Here’s Jimmy Fallon Covering “Hotline Bling” as Bob Dylan

Thursday, January 14th, 2016

I clicked on this and thought, “man Bob looks a lot younger here than he looks in that IBM commercial.” And “did he really agree to do this?” Of course, it’s actually Jimmy impersonating Dylan, covering Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” He absolutely nails Bob’s style, harmonica solo and everything.

The Tonight Show is now in Jimmy Fallon’s hands and that means that The Roots are now the house band for the most respected late night show in the history of Television which is pretty amazing. On last night’s episode, the artist formerly known as The Fresh Prince joined Jimmy for a new take on Judson Laipply’s “The Evolution of Dance”, which for years stood as the most watched video of all time on Youtube. Let’s see if Jimmy and Will’s version can approach those numbers.
