Thicke, Fallon, and the Roots team up to perform the chart-topping single using children's instruments, which include a banana shaker, an ukulele and a xylophone.
Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" can finally have a version which is more kid-friendly. Thicke teamed up with Jimmy Fallon and his "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" band, The Roots, to cover the sexy summer anthem with all of them playing classroom instruments.
A banana shaker, an ukulele and a rainbow-colored xylophone were among the instruments used by the performers who packed the recording studio. Showing off his vocal skill, Thicke even used his own instrument as a microphone during the fun performance.
"If you see and want it you can have it boo/ I come home to my own Miss America/ The best girlfriend I ever had was you/ You got brains, looks and attitude, combined," The Roots singer changed the lyrics, which were rapped by T.I. in the original version.
Thicke's "Blurred Lines" is not the first hit to get a classroom-instrument version. Last year, Fallon and his band gave Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" and Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" the similar treatment.
