If there’s one thing that politi­cians are good at, it’s the “dad dance.”

Luck­ily for Amer­ica, New Jer­sey Gov. Chris Christie, with the help of comedi­an Jimmy Fal­lon, on Thursday night per­formed the Evol­u­tion of Dad Dan­cing. Such dances in­cluded the “Oh, Stop It! I’m Not Em­bar­rass­ing You” and the “Pas­sion­ate El­lipt­ic­al.”

And no Christie mont­age would be com­plete without a ref­er­ence to the Boss. Fal­lon and Christie rock out to the “Dance You Do at a Spring­steen Con­cert.”

But the dan­cing stopped when Fal­lon brought up the in­ev­it­able dance: The “This Bridge is Closed,” where the late-night host waved his fin­ger and the vis­ibly thin­ner Christie ex­ited. Was a Bridgeg­ate joke too soon?

Christie, though, did take the jokes a lot bet­ter from Fal­lon than from comedi­an and day­time talk-show host Joy Be­har back in April.

This is per­fect way for the “Fath­er of the Year” to cel­eb­rate Fath­er’s Day.
