Drake and Bob Dylan might not seem like a musical match.
And yet, thanks to Jimmy Fallon, the world now knows that they are indeed a perfect pair. On NBC's The Tonight Show Wednesday, the host 41-year-old performed the 29-year-old rapper's "Hotline Bling" in the vein of the 74-year-old rock legend. Dressed as Dylan and with a guitar in hand, he delighted viewers and audience members inside Studio 6-B alike as he gave the song a folksy makeover. "Ever since I left the city, you / You and me we just don't get along / You make me feel like I did you wrong / Going places where you don't belong," Fallon (as Dylan) crooned.
As YouTube commenters pointed out, Fallon's dexterity seems to be back. His ring finger appeared healed after a freak accident over the summer that nearly resulted in an amputation.
"Our performance tonight was LIVE. For real - this was live. Hope you like it. #DylanSingsDrake," Fallon tweeted after the performance aired. In a follow-up tweet, the host wrote, "Wardrobe, hair and make-up plus writing and directing equals #dylansingsdrake #fallontonight."
