Guys, today is Friday, and that’s usually when I catch up on some personal stuff. Check my inbox, return some e-mails, and of course send some thank you notes. I was running a bit behind, so if you guys don’t mind, I’d like to write my thank you notes right now, that cool? Great.
Rando YouTube guy, can I get some thank you writing music please?
Thank you, Joking Bad,
For making me go crazy over the amount of easter eggs included in this Breaking Bad-inspired digital short. This proved just how dedicated, smart and detailed the LNJF staff is when it comes to making parodies.
Thank you, Funkin’ Gonuts,
For inadvertently making me (a native ‘medium iced french vanilla with cream and sugar’ east coaster) turn my beloved DDs into a solo dance party any time I hear the phrase “Dunkin’ Donuts”
Thank you, A Cappella version of We Can’t Stop,
For making me picture Jimmy’s adorable face everytime I hear “forget the haters because somebody loves yaaaa”.
Thank you, office supply version of Your Body,
For making me like this version better than the original and making me daydream about Jimmy’s hat and dance moves.
Thank you, Brian Williams Gangster Rapper
For making the dreams I never thought I had come true.
Thank you, Evolution of Mom Dancing
For letting my one of my favorite First Ladies show off her Sprinkler and Dougie skills in a matter of minutes.
Thank you, Hurricane Sandy
(But not really thank you), For being so horrible that there was no audience for the show and helping to prove Jim Jam is so talented and funny that he can make what could have been the most disasterous episode into one of the most memorable ever in late night TV.
Thank you, Jersey Floor,
For making me question whether I am DTF with guidos or if it’s just because Jimothy, Tina and Poehlstar made the overtanned/overhairsprayed look legit attractive.
Thank you, 6 Bee,
For finally letting the world see Ron Swanson shimmying to a Twisted Sister song.
Thank you, California Dreams reunion,
For reminding everyone that this theme song was one of the greatest in TV history, despite its utter 90s cheesiness.
Thank you, the men of Full House,
For being so game not only for a rendition of Teddy Bear, but also for this Jesse and the Rippers reunion. It made me feel like I was actually in San Francisco and hanging out at the Smash Club.
Thank you, Mike DiCenzo (aka Mets Bucket Hat Guy),
For being the LNJF staff writer behind this brilliant appearance by Zack Morris. Like the REAL Zack Morris, not Mark Paul Gosselaar. You included dialogue that only true Saved by the Bell fans would get, like referencing Indiana/Good Morning, Miss Bliss, Stansbury ‘The Harvard of the West’, “preppy”, stupid slimeball JEFF, druggie Johnny Dakota, and of course Zack Attack. Basically, I feel like between our mutual love of 90s TV shows and Gilmore Girls, we could be friends. #BabetteAteOatmeal
Thank you, Weekend Update Charades
For bringing together my favorite Weekend Upadte anchors/human beings for the most epic game of charades network TV has ever seen.
Thank you, Lip Sync Battle with John Krasinski
For causing me to swoon, literally almost swoon after seeing my beloved JKras mouth the words to I’ll Make Love To You while nearly taking his clothes off. I still CANNOT.
Thank you, Timberweek,
For everything you have been, everything you are, and everything you will be in the future. I miss you every day.
Finally, thank you, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,
For providing us with five years of constant laughter and unadulterated joy. Good things happen to people who do good, and that’s exactly what Jimmy and the entire crew of Late Night deserve. While it’s sad to see this era come to a close, I can’t wait to see you blow everyone’s pants off on Monday when you start your journey on the Tonight Show. Thank you, pal.
