“Happy birthday @jimmyfallon – from your Instagram boyfriend,” the “Can’t Stop the Feeling” singer captioned a clip of himself filming Fallon as the latter performed a rendition of The Doors’ “Roadhouse Blues ” in front of what appears to be a small party. “I’m so proud of the man you’ve become. My phone could never capture the beauty of your aura. I can’t imagine my feed without you. You complete me.”
Meanwhile, on his Instagram Stories, Fallon shared a sweet motivational quote to his followers to celebrate his big day. “Everyone looks better when they smile,” the comedian told the camera. “So smile, have a nice day. It’s my birthday! Have fun. Take the day off.”
The longtime friends first met 20 years ago at the 2002 MTV VMAs and have since become best friends, appearing in a number of funny sketches together and support each other’s careers. “The funny thing about our friendship, even when it kind of started, I just remember that nothing was that serious,” Timberlake shared of their 2020 bromance during a virtual one, in quarantine The Tonight Show appearance. “We started doing bits back and forth… and that’s all we do now,” he laughed as they recalled the insane amount of protein shakes Fallon drank when they went on safari in Africa together.
