"TeBOWIE" - A Hilarious New Skit by Jimmy Fallon

Enjoy Jimmy Fallons new character that has gone viral, TeBOWIE.

Jimmy Fallon has really outdone himself with his new character that combines the latest cultural phenomenon, Tim Tebow with rock icon and legend David Bowie. This produces Fallon's new character, TeBOWIE. TeBOWIE was unveiled this past Thursday on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and has since gone viral.

This is absolutely genius concept. During his skit Fallon uses the music to the famous song Space Oddity by David Bowie. In it, he wittingly replaces the words to fit Tim Tebow communicating with Jesus Christ and vice versa. This produces a hilarious spin on Tim Tebow and his beliefs about who is helping him win football games.

While a similar concept was done on Saturday Night Live a few weeks back, with Jesus visiting the Broncos locker room after a game and telling Tim Tebow he needed to "back up and give the Holy Ghost a little space." and that Tebow needed to focus on doing things himself, which Fallon also does, this one is done in an even funnier manner.

For those of you who are too young to remember the famous song by David Bowie, I have put the original lyrics below along with Fallon's new lyrics.

The Original Lyrics; Space Oddity by David Bowie

Ground control to major Tom
Ground control to major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
(Ten) Ground control (Nine) to major Tom (Eight)
(Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four)
(Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may gods (Blastoff) love be with you

This is ground control to major Tom, you've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is major Tom to ground control, I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
Here am I sitting in a tin can far above the world
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles, I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows
Ground control to major Tom, your circuits dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, major Tom?
Can you hear me, major Tom?
Can you hear me, major Tom?
Can you...
Here am I sitting in my tin can far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do

Jimmy Fallon's Lyrics sung by TeBOWIE

Tim Tebow to Jesus Christ

Tim Tebow to Jesus Christ

Can’t win by myself but with your help I might

(Ten)Tim Tebow (Nine) to Jesus Christ(Eight)

(Seven, SIx) Commencing 4th (Five) down hut hut hike (Four)

(Three, Two) Snap the football (One) and (Touchdown) may God’s love be with me


This is Jesus Christ to Tim Tebow

Please leave me alone

Don’t you know my day of rest is Sunday

And I’m sick of watching all these Broncos Games

I hear that you play New England next week

Dude you're on your own

Brady is too good and I’ve got better things to do!


Though I’ve passed 316 yards there’s still two games to go

If I want to make it to the Super Bowl

And show everyone on Earth how to Tebow

Tim Tebow to Jesus Christ

the Broncos won we’re still alive

C’mon everyone Tebow

C’mon everyone Tebow

C’mon everyone Tebow

C'mon everyone Tebow

This skit will surely become an all time classic in the realm of Adam Sandler's Hannukah Song, Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo's take on Ebony and Ivory by Stevie Wonder and Frank Sinatra, and other great iconic skits that have been done over the years. Although, I am pretty sure this will make many die hard Tebow fans very upset.

      I loved Jimmy Fallon on SNL, especially when he played the Masshole who loved "Nomarrr" He also did a spot on impression of Neil Young the last 2 times Bruce Springsteen guested. I'd watch him more if he wasn't on so late.

      I agree! Jimmy Fallon is a comedic genius whose talents know no end. To put two different icons together is amazing and the way it makes it work is seamless. Great hub!
