Justin Timberlake, who caused a stir this week by shooting an illegal selfie in a Tennessee voting booth, used “The Tonight Show” to deliver a timely message to the American people.
“Get out and vote but, uh,” he said Wednesday, before applause interrupted him. “Don’t take a picture of yourself.”
Luckily for the singer, he won’t face charges.
Timberlake told host Jimmy Fallon that he “had no idea” of the trouble his selfie could cause. “I was like, this is gonna be great and inspire people to vote!”
Maybe it worked anyway.
Watch the clip above.
