Northeastern student takes mini-Jimmy Fallon abroad
The Boston Globe - 03/03/2016
Halle O’Conor, a fourth-year student at Northeastern University who is traveling abroad in Italy, has been placing and taking pictures of the 8-inch replica of Fallon around Italy’s many cities. She then posts the humorous images to her Instagram account, “Jimmy Fallon Studies Abroad.”
She is hoping the stunt will grab Fallon’s attention, and secure her a production internship on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” next semester. O’Conor’s Instagram account has been gaining traction online, and was also featured on the TODAY show’s website.
“I wanted to do something that would make me stand out in a competitive pool of applicants,” she said via e-mail from Italy. “I honestly wasn’t sure what would come of the Instagram account, but I hoped that it would at least make some people laugh.”
