Princetagram iPhone app unveiled by Jimmy Fallon
Who needs sepia when there's a purple filter?
Some of the greatest innovations and stupidest pet tricks come out of late-night television, so it's no surprise that Late Night With Jimmy Fallon introduced Princetagram to the masses this week.
With Prince fan ?uestlove -- who will perform at the Bobby Z's second Benefit 2 Celebrate Life on March 9 -- leading the Roots, Fallon's house band, perhaps this bit of technical wizardry got to jump through the usual copyright hoops a bit faster than you'd expect for the Purple One.
"It's just like Instagram, except it changes your photo to look like a Prince album cover," Fallon explains amidst a segment introducing several iPhone apps. He demonstrates, and the resulting photo puts him on the cover of 1981's Controversy.
As for Fallon's announcer, Steve Higgins, things took a much more revealing turn for this obviously not-fake app.
