Fallon does Tebow does Bowie

Possibly the best thing evah?

Tebowmania is just getting started. And the newest way people are poking fun at Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is in song.

On “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” the show’s host has created a new character – TeBowie. The concept merges David Bowie circa “Ziggy Stardust” with the high-profile QB.

Fallon, dressed with full Bowie-style make-up and a Denver Broncos uniform, performed the classic song “Space Oddity” during his early Friday (Jan. 13) broadcast. The twist, of course, is the tune features lyrics that reflect Tebow’s religious sentiment.

Roll 212!

Oh hey — it’s comedian joking that Jesus is tired of hearing from Tim Tebow! LOL!!!

It’s not like we haven’t heard this same exact joke daily for years or anything like that.

(besides, Fallon’s Jim Morrison impersonation was far better)

I love it! Watching a cynical, spiritually bankrupt man emulate a man of faith tells me there is hope. Even Jimmy Fallon is attracted to the sincere virtue of Tim Tebow.

Who knew that Tebow’s difficult trip through the NFL would also turn out to be a sort of missionary effort? Pastor Tim, and his magic left arm.

True, but TeBowie is hilarious and original, and whether or not you agree with the lyrics is does work. Besides, the costume is hilarious. What was David thinking?

This guy still has a show?

It was kind of funny but somehow i felt there was a mean and spiteful undertone to it.

Funny, yet spiteful and ignorant. There’s a reason Christian nations typically have Saturday and Sunday off. God rested on Saturday (traditionally) and Sunday became the day of worship for the apostles and disciples after Christ rose.

Frankly, that’s why the Broncos lost on Saturday :) . God was resting. If the Patriots/Broncos had been on Sunday . . . J/K

Seriously, I am proud of Tim for being so forthright about his faith, but I’m sure even Tim doesn’t think God plays favorites in football games.
