Jimmy Fallon's #PromFail Hashtag Came With Some Hilarious Pictures

"My dress was the same color as the green screen behind us."

There's nothing quite like Jimmy Fallon's "Hashtags" segment on The Tonight Show to remind us that maybe we don't have it quite so bad after all. In the past, viewers have shared their worst springs breaks and crappiest holidays, but nothing can compare to this week's #PromFail tweets — mostly because they came with so many hilarious pictures as illustration.

The first amazing throwback photo came from the host himself, who started the hashtag off with the story of his prom date's unexpected tan. The 18,000 "likes" the post has received really speak for themselves.


We have to give Fallon credit for putting his embarrassing picture out into the world, because it inspired his fans to share their own amazing moments. Take, for example, the girl who unwittingly matched her dress to the green screen where the photos were taken. Let's hope she also took some photos of her own against a real backdrop.

And if you ever end up feeling sad about not having a prom date, just be glad your mom didn't make you hug yourself for photos.
