Notice how he doesn’t compare it to Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show? Uh, yeah.
“Nobody calls The Tonight Show a variety show and if they do they’re wrong, but based on Fallon’s first week it suddenly looks like one and it could preclude the death of the talk show because everyone will want to copy it,” says Winzenburg. “Fallon is basically doing Saturday Night Live with a short interview segment.”

Although I was flummoxed, the minute I read that Producer, Singer, Songwriter and avid art collector Pharrell Williams was a part of this project, I knew it was something I was not going to miss.

The exhibit is on display at Canada’s National Design Museum, Design Exchange in Toronto through May 19th.
