Twitter is a funny thing. It enables awkward celebrity crushes in people like me. A quick word on how I handle awkward situations: I don’t. I avoid awkward conversations with my boss at almost all costs, and as a result, I’ve barely spoken 10 words together to my boss in years. Literally years. I won’t watch awkward reality television, like The Bachelor or Real Housewives of New York, because just WATCHING the awkwardness leads me to feel such awkwardness that I’m cringing with discomfort. But with Twitter, I can have a public crush on a celebrity like Jimmy Fallon, commenting cheekily about how much he loves his job or how funny his most recent Hashtags segment was, without fear that he will ever, EVER pass my in the hallway and avoid eye contact or something similarly awkward.
But if you’re not watching Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, you’re missing out on some of the funniest TV ever. And Jimmy Fallon loves his job. It’s adorable. So in honor of my “crush” on Jimmy Fallon, here are a couple of my very favorite clips.
I love that Jimmy and Justin can have fun with one another and at the expense of something that, let’s face it, can be pretty ridiculous. Hashtags. #Bling #DentalCare #CavityFree #ThatsHowWeDo #WeGoHard
Seriously, even in drag, Jimmy Fallon is adorable. He’s got “Mom Dancing” nailed in this spoof with Michelle Obama.
Who is YOUR celebrity crush? Do you ever tweet your love?
