Don't Push Play: Tim Tebow + David Bowie = Tebowie - Reverb

Don’t Push Play: Jimmy Fallon merges Tebow and Bowie for late-night goodness

Jimmy Fallon will never have the improvisational, reactionary “quip” skills that made late-night hosts Johnny Carson, David Letterman and Conan O’Brien cultural icons. Perhaps more so than all of the above, though, Fallon has mastered the art of the parody. From Neil Young to Charlie Sheen, Fallon loses himself in the character and executes. In “Tebowie” below, the vocal cadences and trance-like Bowie gaze are impressive enough, let alone the lyrics that correspond effortlessly to “Space Oddity.”

The bigger issue: Do you think the Zac Brown, Lady Antebellum-loving Tebow even fully gets the joke?

    Jimmy Fallon, totally the best take on Tebow. A classic. I hope once the Broncos are done on Saturday the Tim Tebow wave will fade.

    Simply wow. Tebow is a man to look up to because he does things for the right reason. And you think this garbage is funny?!? Glad he has his priorities in the right place.
