Jimmy Fallon channels Jim Morrison, awesomeness ensues

Jimmy Fallon as Jim Morrison (The Doors) sings the Reading Rainbow theme

This is the coolest thing you’ll probably see all week, which is a bit depressing since it’s only Monday. Still, you need to see this. It’s Jimmy Fallon (as Jim Morrison) and some random white guys performing the theme to Reading Rainbow as the Doors. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that his house band, The Roots, were really the ones playing on this.

Pretty brilliant. The recreation of the Doors’ look from their Ed Sullivan Show appearance is damn good, and I guess now we know which way Jimmy wears his leather pants. Between seeing this and his Barry Gibb Talk Show sketches, I’m thinking maybe Saturday Night Live should’ve kept Jimmy and dumped Seth Meyers.
