Jimmy Fallon spoofs Julian Castro's DNC speech for the 2012 event. After Castro, the Mayor of San Antonio, Texas, took the stage at the Democratic National Convention to make a speech in endorsement of current President Barack Obama, Twitter had an outbreak of identity comparisons to Jimmy Fallon.

Fallon, picking up on this, made the genius idea to parody the political figure with his own DNC ideas. Using his conveniently similar look, Fallon took the stage of his Late Night show to speak his mind on the Republican Presidential nominee using the persona of Julian Castro.

The hilarious video shows one of the best sides of comedy. As was learned through the Tina Fey/Sarah Palin impersonations, comedians can take politics to a new level and insert an interesting and relatable perspective. Stats for Comedian Twin Gags Trending: Older & Chilly
