Mike Spinner appeared on the Jimmy Fallon show yesterday (4/22). Having a quarter pipe put together on the set, he did a tailwhip-tailtap with that and did some hop tricks (tailwhip&360;).
Jimmy Fallon is a funny dude, but clearly not an action sports enthusiast. To his credit, dress shoes and a nice suit are not the swagger of choice for most BMX riders, but the ensuing "bunny hop" is unjustifiable as Jimmy, with his safety helmet on, lifts the front tire an inch off the floor with an uncomfortable jerk of motion. No offense to the late night show host, but stick to comedy. I really wish, actually, he would bring back Nick Burns from SNL on his show. His company computer guy skit killed it (one of my favorite SNL skits).
[I know a lot of people (like full 20 inches) hate Jimmy Fallon, which I do not completely disagree with, but people must understand he is not a stand up comedian. So when he does any comedy where it is just him standing up... put the mute button on. I agree. He is a skit comedian. If you watched him on SNL you probably know this. I watched part of his show once and wasn't entirely impressed, but watch one skit of Nick Burns from SNL... and you will laugh.]
