While the 2020 Democratic Town Hall went on last night on CNN, Jimmy Fallon poked fun at one of the leading candidates with “Old Town Hall.” During last night’s episode of The Tonight Show, Fallon did his best impression of Bernie Sanders while remixing Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road.” Fallon took on the role of Bernie for the first half before Black Thought rolled through assuming the role of Billy Ray Cyrus on the track. The two mainly poked fun at Sanders’ age and towards the end, Fallon hops on an electric mobility scooter. You could check the clip below.
Lil Nas X has taken the world by storm with “Old Town Road.” The backlash Billboard received after removing the song off of the Billboard chart later helped Lil Nas X land a feature from Billy Ray Cyrus. Since then, it’s maintained its position at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for three consecutive weeks and went on to break Drake’s one-week streaming record. It’s also the number one song in the U.K. this week.
Although the song has a strong mainstream presence, it hasn’t won over everybody. Last week, Dave East shared his unfiltered thoughts on the genre-blending track. “I ain’t no hater, man, but that shit is wack with a cape on it. It’s super wack,” he said. Nas X responded in a recent interview, saying that having the number one song in the country outweighs the Harlem rapper’s opinion.
