Well, there are worse ways to get famous.

On Wednesday, Jimmy Fallon encouraged Twitter users to submit short introductions for 20 of the presenters at the 62nd annual Emmy Awards, which are set to air on Sunday, Aug. 29 on NBC. Fallon, who is hosting the Emmy ceremony, said he would read the best tweets – along with the handle of the user – as the presenters take the stage.

So, if you've always been dying to say something about Jon Hamm – or John Krasinski of The Office, or Ricky Gervais, or even LL Cool J – now is your chance. "Everyone can join in on the fun and get creative," Fallon told a reporter for Reuters. "We've gotten some good ones already." It's unclear, of course, how much of a grand introduction anyone can gin up in 140 characters or less – but maybe that's the point.
