The Queen City got a shout out on late night U.S. television on Tuesday night.
Jimmy Fallon played “Experience Regina” on his “Do Not Playlist."
In 2008, the Tourist Board of Saskatchewan uploaded a slideshow featuring the song — and it quickly went viral in the province.
Since then, the song has made its across Canada. When the Memorial Cup came to Regina last month, Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole played the song on TSN’s SC with Jay and Dan.

Regina's mayor also weighed in on the song's success on the show.
.@jimmyfallon The @FallonTonight team seemed excited to “experience Regina” last night! As Mayor (and a fan) I would love to invite you to @CityofRegina to experience it first-hand, or I could pay you a visit and tell you more. After all, in a way aren’t we all from Regina?— Michael Fougere (@MayorFougere) June 20, 2018
