One thing that might explain the hilarity associated with the overuse of hashtags by twitter users, is this new video released by singer/actor Justin Timberlake and TV show host Jimmy Fallon. In the video, the duo are seen conversing about their daily routines, but manage to fit in hashtags after almost every word.

The video released on YouTube on September 24, and in just a matter of four days has already had 63 lakh views. In the video the duo can be seen discussing their daily routines — such as visiting the dentist, flossing teeth, gearing up for halloween, eating cookies, what colour is the new black and lastly even the acronym LOL (Laugh Out Loud) — which is recreated in a normal conversation, but loaded with hashtags. Viewers on Youtube seem to have taken a major liking to the video.

One of the viewers, Thisfoxxx, said, “I know people who do actually talk like this. #yoloswag”. Another viewer, Muhammad Lafi posted, “There’s NoWayThat’sGonnaFitOn1­40Charecters”.
