Watch Jimmy Fallon Perform ‘Hotline Bling’ as Bob Dylan

That can only mean one thing — pure entertainment


When Jimmy Fallon isn’t accompanying pop heavyweight Adele on her chart-topper “Hello” or nailing a Neil Young impersonation alongside the Monsanto Years hitmaker himself, the Tonight Show host keeps busy by taking on another harmonica-tootin’, guitar-strumming icon, Bob Dylan.

Fallon is known as much for his musical impersonations as his hosting abilities, and his latest sketch involved taking the stage as Sixties’ poet/singer/songwriter/icon Bob Dylan to perform Drake’s [annoyingly catchy] 2015 mega-hit “Hotline Bling,” with a little help from his backing band the Roots.

Sporting an electric guitar, a classic Dylan waistcoat and scarf and a hat tipped low enough to confuse the general masses, Fallon crooned and rasped away, “Ever since I left the city/ You, you, you” before diving into a quaint harmonica fill and finishing off with the chorus.
