"Born to Run" parody video shows Jimmy Fallon and Bruce Springsteen mocking New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. The entertainers make light of the recent George Washington Bridge scandal. According to US Weekly on Jan. 15, the "Tonight Show" host and the "Boss" had a great time poking fun at the beleaguered governor.

The duo -- both in sleeveless denim shirts, red bandanas, and sunglasses -- reworked Springsteen's classic 'Born to Run' as 'Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee New Jersey Traffic Jam.'

Born to Run parody was spot on as Christie is a huge fan on New Jersey's native son Springsteen. Biting lyrics are payback and probably stung more than flatters the New Jersey governor. The singers wanted to abide by the song's catchy title but could not as they were very stuck in a massive traffic jam that is one for the record books for sure.

The Born to Run parody tells the story of the traffic jam and ensuing 2-hour long speech that the governor forced people to endure. The spoof has received millions of views on YouTube since its recent release. Springsteen was not please and let loose with both barrels on his fan, Christie.
