Jimmy Fallon Schools Robin Thicke On Blurred Lines
Jimmy Fallon might not be the best interviewer in late night, but his sketches and musical bits are the best in the biz. I love the backstage, before the show music remixes that he has done over the last year with The Roots and people like Mariah Carey and Carly Rae Jepson. I didn’t think Fallon could top the one with Christina Aguilera, where everyone played office supplies as instruments. If you can rock out with coffee pot drums and a stapler, then you are my musical hero!
This time around Jimmy grabbed Robin Thicke and they recreated “Blurred Lines” using only instruments that you would find in an elementary school classroom.
I love the joy on everyone’s faces when they get to go back to their childhood. They even had a cowbell up in that joint! When I was a kid, the instrument that everyone wanted to play during music class was the xylophone, but I think I spotted my new favorite in this video. The guy in the corner is playing a “banana shaker”. Awesome! Even better than a maraca!
