Robin Thicke Recreates “Blurred Lines” With The Roots Using Children’s Instruments On “Jimmy Fallon”

August 2, 2013  |  

As if you you couldn’t love “Blurred Lines” enough already, on last night’s episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Robin Thicke teamed up with Fallon and The Roots to have a jam session and recreate the song using children’s instruments. We’re talking colorful xylophones, maracas, kazoos, ukeleles, plastic flutes, cowbells, a guiro, and more. Black Thought filled in for TI on the rap part, and a very enthusiastic Fallon filled in for Pharrell to do back-up vocals. Safe to say, they killed it, and it just so happened to be adorable.

This isn’t the first time Jimmy Fallon has performed popular songs with children’s instruments and other interesting tools. He did so with Carly Rae Jepsen for “Call Me Maybe,” Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas” and “Your Body” with Christina Aguilera. Thicke appeared on the show to promote his new album, Blurred Lines, which came out on July 30 and is expected to go number one (*fingers crossed*) and has been all over the talk show circuit to remind folks, including you, that they need to support a fella. Check out the video below and let us know if you love their performance as much as we do!

    I had to watch this video couple times. I think Jimmy Fallon is a great all round entertainer.
    I am not a regular viewer, but love his skits, his games, and now something like this video with Robin Thicke. How great can it be to have grown men playing kids instruments and having so much fun in a dressing room!!!! Jimmy needs a Emmies on his mantle!

    I love it when Fallon & The Roots do this with artists. They did something like this with Mariah Carey and “All I Want For Christmas” last year and it was awesome. This one is great too!
