Everyone remembers their prom, whether it was an epic night, a total disaster or really nothing special. For Jimmy Fallon, it was one awkward high school dance as a pale-looking teen.
On Wednesday, The Tonight Show host gifted fans with an old school prom photo of himself with his date, who's dressed in an '80s-looking, pale pink dress and white gloves. Fallon is standing right beside her with a goofy grin on his face, sporting a black tux with a bow tie and awkwardly holding on to her hand.
"My date didn't tell me she was getting a tan and high heels for the prom. Standing next to her I looked so pale and so small," Fallon tweeted, dubbing the pic #PromFail.
Fans instantly went nuts for the pic, calling him Edward Cullen, telling him he "looked adorable" and commenting on the outdated fashion. Right before he shared the photo, he had asked his followers to send in their weird, funny or embarrassing prom stories. The best ones would be showcased on Thursday's episode of The Tonight Show.
The Saturday Night Live alum recently returned to his old stomping ground, Studio 8H, to host the sketch show for the third time. That night, Harry Styles made his first appearance as a solo artist singing "Sign of the Times" and "Ever Since New York."
Fallon spoke with ET about hosting SNL's first coast-to-coast live episode and how "honored" he was that Lorne Michaels chose him to "be part of the [show's] history. Watch the video below.
