Chris Christie does 'The Evolution of Dad Dancing' with Jimmy Fallon

Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) made a special appearance Thursday on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, as the show's host honored the upcoming Father's Day weekend with "The Evolution of Dad Dancing."

The routine was a sequel of sorts to Fallon's sketch in early 2013, when he donned women's clothing to act out "The Evolution of Mom Dancing" alongside First Lady Michelle Obama.

Fallon and Christie displayed such stereotypical Dad moves as the "Belt Grabber," the "Oh Stop! I'm Not Embarrassing You," the "Dance You Do At A Springsteen Concert," and many others. There was also the "Back It Up," which cannot be unseen.

Christie did display some mock outrage, however, when Fallon sprung the "This Bridge Is Closed" dance on him. But although he briefly stormed off the stage at this reference to the ongoing scandal that has rocked his administration, he came right back as soon as the Springsteen music started up once more. --Eric Kleefeld
