WATCH: Jeb Bush Slow Jams the News With Jimmy Fallon


While the next presidential election might be over a year and a half away, that's not stopping some presidential hopefuls from trying to win the hearts and minds of American voters.

Following in the footsteps of President Obama and Mitt Romney's attempts at poking fun at themselves, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush -- who announced he would be campaigning for the GOP nomination on Monday -- joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Tuesday to slow jam the news.

In the role often occupied by Brian Williams, who is currently serving a six-month unpaid suspension from the NBC Nightly News, Jeb accompanied Jimmy for a stylized interpretation of today's headlines.

If you've never seen the sketch (what's wrong with you?!), it basically involves a straight-laced public figure reading actual bits of news. Then, Jimmy adds his own sexy, double entendre-filled interpretation of that news, set to '70s love-making music.

After Jeb explains his decision to join the presidential race, after a lengthy period of consideration, Jimmy's sensual vocals explain, "Oooh yeah. The Governor thought LONG and HARD about joining the GOP race. After months of being a total caucus tease, Jeb finally made up his mind, and quit beatin' around the bush."

There's no way to tell if it will help Jeb snag some votes come November 2016, but at least it was funny.
