In the adorable clip, the kids are delighted when they realize who's standing behind them
In a new clip, the Tonight Show host teaches the PBS stars a lesson in photobombing: “Okay guys. Be quiet. We’re doing a photobomb. You know what a photobomb is, right?” Fallon, 41, tells Elmo, the Cookie Monster and Abby Cadabby.
“Well, a photobomb is when someone takes a picture and then we jump in the background and surprise them, and then they don’t know that we’re there until they see it on their phone.” (Fallon is quite the photobomb expert – last year he pranked unsuspecting football fans on the NBC Super Bowl red carpet in Phoenix with Chris Pratt and Chris Evans.)
