Ariana Grande’s Ponytail Gives Jimmy Fallon a Run for His Money in Hilarious Skit


Singer Ariana Grande’s ponytail has become as iconic as her voice through the years, which makes its appearance in a skit on the Wednesday (Sept. 5) episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” so darn funny.

In the pre-taped skit, Grande’s ponytail comes to life, partaking in everything from getting Fallon something cold to drink in the dressing room to handing Grande a tissue after she sneezed.

“Ariana! Wait, wait, wait!” Fallon exclaims in the skit as he watches Grande’s ponytail do these tasks. “When did this thing with your hair start?”

“I mean, I’ve like always worn it in a ponytail,” says Grande, who even eventually lets her ponytail sign an autograph on her new album Sweetener.

The skit concludes with Grande’s ponytail coming to the rescue when ‘it’ notices someone stealing a woman’s purse out in the hallway of the studio. And yes, the long strands of hair end up saving the day.

And while some might smirk at the stupidity of the skit, let’s face it – there’s not much in the world today that can make us laugh anymore. So if you need a break for a little senseless comedy, this just might be the perfect way to spend a few minutes.
