She’d already clinched the gold in the women’s halfpipe, becoming the youngest snowboarding gold medalist in Olympic history. But 17-year-old Long Beach, California, native Chloe Kim couldn’t help having some fun in her final run, busting out back-to-back 1080s for a final, near-perfect score of 98.25.
Basking in the glow of her newfound fame, she also couldn’t help having some fun with her adoring fans at 30 Rock. The fans were posing for pictures on a faux Olympic medal podium, smiling for the camera with absolutely no clue who was hiding in the wings.
A montage of photos showing Chloe and “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon photobombing the unsuspecting fans at the podium aired during the “Fallon Five” segment last week, and they’re nothing short of hilarious!
The sneaky duo pounces out in silly poses and with a variety of props, from fake Olympic torches to gold medals (of course, only Jimmy’s was fake!), even sharing a massive hoagie:
And the fans are nothing short of thrilled, because who wouldn’t want these two goofballs in their photos?
But the surprises kept coming! Chloe’s and her adorable Aussie’s grinning faces already grace the cover of the latest Sports Illustrated edition. But “the pinnacle for any athlete is to be on the cover of a Kellogg’s Corn Flakes box. It is. Was this something you would aspire to and want to have happen?” Jimmy asked.
When she replies that she’d be “down with that,” in her trademark laid-back style, Jimmy’s already about ready to burst: “Well, I have an announcement to make. I am so happy to tell you this: Chloe Kim, you officially made the cover of a box of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes!”
Check out Chloe’s ecstatic reaction in the clip below, and remember to share to spread some laughter!
