Hey, Remember That Time I Beat Jimmy Fallon?

There was an epilogue to this story that I never posted here.  After I won the Webby Award in 2009, I was back again in 2010 for my follow up show “The Reel Good Show”.  (I beat Yahoo! that year…But, it was way less dramatic.)

In the middle of the show, I was at the bar ordering a drink and I heard “Bobby Miller!”  I turned around: and it was Jimmy Fallon.  He was incredibly nice and asked what I was up to.  I had never met him during the whole “Don’t Let Jimmy Win!” campaign and was delighted to see how cool of a dude he was.  It’s definitely not a shocker to see how quickly he rose up the Late Night ranks since then.  Thumbs up, Fallon.

My 5 word Webby speech!  (Youtube Link Here)

Got to meet Gavin Purcell, Jimmy’s show producer.  Really nice guy and was a swell sport about all of this stuff.  Woulda liked to meet Fallon, but alas!  

My Mom and Step Dad came to the ceremony too.  In fact, my mom was going on and on about how she met Ariana Huffington and talked to her for a long time…But, then Ariana Huffington accepted her Webby and my mom whispered to us:

"Wait a second…I wasn’t talking to Ariana Huffington."

I have no idea who my mom talked to.

Thanks again everyone who voted and let me have such a nice night.  Erik, Vanessa, Tim, Rachel, and Rusty, it was a pleasure.

FOR THE WIN!

The PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN. Best Short Films beats Jimmy Fallon at the People’s Voice Awards!

Thank you.

It’s been quite a week.  The support for the show and the DontLetJimmyWin.com campaign has been overwhelming.  Unfortunately, we won’t know the winner till May 5th.  So, we just have to sit tight till than.

Anyways, I just wanted to say thanks everyone for an amazing week.  I’m a pretty lucky guy to be surrounded by such great friends and a wonderful and passionate audience.

Your number one fan,
Bobby

I don’t think anyones gonna be able to top SkyCarl’s music video response (above) to Jimmy Fallon’s vicious tirade against me.

It’s soooo good.
