Jimmy Fallon has been releasing daily video blogs lately, leading up to his debut on Late Night when he takes over for Conan O’Brien next year. At about the 1:20 mark of this one, he addresses allegations of douchebaggery, which, as videogum points out, were kind of the elephant in the room. The rest of the video is pretty much a complete waste of time. Is he being serious? Is he trying to be funny? Are we supposed to care about what he’s talking about? I can’t even tell.
I actually enjoyed him on SNL before he decided breaking character all the time was the cool thing to do, and he’s undeniably talented as an impressionist, but dude clearly has some love-me-daddy issues. He was on Howard Stern around the time this deal was announced and Stern asked him who he’d voted for in the 2004 election and Fallon kept giggling, “Oh haha, I don’t even remember…” and Stern pressed him on it and he just kept going “No seriously, haha, I don’t remember, hee hee…” He couldn’t give a straight answer to anything. My point being: You’ve been rich and famous for quite some time now. For the love of God, grow some balls.
