The number and variety of Blurred Lines covers on the internet is overwhelming, but this one is certainly going to stand out. Robin Thicke himself sings with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. The instrumentation is perhaps the most interesting part, as The Roots members can be found playing a children's xylophone, a kazoo, a ukelele, and a shaker that looks like a banana among other things. Also, Black Thought delivers his own verse in the song, and it's not at all derogatory towards women, unlike the original by T.I. Maybe Robin Thicke was telling the truth about that whole "feminist movement" thing.

Though there's no denying that playing children's instruments while singing "I know you want it" and "good girl" can be seen as more than a little creepy.
