VIDEO: Jimmy Fallon Reveals Beatles Were on Social Media on TONIGHT
Marking the 50th anniversary of The Bealles first TV appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, Jimmy Fallon revealed some "never-before-seen footage" of the Fab Four's US television debut which shows that the group was clearly ahead of their time when it comes to social media.
Performing "I Want to Hold Your Hand," with Fallon (as John Lennon) and new 'Tonight Show' bandleader Fred Armisen (as Ringo Starr) the musicians announced, "We're the Beatles! Don't forget to like us on Facebook! And you can follow us on Twitter at @TheBeatlesUK!".
Fallon also told a screaming audience of fans that they can be found on Instagram, The_Beatles1, "for some Throwback Thursdays!" And if you're a Vine user, the Beatles have something for you too.

Beginning Feb. 17, 2014, Emmy Award and Grammy Award winner Jimmy Fallon will bring NBC's "The Tonight Show" back to its New York origins when he launches "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" from Rockefeller Center. Fallon will put his own stamp on the storied NBC late-night franchise with his unique comedic wit, on-point pop culture awareness, welcoming style and his impeccable taste in music with the award-winning house band, The Roots.
Fallon began his TV career with "Saturday Night Live" in 1998, where he quickly became an audience favorite. Known for his spot-on impressions, hilarious sketches and his stint with Tina Fey as co-anchor of "Weekend Update," Fallon spent six successful years on the show. In March 2009, he returned to NBC and took over the "Late Night" legacy with "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." The show consistently garners attention for its viral videos, celebrity games and A-list guests.
