Sarah Palin chose a perfect way to hype her new Amazing America series, which kicks off tonight on the Sportsman Channel.

She didn't sit for an interview, but instead showed off her comedic skills in a skit with Jimmy Fallon on his Tonight Show.

In the sketch, Fallon, playing Putin, puts in a phone call to Palin.

"I heard back in 2008, you predicted I would invade Ukraine. Is that true?"

"You betcha, Vlad," says Palin.

She advises him to get his troops out of Ukraine and he says, "Whoa, hey Capt. Buzzkill."

They move on to talk March Madness, kids and grizzly bears.

"You shoot bear? I prefer hand-to-hand combat," says Putin.

"Well, that's everyone calls you such a strong leader," says Palin.

"I come from strong genes. President Obama, he comes from mom jeans!" cracks Putin.

They go on to duet on Happy before winding up the call.
