Jimmy Fallon and The Roots Perform "Call Me Maybe" with Carly Rae Jepsen



There have been endless covers of Carly Rae Jepsen's hit song "Call Me Maybe," but this has to be the best one because it involves actual talent.

During Jepsen's appearance on "Late Night," Jimmy Fallon and The Roots joined Jepsen backstage to perform a fun version of the song with classroom instruments such as a wood block, xylophone, kazoo, and an instrument that looks alarmingly like a wood penis.

The Roots remind us that they have more talent on basic classroom instruments than most people will ever have on real instruments.

Essentially, The Roots have just served the whole internet by making the hundreds of "Call Me Maybe" cover version with limited choreography and lip-syncing seem silly in comparison.

Hopefully this will make more people realize:

Hey, I just met you,
and this is crazy,
but enough with,
the cover videos maybe?
