Seriously, the guy looked great, and totally outshined Fallon during a brilliantly choreographed routine in which the two demonstrated the one thing all dads have in common"”hilarious dance moves!
Christie and Fallon must have rehearsed this bit a good deal beforehand, because the two were impressively in sync while boogying down on The Tonight Show"”and I'm sure the Gov.'s recent 80-some pound weight loss helped him power through two and half minutes of moves such as the "Belt Grabber" and the "Oh Stop it I'm Not Embarrassing You," like a pro.
I like Chris Christie. Probably for all the wrong reasons, because I don't know a great deal about him as a politician other than that he did a pretty thorough job of cleaning up the Jersey shore after Hurricane Sandy, and somehow established the lowest statewide gas prices in the U.S. But why I really like Christie is because he's shamelessly unapologetic and never puts up with nonsense from reporters. He's always had a good sense of humor about himself, which was reaffirmed last night when he good-naturedly let Fallon poke fun at last year's scandal by naming one of the Dad moves the "This Bridge is Closed."
Plus, it turns out that Chris Christie can not only dance, but also do it with a comedic stage presence comparable to that of Chris Farley in the Chippendale's sketch. Let's hope Jimmy Fallon invites the governor back soon. Chris Christie's appearance was the first time `The Tonight Show' actually made me laugh in a long time.
