As “Weird Al” Yankovic proved many moons ago, the last stop for pop song popularity is parody. “Weird Al” is still going strong, but Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon has been creeping up on him the past few years with his various impressions of music legends singing current hits.
While I’ll never get enough of “Black Simon & Garfunkel,” Fallon’s Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen and Jim Morrison impressions always seemed to elicit more of a groan than a laugh. However, last night on the Tonight Show Fallon took the song of 2015, “Hotline Bling,” and laid it to rest in the form of 1966-era Bob Dylan. It may not be the viking funeral “Hotline Bling” deserves, but it’s nice to see Fallon still attempting to up his game. Watch below.
