Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Fallon perform Chris Christie parody song
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is taking another hit on the "Bridge-gate" scandal, however, this time it's from one of his biggest idols: New Jersey native Bruce Springsteen.
The legendary singer appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Tuesday, Jan. 14, to perform a parody song set to "Born to Run" with Fallon, who was dressed up just like Springsteen.
The song was about the George Washington Bridge lane closure in September and the subsequent fall out after it came to light that Christie's aides had a hand in orchestrating the traffic tie-up. Christie has denied any involvement with the lane shut down, according to Politico.
Fallon started off the parody song, which can be seen here (Warning: video contains explicit language) as he was introduced on stage as Springsteen.
Clad in a denim sleeveless shirt with a red bandana tied around his head, sunglasses on and a guitar in hand, Fallon sang, "In the day we sweated out on the streets, stuck in traffic on the GWB. / They shut down the tollbooths of glory 'cuz we didn't endorse Christie."
Springsteen himself later joined Fallon on stage and sang, "Governor let me in, I want to be your friend, there'll be no partisan divisions. / Let me wrap my legs 'round your mighty ribs, relieve your stressful condition."
"And the press conference went on and on," Fallon sang before Springsteen joined in and said, "It was longer than one of my own damn shows!"
The two ended the song to cheers from the audience and a few fans chanting "Bruce!"
