Jan. 15 (UPI) -- New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's likely presidential ambitions took a major hit last week when he apologized for his aide's alleged involvement in the George Washington Bridge traffic jam. But the hard-core Bruce Springsteen fan might feel even more devastated that his idol mocked him in a musical spoof.

Springsteen showed up to Late Night on Wednesday to join Fallon for a duet about so-called "Bridge-gate" set to the tune of "Born to Run."

“The highways jammed with pissed off drivers with no place left to go, and the press conference, it was longer than one of my own damn shows,” sang Springsteen and Fallon, all decked out in "Born in the U.S.A."-era Springsteen garb.

Man, I've gotta take a leak, but I can't," Springsteen crooned. "I'm stuck in Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee, New Jersey traffic jam."

Springsteen previously joined Fallon for a rendition of Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair." It's also a must-watch.
