Watch: LDS Student Earns "Tonight Show" Internship by Acting as Jimmy Fallon in Clever Video

LDS student Nick Garrett isn't exactly a Jimmy Fallon look-alike, but he sure does know how to get a good laugh—and a good internship.

As part of his internship application for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Garrett created a clever shot-by-shot remake of the intro of the show while acting as the show's host, Jimmy Fallon. 

"I know that The Tonight Show is one of the most sought after internships in the country, so I wanted to come up with something that could potentially make me stand out from all the other candidates while also showing my creativity and production skills," Garrett wrote in an email to CNET.

For more than a month, the Weber State University communication major scouted out locations in Salt Lake City to match the video and even spent $800 to rent instruments that matched those used by the show's house band. 

But his hard work paid off when he found out The Tonight Show selected him as the show's new intern.
