Jimmy Fallon and Bruce Springsteen Take on Bridgeghazi

What if Bruce Springsteen’s runaway broken heroes just got stuck in traffic in Fort Lee? That’s the premise of this segment from last night’s Late Night With Fallon, in which Fallon and the Boss reimagined “Born to Run” as “Gov. Chris Christie Traffic Jam.”

Christie is, of course, famous for being one of Springsteen’s biggest fans. Who knows whether he’ll take this with a sense of humor or respond to the Boss, once again, by weeping.
