Jimmy Fallon + David Bowie + Tim Tebow = Tebowie

January 13, 2012 | 11:30 am

I used to not like Jimmy Fallon. When he was on "Saturday Night Live" as a regular, he spent way too much time laughing during skits. But ever since he got his own late-night show, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," he has become one of my favorite comedians.

Last night, he did it again. Known for his musical impersonations and parodies, Fallon took the stage dressed as a cross between David Bowie and Tim Tebow, better known as Tebowie.

Fallon performed Bowie's classic "Space Oddity" with all new lyrics. "Ground control to Major Tom" became  "Tim Tebow to Jesus Christ." It was brilliant (you can watch the whole thing in the video above).

Thanks for the laugh, Fallon. Here's a suggestion if the Broncos lose to the Patriots this weekend: Tim Tebow + Bono = Tebono, singing a rewritten "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For."

And remember, it's Tim Tebow's world, we are just living in it.
