Robin Thicke Teams With Jimmy Fallon for G-Rated ‘Blurred Lines’
It's the song that's impossible to get away from: Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" has not only been played in its proper form to near exhaustion this summer, it's also sparked an impressive number of parodies starring everyone from Bill Clinton to Thicke's own dad, actor Alan Thicke.
So, that said, we'll forgive you if you sigh in exasperation at the thought of yet another alternate treatment of this megahit. However, we're pretty sure you won't want to miss this one. It's guaranteed to put a smile on even the Thicke-est case of depression.
Thicke teamed up with Late Night host Jimmy Fallon and his house band the Roots to create a family-friendly version of the sexy tune, performed completely on children's instruments. As you'll hear, the rollicking, infectious beat of the song actually lends itself surprisingly well to the bleeps and bleats of kindergarten toys!
Oh, and if you're wondering how this ensemble handles the tune's infamously un-kid-friendly line — you know what we're talking about; "you're the hottest (bleep) in the place" — we won't spoil the surprise. We'll just assure you it's comedy gold, so make sure to watch for it.
Fallon's kiddie-instrument fun seems to be fast becoming a regular thing for his program. The host has recruited several top artists to give their hit songs the same treatment, including Carly Rae Jepsen, Christina Aguilera, and Mariah Carey.
