When Jimmy Fallon decides to get into character, it is quite the treat. The late night host has been known to channel some of the greatest performers and he has added Bob Dylan to his list this week. Fallon performed "Hotline Bling" as Dylan yesterday and it was just amazing. If you don't believe us, watch the video for yourself.
Fallon channeled Dylan with the outfit, the hair, the voice and even the harmonica. He belted out Drake's "Hotline Bling" before performing his harmonica solo. Fallon was even introduced as Bob Dylan! The whole performance was directed with an old hand held camera that makes it look like an old 60's video. "Our performance tonight was LIVE. For real - this was live. Hope you like it," Fallon wrote on Twitter.
This isn't Fallon's first time impersonating "Hotline Bling." He turned the hit track into what he called Star Wars raps back in December. And in November he revamped the single into a holiday tune with Rashida Jones.
In other great Fallon news, according to Fox News, an NBC Entertainment Chairman, Bob Greenblatt has publicly defended Fallon from the accusations that he has a drinking problem. "He goes out and has fun, and he's had some accidents," stated Greenblatt, "There's been conversations about that, [but] the stories are exaggerated about all of it."
The NY Post first released an article stating that NBC was worried about Fallon's behavior after multiple injuries. The article went on to say that his injuries were a result of his drinking problem. Now, NBC has said otherwise so we are guessing that's good news. But what took them so long?
