New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has taken quite a bit of criticism over his decision to order a special election to fill the senate seat left behind after Frank Lautenberg’s passing. However, he showed he was willing to poke fun at himself when he made a surprise appearance on NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" show Wednesday night.

Christie participated in one of Fallon's most popular sketches, "Slow Jam the News." Fallon poked fun at Christie's weight numerous times and even joked with the governor of New Jersey about announcing he is running for president in 2016. The future host of “The Tonight Show” also gave Christie a couple new nicknames like "The Love Gov." and "Christie Kreme Donut." Watch the sketch below.
