#Hashtag with Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake

There are a few different types of hashtag offenders: the person who tags everything for the sake of getting more followers, the humble bragger, the non-funny tagger, the person who puts a hashtag before an entire paragraph without spaces so you can’t read whatever dumb thing it is they’re so cleverly hash-ing, and my personal favorite — the endearing souls who just learned how hashtags work but haven’t fully mastered the art of it yet. Oftentimes they punctuate (god bless their respect for the apostrophe!) and it completely voids the hashtag altogether. Don’t forget the meta-tagger who loves to bust out the #hashtag.

We’ve all been these people at least once in our lives (I remember my first hashtag). Or maybe you’re still one of these people. I probably am. I definitely do the meta-tag, and since I think my hashtags are hilarious gifts to the world, there’s probably a hate club somewhere out there rallying against them. #sad <–Sorry. #actuallysorryforpartyingnothashtagging


Luckily for me, us, we: Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake made a video that points out how overused the hashtag actually is. If we can’t laugh at ourselves, then we’re just proving the Gen-X bullies right.

What’s your hashtag pet-peeve? I know for me personally, after writing this little post and typing “hashtag” a hundred different times, the word alone makes me want to stab a fork in my jaw.

AH! One more thing. It’s really important that we also discuss how perfect Questlove’s Hall & Oats shirt is. So find the comments section, and let it ride.

    I am so glad I wasn’t the only one loving the tshirt. On another note, #Ireallyfindthesetwososexy

  • I’ve gotten in so many arguments on whether or not to put too many or any hashtags. I, for one, know when it’s appropriate. #socialmediaqueen

    Your Friend, Jess

  • Kathy Jacobsma

    #I #Can’t #Stand #When #People #Do #This

    Also tagging random words (I’m looking at you Instagram) and then just adding something on the end to make a whole new hashtag. #word #words #wordninja #wordsmith #etc.

  • Stylish Housewife

    i’m just annoyed that i have miley cyrus stuck in my head again. #totallygoingtostartdoingthehashtagsigninfacetofaceconvos

  • Before the election in Germany, the male Chancellor candidate took part in a TV comedy show, where he had to answer some “questions”, one of them being: If you win, will you forbid hashtags? He said yes … (not knowing they were not things made of hash)

  • Laura


  • Yeah, it definitely makes me crazy when people add about twenty different hashtags in slightly different wording to try to get more followers on instagram. #rant #ranting #rantsareforus #need #followers #please #ughhh

  • Foil, Arms and Hog

    We did this idea as a sketch 9 months ago! the exact same, with added jokes! here it is to compare http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WB2Pp1Scs9k

  • Quest Love is the bestest. That shirt is awesome too.

    I’m not a big hash-tagger, to be honest. I guess I do it occasionally if I find something funny, but beyond that I don’t get it. Seems annoying when you say 3 words, followed by 20 hashtags.


  • Jim Reeves

    Yeah This Video is Funny – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5s34aX5RdQ

  • Marie


    Probably the most idiotic hashtag ever.

    You like my photo, I’ll like yours, as if it boasts your self esteem by forcing someone to like your photo.
