Play Xbox With Your Mom for Jimmy Fallon

Win an Xbox One and a trip to New York for a Tonight Show taping by playing video games with your mom.


Comedian and late night TV host Jimmy Fallon, a longtime and enthusiastic supporter of video games, has announced a new gamer-focused competition for The Tonight Show, and it involves your mom.

The "Xbox With My Mom Contest" is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Basically, all you need to do is upload a video to YouTube of yourself playing video games with your mom. Make sure to add "#XboxWithMyMomContest" to the title.

The grand prize winner will receive an Xbox One console and a trip to New York for a taping of The Tonight Show, among other things. Three runner-ups will receive Xbox One games, Halo and Forza goodies, and Tonight Show memorabilia.

According to the official contest rules, videos must either include an Xbox console/controllers or show no console at all. Videos will be judged on two criteria: appropriateness to the theme (50%) and humor (50%).

You can see all the submission rules here. The deadline to send in your video is May 18.

The contest page is already filled with videos. Take a look at them here. This is actually at least the second time Fallon has asked people to film themselves playing video games with their moms.
