Montreal Canadiens, Jimmy Fallon Make Playoff Bet on Twitter

Tonight_Show_Starring_Jimmy_Fallon_IntertitleWith the Eastern Conference Finals underway, The New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens are battling for more than just a shot at the Stanley Cup Finals.

On Friday, the Montreal Canadiens tweeted at Jimmy Fallon and proposed a bet: if the Canadiens beat the Rangers, Fallon must wear a Canadiens jersey during one of his monologues. If the Rangers win, Jimmy Fallon’s face will serve as the Canadiens’ Twitter avatar.

During the ensuing back-and-forth Fallon showed some hesitancy before counter-proposing with what is now the official bet (confirmed during his monologue on Friday night’s show): in addition to what the Canadiens first proposed, if the Rangers win, the Canadiens’ Twitter account must tweet out 10 pictures of their mascot walking around Montreal with a Rangers jersey on.

After the Canadiens accepted Fallon’s counter, the Rangers tweeted: “We got you @jimmyfallon! #NYRPlayoffs.”

Here’s the exchange via Storify, also published on the Canadiens’ website:

In fact, when we asked Sabrina Caluori, HBO’s VP of Social Media/Marketing, about how HBO Connect tied into the network’s overall social media and social TV strategy, she was unabashed about its significance: “It is our digital marketing secret weapon. We have the ability to dream up social media activations big and small and give them a platform agnostic home in a branded environment – without big build costs each and every time.” HBO Connect uses Mass Relevance’s capabilities and the landing page for each HBO show will be able to integrate its tools differently according to its own strategy. We spoke with Caluori about the updates to HBO Connect, the role of Mass Relevance, and where she thinks social TV is headed. Read more
