    I'm sure many of you have already seen this and if its been posted previously I apologize ... but this video of Fallon channeling Jim Morrison singing the Reading Rainbow theme is scary accurate. The band players made to resemble The Doors and the Ed Sullivan set is a brilliant touch to Fallon's impression.

    He has funny skits and his musical ones are great. Too bad his monologue and interviewing skills are shit.

    I'd not go so far as to call him "brilliant" in general, based on this one achievement. HOWEVER... this IS quite the win for him. The impression is spot-fucking-on.
    Had it been all audio, I would have literally thought it was Morrison. No question. And I'd have been questioning the Reading Rainbow-Doors connection.
    And the gestures, body language, etc were great. Holy shit.
