Chris Christie makes fun of himself and his fleece jacket in new parody video

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has found the ultimate way to distract the media from his recent lap-band surgery andspider-killing incident.

During his remarks at Tuesday night’s New Jersey Legislative Correspondents Club Show, Christie debuted a seven-minute parody of himself and the hoopla surrounding the infamous fleece jacket he wore in the days immediately following Superstorm Sandy last October.

The gist of the video is that the jacket mysteriously disappears from its glass casing at the state capitol, and despite Christie’s assurances that the jacket is just that – a jacket – he finds his massive popularity within the stateplummet and all of his so-called friends, including his idol Bruce Springsteen, start to distance themselves from the vociferous governor. Ultimately the jacket is found, but you’ll never guess who was in possession of it!

The skit is also jam packed with cameo appearances from Jon Bon Jovi, James Carville, “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, Alec Baldwin and more.

“There’s that guy again — he ain’t nothin’ without his fleece,” New Jersey native Bon Jovi quips during the video.
