Portland, Oregon-based animator Lawrence Becker recalls getting the job to design Fallon's new temporary opening credits out of the blue last month. "It was kind of like an offer I couldn't refuse," he says. "I was like, 'Well it's the Tonight Show. I have to do that.' At first I was like, 'I don't think I have time. I'm too busy,' but then when they said what it was I was like, 'OK, I'm not gonna pass that up. I'll do what I have to." The 22-second video took about 70 hours and several sleepless nights to complete.
