Middle Tennessee State University is standing up for its hometown with some good-natured humor directed at "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon regarding the correct pronunciation of the midstate city's name.
In a video filmed Wednesday afternoon that playfully jabbed back, MTSU mass communication student Chris J. Davis "interviewed" students about how to properly say their town's name, and then asking them to name the host of "The Tonight Show..."
MTSU President Sidney McPhee even got in on the fun...
McPhee sent Fallon a care package via overnight mail filled with MTSU and Murfreesboro gear for Fallon to keep or give to his audience. See both the video from the "Tonight Show" and Davis' student "interviews" on WGNSRadio.com.
