Bruce Springsteen and Fallon Did an Amazing Chris Christie Parody

Last night on Late Night, Jimmy Fallon came out dressed as New Jersey-born rock legend Bruce Springsteen to perform a parody of Springsteen's "Born to Run," rewritten to make fun of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's recent bridge scandal.


While a Fallon-helmed parody certainly has its charms, it's not something that's necessarily remarkable — that is, it wasn't remarkable until he was joined by the Boss himself. Both clad in all-denim, the pair joined rough, blue-collar voices (that spoke of long days spent working in the factory) to sing "Gov. Christie Traffic Jam," a song that's sure to cut Christie (a diehard Springsteen fan) to the quick.


Side note: Bruce Springsteen is 64 years old and still has arms like goddamn pythons.

It's been known that Chris Christie has sort of an obsession with Springsteen so I imagine he might take this quite personally.

Christie recalled meeting Springsteen three days earlier at the benefit concert.

“We hugged,” Christie said. “He told me it’s official: We’re friends. I told the president today, actually, that the hug was great and when we got home, there was a lot of weeping because of the hug. And the president asked why. I said, ‘Well, to be honest, I was the one doing the weeping.’ ”
