Jimmy Fallon's Social Experiment: The Yankees!

Jimmy STRIKES again! This time, it’s a sports moment and his ‘social exper­i­ment’. From Yahoo Sports:

Jimmy Fal­lon does some keen social exper­i­ments dis­guised as man-on-the-street bits for “The Tonight Show,” and this one fea­tur­ing Robin­son Cano is gen­uinely funny. It might not be as hilar­i­ous as the one Matt Har­vey of the Mets did around the All-Star break, when he inter­viewed peo­ple who had no idea who he was. But this vignette with Cano is a ter­rific study in how peo­ple say one thing behind your back and another to your face. It’s also a solid take on what hap­pens some­times in the com­ments sec­tion of an inter­net post and, to a degree, in email or social media. Peo­ple can get pretty bold on the World Wide Web, don’t you know?

It’s noth­ing for fans to boo a card­board cutout of Cano, who returns to Yan­kee Sta­dium for the first time since sign­ing with the Seat­tle Mariners in the off­sea­son for $240 mil­lion. And, with the safety of being in the stands for the game, it won’t take that much gump­tion for fans to boo him in per­son, either, if they choose.

This is hilar­i­ous! Enjoy friends!
