When Robin Thicke was recording “Blurred Lines” last year, it’s doubtful he ever envisioned playing the song with instruments you’d likely see in an elementary school classroom.

But last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that’s exactly what happened.

Before the show, Fallon, Thicke, and Fallon’s house band the Roots grabbed a handful of unconventional instruments to perform his No. 1 hit “Blurred Lines.” While Fallon, Thicke and each member of the Roots alternated on vocals, what grabbed the most attention were the instruments.

Fallon manned the Casio keyboard and wood block, while Thicke showcased his familiar falsetto with the help of some spoons. The instrumentation also included a wooden clacker, kazoo, xylophone, melodica, ukulele, banana shaker, maraca and, of course, a cowbell.

Clearly a PG-rated rendition of the song, Fallon covered Thicke’s mouth as he was about to sing, “You’re the hottest b**** in this place.”
