Justin Timberlake Shows Us How Dumb We Sound When We Use Hashtags

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon, comedy skit best friends and the human couple equivalent of a pair of colorful striped socks, teamed up yet again to shed light on a disease that's been plaguing phone-connected humans for years now: the ridiculous overuse of hashtags.


That pound sign—which was probably once the least pressed button on a phone's dial pad—has now infiltrated every single social network, every form of text communication and will eventually, override the spoken English language. We need to stop this immediately.

Timberlake and Fallon hilariously recreated a normal human conversation... but with the ridiculousness of hashtags hastily appended to every statement. This is how we all sound like on Twitter. Or on Facebook. Or on Instagram. Or in life. #DIE #YOLO [Jimmy Fallon]

That pound sign

I almost forgot that people think it's a "pound sign".

I don't understand how it's a "pound sign"? Does it mean "Pound sterling" to the complete idiots who haven't seen '£', or do they mean "pound" as in the weight measurement? Or is it something I've never heard of?

It's either "number sign" or "hash". "Pound sign" is completely misleading, we have enough 'pounds' ok.
