The more we see Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon, the more we want them to have their own show together. Their latest joint effort? Showing everyone just how pervasive the hashtag culture has become online — and how utterly ridiculous it is.
In the skit, JT and JF have a conversation (a real face-to-face one, remember those?) but they still use hashtags. Only since they actually say the word “hashtag” and include a descriptive hand gesture every time, it doesn’t take long for the whole thing to spiral into the absurd. (Where else will you find cookies, Ray Romano, sexy ghosts and ‘We Can’t Stop’ all in the same chat?)
Remember, kids: Friends don’t let friends overuse hashtags.
