What started out as a Twitter campaign for Franklin Senior, Andrew Kochamba, to shadow Jimmy Fallon (#AndrewShadowJimmy) became a reality yesterday.
Kochamba flew to New York to spend the day with Fallon. As we shared in our story yesterday, there were questions asked of Fallon about what was the best part of his job and how he got started in the business and more.
Then last night, we got word that Andrew would appear on a commercial before The Tonight Show aired. In case you missed it,watch the clip below that WSMV shared. At the end of the clip, Fallon says,”Andrew, you did it!”
A Franklin High School student's dream to job shadow Jimmy Fallon came true today. You won't want to miss 'The Tonight Show' right after Channel 4 News at 10:00!
