Jimmy Fallon just turned a hashtag into the real thing.
#PhelpsFace became the rave of Rio 2016 with social media creating hilarious memes and everything.
Michael Phelps was a guest on “The Tonight Show” on Thursday night, where he revealed to host Jimmy Fallon that he had a viral feeling about the face immediately.
“I was sitting in the ready room and I remember – I always know there’s two cameras in the upper right-hand corner, right before we walk out – and I’m like sitting there, spitting water, like what is going on? As I’m making a face, I was like, ‘Yup, that’s on camera. Someone will pick that one up tomorrow.'”
Fallon then presented Phelps with a life-sized cutout of his face as well.
