Jimmy Fallon Does A MEAN Neil Young

I don't watch American Idol so I had to get the back story on this. Apparently, when auditioning in Atlanta, the Idol crew was graced with the 62-year-old General Larry Platt who did a rousing original song called Pants on the Ground. You can watch it below.

I guess it went immediately viral and there are scores of YouTube imitations up already. Jimmy Fallon took it one further and did the song as Neil Young on his show last night. It's a pretty amazing impression if you ask me. Anyway, enjoy:

Nice! That's actually quite good on several levels. Also, it good to see that someone on late night NBC is still funny.
