Thanks to Jimmy Fallon, song of the summer "Blurred Lines" has been taken back to the old school.
Actually, scratch that - it's more like a return to elementary.
With The Roots pitching in, Fallon and "Blurred Lines" crooner Robin Thicke dusted off the kiddie xylophone and other childhood favorites for an ever-so-slightly less risqué cover of the controversial tune. (Did you miss the memo on why some dislike "Blurred Lines"? Check out the video above.)
Thicke's falsetto is just as beguiling a cappella as it is on the record, although those blurred lines are still tripping him up.
"Late Night" host Fallon, meanwhile, is becoming a pro at playing classroom instruments. He's previously rounded them up for renditions of "Call Me Maybe" with Carly Rae Jepsen and "All I Want for Christmas Is You" with Mariah Carey, a group of adorable kids and an enviable set of holiday-themed sweaters.
