Bill Gates was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon for two segments last night talking about the 2014 Gates Annual Letter, in which he and Melinda Gates debunk three of the biggest myths about global health and development.

gateshawksAs Gates talked about the future of technology, Fallon made a point of hiding the MacBook on his desk.

“This is probably disrespectful,” Fallon joked. “I’m going to just close this.”

Gates shrugged it off and smiled. It was actually interesting that Gates didn’t talk about his early work on Mac applications. (He has bigger things to talk about these days, obviously.)

The kicker was a “viral video” that concluded the segment, with Gates touting in all sorts of crazy outfits — including, of course, a Seattle Seahawks jersey and hat.

Check out the full appearance below.
