Jimmy Fallon

Canadiens mascot Youppi! learned the hard way not to bet against Jimmy Fallon. The fuzzy creature had to pose around Montreal in a New York Rangers jersey after Fallon’s hometown squad beat the Canadiens in the Eastern Conference Finals.

“I’m coming for you, Youppi,” Jimmy Fallon said on The Tonight Show after placing the bet.

Ironically, the Canadiens Twitter feed started this Jimmy Fallon bet in the first place. After New York and Montreal advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals, the latter team proposed the below wager through its Twitter account.

However, Jimmy Fallon was not satisfied with this bet, so the Canadiens upped the stakes. Eventually, the two sides settled on the below terms.

The Rangers clinched the Eastern Conference Finals win over the Canadiens last week and advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals. This clearly did not make Youppi! very happy.

Indeed, the Montreal Canadiens and their mascot paid off their Jimmy Fallon bet on Sunday. First, the team’s Twitter handle changed its avatar to a picture of  New York Rangers star goalie Henrik Lundqvist playing guitar on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. This was somewhat fitting, since Lundqvist posted a shutout in the Rangers’ series-clinching victory.

And all throughout the day on Sunday, Youppi! visited various Montreal landmarks with a Fallon Rangers jersey on his back. The photos were either incredibly sad or hilarious, depending on which team you rooted for in the Eastern Conference Finals. You can see the Youppi! photos for yourself below.
