Watch Jimmy Fallon Sing “Hotline Bling” As ’70s Bob Dylan
Jimmy Fallon has a recurring bit in which he impersonates Neil Young covering various modern pop hits including Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” and Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy.” That gag apparently ran its course last year when Young himself showed up to perform “Old Man” alongside Fallon-as-Young, so on last night’s Tonight Show, Fallon impersonated a different iconic folk-rocker. This time it was Rolling Thunder Revue-era Bob Dylan doing Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” This version, which adopted the melody and chords from Dylan’s own “Positively 4th Street,” bore little resemblance to Aubrey Graham’s original, but then, the real Dylan doesn’t even stay true to his own songs in concert. Watch below.
