After having performed adult songs (“Blurred Lines,” “Your Body,” “Call Me Maybe”) with Fisher Price toys, Jimmy Fallon and the Roots actually tackle a kid’s song with those same toys, and it is priceless. Go get the whole family, crowd around your laptop, and sing along.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I think I may have to finally start watching Fallon.

  • e jerry powell

    I'm scared to click the play button, actually.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I still have a Barkley on my desk. I'm a professional, after all.

  • PerpetualIntern

    Holy moly I needed that today.

  • emmalita

    I just showed it to my niece. She was unimpressed and now questions my taste in silly. Jaded 4 year olds = karmic punishment for the jaded teen years.

  • JenVegas

    I'm home with my 2.5 yo today, daycare is closed because of Jewish holiday, annnnnnd this video is awesome and made our morning.

  • Slash

    Saw this last night. I love the Sesame Street song. Delightful.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    That was great. The only thing that would have made it better is the yip-yip-yip aliens keeping tempo.

  • Miss Kate

    This just made my morning.

  • steven wiser

    me too!

  • bastich

    So they had played "Blurred Lines" with kids' instruments. Shouldn't they have to play the "Sesame Street" theme song with adult instruments? Whatever those are.....

    (Pipe organ? Keytar? Auto-Tune?)

  • Bagpipes and banjos!

  • PDamian

    That was f*cking adorable. And the guy who took Kevin Clash's place as Elmo is doing a fantastic job; the character hasn't changed at all.

  • SugarSmak

    Cookie Monster with a banana? Come on, now!

  • bastich

    Yeah, he came out as Veggie Monster on Colbert some time back.

    My heart is still broken.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    I love the Count counting them in and snuffaluffagus just hanging around in the back.

  • Ian Fay

    My inner child just squeed.

  • Ian Fay

    By which I mean I just squeed. Here at my desk. People are now looking at me funny.

  • Kylie

    I am so happy right now!

  • I will never not enjoy watching Black Thought in these videos. Dude always looks like he's about to burst with glee.

  • TK

    Ugh, great. Now I have to walk around all fucking morning with this goddamn grin on my face.

    You're such an asshole, Rowles.
