Springsteen & Fallon rock out on 'Bridgegate' duet

NEED TO KNOW
  • Late night host and 'The Boss' take on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's recent scandal
  • Bruce Springsteen's new album 'High Hopes' came out Tuesday

Who better to parody Bruce Springsteen than the Boss himself?

How about TWO bosses?

Dressed as "The Boss" circa 1985, complete with red bandana headband and sleeveless jean jacket, Fallon took to the stage to perform a version of "Born to Run" that skewered "Bridgegate," the political influence scandal that has dominated headlines in Springsteen's home state of New Jersey lately.

But just over a minute into Fallon's spot-on imitation, Springsteen himself joined the comedian at the mike. Together they continued to musically lay into Christy and the traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge some believe was needlessly caused when the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee, New Jersey, refused to endorse Christy for governor in the last election. Check the chorus:

"You're killing the working man, who’s stuck in Governor Chris Christie’s Fort Lee, New Jersey traffic jam!"

No word yet from Christie, an unabashed Springsteen fan, who even told volunteers at a Superstorm Sandy benefit that he was brought to tears after meeting the singer.

Last year, Christie had his own Springsteen moment on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." The governor and the comedian teamed up to sing "Thunder Road" the day after Christie saw his 130th Springsteen concert!
