Jimmy Fallon Impersonates Neil Young Singing 'The Fresh Prince of Bel Air' On Letterman

Last night, Jimmy Fallon appeared on Letterman’s show, and in the process, did an impersonation of Neil Young singing “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” which he did on his own show in full a while back (there’s only a verse included in this clip from Dave’s show). But more than the song, I just kind of appreciate the momentous collision of new and nostalgia: A guy I grew up idolizing chatting with the third guy to host “Late Night,” and by my account, anyway, Fallon is the best thing going on late night right now, an infection, over-zealous, earnest little puppy who will lick your face until you completely give in. There could not be two more guys further on the opposite ends of the spectrum, Cranky vs. Exuberant, and yet they both epitomize all it is I love about late night.

Check the clip.
