Hashtagging in Real Life Is Only Funny When Jimmy Fallon and Jonah Hill Do It

Last September, I said that Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake’s hashtag conversation was the only one that will ever be funny. I was wrong, and I apologize.

Jimmy Fallon has brought the bit back for an encore, and now that he’s the brand new host of The Tonight Show he’s able to pull a huge cameo from a legendary director.

You’ll see in a sec. Even without aforementioned cameo, this is gold. Hashtagging your real life conversations is really, really dumb–but this is perfect. It’s like a string of pop culture references tied into a commentary on the state of modern communications…or whatever.

From the first three episodes of the new-look Tonight Show, it’s clear that Fallon is targeting a younger crowd. Between the multitude of 90′s references, hip hop nostalgia, and heavy Twitter influence, I think we can safely say that this isn’t Jay Leno part two. Er, three.

Still, time will tell whether or not that fact actually becomes a hinderance.

Funny or not, I think Questlove has the right idea with his impassioned plea.
