We knew we loved Jimmy Fallon. It's hard not to love the guy, but it's especially hard for us because we empathize with him so strongly as nerds. Fallon is such a hardcore Nintendo fan, Shigeru Miyamoto and Reggie Fils-Aime actually decided to show up to his late night talk show to show off the Nintendo Switch and play Breath of the Wild in public for the very first time. This was more than a simple publicity stunt. Jimmy actually loves his Nintendo Switch, and he takes it with him to work every single day, apparently.
We know this because Jimmy admitted it himself. Today he sent out a series of fun Tweets with the hashtag #MyWeirdSecret. What was Jimmy's big secret? He tries to look professional by carrying a briefcase into work every day, but it's really just full of video games.
I carry a briefcase to work but the only thing inside it is a Nintendo Switch. #MyWeirdSecret— jimmy fallon (@jimmyfallon) May 17, 2017
He even attached a picture to prove it:
He's got a pretty good setup in there. We see he opted for the Neon Switch variant to keep things colorful, and in the back left corner of the briefcase we can spot a HORI Nintendo Switch play-stand: an essential for any Switch player on the go. We also see 1-2 Switch and the very edge of a colorful box which we assume to be Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. We are a bit shocked that Breath of the Wild isn't front and center, but we'll just assume that he has that installed on his memory card so he can play it any time he wants.
And now you know Jimmy Fallon's not-so-weird secret. He can't go a full day without playing his Switch, and we can't blame him. Your humble writer stashes his Nintendo Switch in his work bag every day as well, and I tend to squeeze in at least 10-15 minutes of play time before I get back to work from my lunch break. It's one of the many reasons we love the Switch so much, and one of the reasons they're still so hard to find.
If you see Jimmy walking the streets of LA, ask him to throw down on a round of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Chances are he'll be ready.
