Pic of the Day: Great Moments in TypePad History = Not-so-great Moments in Tonight Show History

Dave Itzkoff of the New York Times caught this screen cap at the very very end of last night's Tonight Show with Jay Leno — hey, look, it's musical guest Kevin Eubanks!

197620014But there it is, if you didn't blink and miss it, the small print reads: "Last night's Taylor Swift montage provided by Rich Juzwiak of fourfour.typepad.com and Kate Spencer of thefablife.com"

Juzwiak told the NYT today that getting credit after the fact is a better outcome for him than had he gotten the mention upfront, saying: ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs preferable just in the sense that it gets me more attention,‚Äù Juzwiak said. ‚ÄúA lot more people cared. I feel like a few people would have high-fived me on Twitter if they had seen this thing go down. This reached people who don‚Äôt care about Jay Leno whatsoever, who weren‚Äôt watching his show any way.‚Äù

Previously: The Tonight Show with Jay Leno knowingly ripped off Vh1 bloggers with Taylor Swift video montage.

As a TypePad member myself, I applaud Rich Juzwiak for getting due credit for himself and Spencer.
