Jimmy Fallon Cracked Up Sharing People's 'Quarantine a Book' Tweets
Everything looks a little different when you're self-isolating. Frozen pizza starts to look like a five-star meal, your coif starts to look like the pile of hair in the tub drain, and late-night shows start to look like the faux-news video you made for a high school civics project.
Most of us are spending a lot of time at home, and those hosts aren't any different. If you've caught The Tonight Show recently, you've seen a stripped-down, informal broadcast filmed predominantly at host Jimmy Fallon's home. There's a definite charm to the format, but they aren't cutting out all of the regular segments. Fallon is still doing "Hashtags" every week, frequently with a quarantine theme.
That was the case with the latest installment where he asked people on Twitter to do their best take on the theme "Quarantine a Book." If you're seeing "Hashtags" for the first time, the show asks people to respond to the theme on Twitter with, you guessed it, a hashtag like #WeddingFail or #MyFamilyIsWeird.
It takes a little getting used to the monologue and ritual of a late-night show without an audience, but if you want to skip that part, the "Hashtags" segment starts at the 6:03 mark in the video above. You'll see some nerdy wordplay from fans on Twitter, which, this time, included Padma Lakshmi's take on Jane Eyre.
