VIRAL VIDEO: Piccolo Girl’s 15 minutes extended by Jimmy Fallon

The piccolo girl’s “15 minutes” is in overtime.

Her appearance on The Tonight Show, sitting in with The Roots, has now gotten nearly 1.2 million views.

The #PiccoloGirl is Roxanne Chalifoux, a senior at Villanova, who has taken Twitter, Vine and Instagram by storm.

The video and images of her tears as Villanova suffered a stunning defeat 68-71 loss to North Carolina State over the weekend became a viral meme.

And now she’s having a second wave of fame on YouTube.

“It’s absolutely mind-blowing,” she told Jimmy Fallon. “All I thought I did was cry on national television.”

“It’s a funny story. In the very beginning, I’m looking up at the Jumbotron, so I saw myself on it,” Roxanne recalled. “And all I could think about was my dad at the game and I didn’t want him to see me crying. But then it turned into like, everyone saw me crying.”

That we did, Roxanne!
