The Lonely Island Performed ‘I’m On a Boat’ With Toy Instruments on ‘Fallon’

The Lonely Island

One of the best musical comedy acts to ever exist, the Lonely Island have been handsomely rewarded for their mastery of genre-plundering viral shorts with actual hits: “Dick in a Box,” “Jack Sparrow,” “Jizz in My Pants.” Then there’s the effusive “I’m on a Boat,” a Grammy-nominated whole-other-matter entirely.

The trio of Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, and Andy Samberg stopped by the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night to promote their upcoming film, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (out June 3) and perform their greatest hit with the Roots and Fallon himself on classroom instruments. With no T-Pain in tow, collect your winnings if you ever put money on Black Thought exclaiming, “I f**ked a mermaid.” Watch the clip below.
