Jimmy Fallon Grows Up; The Ketchup Wars May Be Over

We realize there's only so much time one can spend in a day watching new trailers, viral video clips, and shaky cell phone footage of people arguing on live television. This is why every day The Atlantic Wire highlights the videos that truly earn your five minutes (or less) of attention. Today: Jimmy Fallon discusses POTUS and The Boss, Ketchup may soon be more accesible, and the trouble with retrieving the Costa Concordia.

Jimmy Fallon -- who against all odds has really grown into himself -- stopped by The Today Show this morning to talk about how that "slow jam" he did with President Obama came about. On a related note, Jimmy Fallon looks good in summer-weight suits. It is our humble opinion he should go to the earth tone suit well more often. (Fallon receives demerits for talking about the time he made Bruce Springsteen sing "Whip Your Hair," which he seems to think was cute, rather than an abomination.)  [Today]

We enjoy time lapse videos around these parts, and particularly enjoyed seeing how the events staff at the Staples Center handled hosting six playoff games featuring the Kings, Clippers, and Lakers in  the span of four days. Thrill as ice turns to wood and then back to ice again!  [Yahoo Sports via LAist]
