Meet the Punk Singer Behind "The Smiths" Shirt From 'Jimmy Fallon'

FUSE TV - Meet the Punk Singer Behind "The Smiths" Shirt From 'Jimmy Fallon'

We saw plenty of star power on Monday night’s debut episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy FallonLady Gaga and Mariah Carey made cameos, U2 performed and Will Smith was his first interview guest. After chatting with the former Fresh Prince, the new Tonight Show host presented him with a gift: A t-shirt picturing Will Smith's family doctored up to look like a tee from the incredibly influential English rock band The Smiths. Check out the exchange and the shirt in the video above.

As it would turn out, the “Smith Family” shirt was created by a punk frontman named Chris Farren, who sings and plays guitar in the Naples, FL-based indie punk act Fake Problems. Farren had no idea his Morrissey-inspired shirt was going to appear on national television, and he immediately tweeted his surprise after seeing Fallon hand his work to Will Smith. We reached out to learn more.
