Did Jimmy Fallon sniff a tree? Twenty One Pilots fans mock host after waiting for 'Level of Concern' live gig
Jimmy Fallon's name is all over the Internet and it's all thanks to a Twenty One Pilots performance on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'. Excited to see their favorite band play, music lovers couldn't stop posting about the gig on social media. Since they cannot play their new song 'Level Of Concern' at concerts, they gave fans a live debut on the show. The song was first revealed at the beginning of April after their album 'Trench' and is an attempt to donate a portion of proceeds to Live Nation‘s Crew Nation initiative.
Shedding light on how he wanted the track to benefit others, Tyler Joseph, one half of the musical duo, said, "I also want a portion of whatever money this song makes to go to this charity I saw called Crew Nation." He added, "It provides funding for people who work in the live music industry who don't have a job right now. He also said, "No one knows when live music will get back on its feet. I've met so many amazing people working venues and touring with bands. Hopefully, we can do something to help some through this song."
Some Twenty One Pilots fans couldn't stop raving about their performance on the show. As they sang 'Level Of Concern', new lyrics that read, "You ask me if it’s real/I see your shifting eyes/You’re dancing in your heels/I dig my hole to die/In a world that’s seen better days" became the spotlight.
Anticipating the song, fans couldn't stop posting about it online but the funniest bit was they had to wait for a long time to see the performance and they sat through Fallon's TikTok videos and even watched him sniff a tree. To top it all, the performance barely lasted for a few minutes but fans were ecstatic to hear them sing and said it was "worth it."
A series of memes have, meanwhile, made their way to social media. "Imagine you're just an average person tuning in to Jimmy Fallon and the musical guest comes on, and you’re bopping along, and then this dude shows up on your screen," one tweet read and another said, "I have watched the Jimmy Fallon program for 2 hours so that TØP only came out for 2 minutes and then just uploaded it to YouTube."
One fan posted a funny message saying, "I stayed up till 4:30 am to watch Jimmy Fallon sniff a tree," along with pictures of the host and started a wave of jokes and sarcastic comments. He clarified, "Just in case this is taken the wrong way, this is 100% a joke!! ofc I’ll wait for the boys to come on, I just thought it was a bit funny to see him have a rendezvous w a tree at 5 am so my mind is deprived AF."
"I was too sleep-deprived to even understand the language he was speaking omg," one fan posted and another wrote, "Damn I thought his house arrest was over. Thank goodness it was something else lol." Another music lover said, "I really just watched Jimmy Fallon do TikTok dances and a guy talk about jackets just so I could see Twenty One Pilots perform. worth it tho."
The show aired on May 22 at 11:35/10:35c on NBC. If you haven't watched the performance yet, catch it on YouTube and enjoy Josh Dun's drumming and vocals. As one fan rightfully pointed out: "Looks like Josh learned the lyrics to this one!"
