of Morgan Freeman speaking while on helium has resurfaced online – and people can't get enough.

The Oscar-winning actor sat down with Jimmy Fallon a few years back when he reluctantly took the host up on his offer to try out helium.

A segment from the interview saw Fallon compliment Freeman's distinct voice, before saying he was intrigued to hear what he would sound like after inhaling the gas.

Fallon said: "So I thought maybe, I'd just do the same interview, conducting the interview, but before we talk... "

Freeman, looking confused, blankly stared back at the host.

"Come on, Morgan, come on, Morgan," Fallon said. "Don't quit on me now, Morgan! Don't cramp up in me now."

Lucky for Fallon, the Shawshank Redemption stareventuallyagrees, with both of them taking a deep inhale from their balloons.

"Do you ever wanna go to space?" Fallon asks, to which a squeakier Morgan responds: "I really shouldn't be doing this. It's very undignified."
