Jimmy Fallon is sending us off into Father's Day weekend with the images we all know too well – whether you're a proud, Phil Dunphy type or his perpetually embarrassed kids.

Fallon – in his latest instalment of 'The Evolution of Dad Dancing' – dressed up in his best over-the-hedges costume and invited New Jersey governor Chris Christie to join him on Thursday's Tonight Show. The pair performed a series of dances, from the well-known 'Lawn Mower' and the 'Belt Grabber' to more over-40 moves like 'Oh, Stop It, I'm Not Embarrassing You', the 'Passionate Elliptical' and the 'This Garbage Isn't Too Full Yet, I Can Do It Tomorrow Morning'.

The skit also poked fun of – or maybe was just conscious of – Christie's political presence, with moves like 'The Republican Convention', 'The Democratic Convention' and the 'This Bridge is Closed'.
