If Chris Christie thought things were tough in the immediate aftermath of his Bridgegate scandal, then today is probably a new low for New Jersey's Governor, as his hero, Bruce Springsteen, joined in the late night antics on Monday with a parody song on Fallon.

The segment starts with Fallon doing his best impression of The Boss, crooning about the scandal.

When he's joined on-stage by Springsteen himself, things get that much better. This is the pinnacle of Bridgegate jokes. An American classic re-tooled by Christie's own hero. If you weren't excited for Fallon to take over The Tonight Show before...
