Will Jimmy Fallon swim with manatees wearing merman tail in Citrus County?

Could it be? Citrus County is hoping so. Who wants to see a merman race with Jimmy Fallon, Eric Ducharme (the merman) and how about Justin Timberlake too?

Jimmy Fallon and his Tonight Show will be on the road to tape the show at Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla. from Monday, June 16 to Thursday, June 19, 2014. And Citrus County is hoping that he will make a stop after all the theme park hub-bub and see the real Florida.

The Citrus County Citrus Convention and Visitors Bureau has made it a mission and has started a social media campaign (they even made a YouTube video see video in this article) to get Jimmy to visit Citrus County by daring him to join Eric Ducharme - a real merman, and only tailor of merman tails- Mertailor Mermaid Tails By Eric Ducharme ) in a #swimwithmanatees merman costume.

Check out WFLA interview with Eric Ducharme here. And let's get Jimmy Fallon to #swimwithmanatees !

I agree with Crystal The Manatee ‏@citruscounty. It would be even better if Jimmy's buddy Justin Timberlake would join him!!

"@jtimberlake Get your buddy @jimmyfallon to put on a mermaid's tail and join us! … #jimmyfallonvisitcitrus"

Help Citrus County out, and be sure to send Jimmy Fallon a tweet at @FallonTonight include the hashtags #JimmyFallonVisitCitrus and/or #SwimWiththeManatees.

Be sure to tune into a great segment; Interview with Channel 8 News with Joshua Green! Awesome interview!! ‪#‎latenightshowjimmyfallon‬ ‪#‎jimmyfallon‬ ‪#‎merman‬.

C'mon Jimmy, we dare ya'!!!
