Jimmy Fallon Came Back to Butler!

Jimmy Fallon, host of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, performed at Butler University way back in 2001. When Butler students heard that Jimmy would broadcast four shows from Indianapolis during Super Bowl week, they got an idea. Using social media as the primary distribution vehicle, students created various promotional pieces to get the Late Night host's attention, including a flash-mob style dance, a "Where's Jimmy?" riddle contest, a "Thank You" note campaign, and a video of Blue II giving a tiny replica of Fallon a ride around campus on his back. Jimmy heard us. Check out the results!

Way to go students, and a special thanks goes out to all of the resident assistants, members of the band, student government association, Hink mascot, Blue II and Schwitzer Hall residents for your help!
