Bono and U2 made their anticipated appearance on The Tonight Show on Friday night and spoofed the lead singer’s bicycle accident Jimmy Fallon-style.
The frontman and Tonight Show host boarded bicycles in front of the NBC Studios in the video (Bono’s bike was black and Fallon’s was white and adorned with handle tassels, a bell and a flower-covered basket) for the singer’s “first” bike ride since his accident.
Bono was run over twice by a van in the video, but still managed to stand up and say, “I’m good, Jimmy. Just a couple of scratches” before his bandmates hit him a third time while searching for a parking space.
Fallon also discussed the lead singer’s real-life accident in the band’s sit-down interview. The band’s weeklong residency on The Tonight Show was canceled in November 2014 due to the singer’s injury.
“There is nothing cool about coming off a push bike. This is not a Harley Davidson. There’s nothing cool. There’s lycra involved,” Bono said.
The singer admitted that although he was wearing a leather jacket during the fall, his humerus bone was sticking out of the jacket after his accident.
