For years now, famous artists have ditched their studio equipment to produce hilarious remixes of their hits with Jimmy Fallon’s Classroom Instruments skit.
If you aren’t familiar with Classroom Instruments, consider this your quick tutorial. Mr. Fallon and The Roots leave real instruments behind and arm themselves with alphabet blocks, kazoos, and recorders. Once they add famous singers, these songs come to life in hysterical and awesome ways.
