Robin Thicke, Jimmy Fallon, and the Roots Knew You Wanted ‘Blurred Lines’ on Kids’ Instruments
Black Thought raps a verse on video in tradition of "Call Me Maybe" clip
Robin Thicke’s grandpa-endorsed “Blurred Lines” still holds onto the top place on the Hot 100 chart — and Thicke’s Blurred Lines album heads for a likely No. 1 spot of its own — the playfully seductive song now has a version for the grandkids. Thicke, Jimmy Fallon, and the Roots teamed up to perform the song using children’s instruments, in the tradition of the Late Night crew’s meme-accelerating “Call Me Maybe” take (remember when everybody had their own “Call Me Maybe” version?). The Roots’ Black Thought lends a gruffly charming original verse. If this turns out to be the moment “Blurred Lines” jumped the shark, well, it was a hugely entertaining splashdown.
