UPDATE (5:18 pm): The New York Times is reporting that NBC “will acknowledge the work of Mr. Juzwiak and his co-worker” on the Tonight Show this evening. Does this mean Jay will say the words “TheFABLife” on air? How bad will he slaughter the pronunciation of Rich’s last name? Enquiring minds want to know!
rnrnNow we know how Conan O’Brien feels! Do you remember the “Taylor Swift Is Always Surprised!” supercut from last week, the one that our friend and cohort Rich Juzwiak put together for us? Well, not to brag or anything, but it was viewed over 200,000 times last week and caught the attention of quite a few major media outlets, including NBC’s Tonight Show. In fact, Rich traded emails with one of Jay Leno’s cronies about our video last week, as the Tonight Show had intentions of using parts of it during their interview with Taylor Swift that ran last night. Which, to be honest, we were quite excited about!rnrnThat is, until we actually saw the interview. Rather than hearing “VH1″ or “TheFABLife” or even Rich’s name on air, Jay Leno instead told Taylor that “We put together a little montage of you being surprised,” failing to acknowledge our contribution in even the tiniest way. Needless to say, we are a bit peeved that Jay Leno stole our idea and didn’t properly credit us, but what can you do? We are hearing rumblings that Jay is going to make up for it during tonight’s show, but we aren’t going to hold our breath.rnrnrnrnIf you want to read more details about Jay’s thieving ways, head on over to either Rich’s personal blog, FourFour, or Kate Spencer’s Tumblr for the whole story! And, if you missed it the first time around, here’s the original supercut, “Taylor Swift Is Always Surprised”:rnrn
