Sting joins The Roots for a fitting anthem of self-isolation and social-distancing amid coronavirus outbreak on the home edition of Jimmy Fallon's late-night show.

AceShowbiz - Sting was so thrilled to hear The Roots would be covering a hit The Police song using household objects he wanted to join them.

The band asked the rock star if they could work on a quirky rendition of "Don't Stand So Close to Me", calling the song a fitting anthem for quarantine, self-isolation and social-distancing during the coronavirus pandemic, for Jimmy Fallon's "The Tonight Show".

Sting not only agreed to let Questlove and his bandmates perform the track with Fallon on "The Tonight Show" 's "At Home" edition on Thursday night, April 9, 2020, he joined them, playing a jar of pasta before switching to guitar.

Questlove played with scissors and forks, Black Thought a hair pick, and Kamal Gray with a game of "Connect 4".

The show also featured a Zoom meeting interview with Beastie Boys' Ad-Rock and Mike D and a virtual chat with Anna Kendrick.
