Watch: Ben Stiller Surprises 'Tonight Show''s Jimmy Fallon As Panda to Promote Web Series

In a “touching” segment on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Ben Stiller revealed himself as Hashtag the Panda, confessing that he just wanted Fallon and himself to have their “own thing” all along. He also said that his appearance was to promote “Next Time On Lonny,” the web series he produces.

Created by Alex Anfanger, who stars in the title role, and director Dan Schimpf, the show parodies reality TV and various other genres of film and television, and is currently in  second season. Available on YouTube and Maker.TV, it has been well received: Liz Shannon Miller wrote that “Lonny” “is a stunning trip through pop culture tropes, while remaining original and unique thanks to an emphasis on pushing boundaries and developing characters.”
