​The Lonely Island Join Jimmy Fallon and the Roots for Classroom Instrument Version of "I'm on a Boat"

Jimmy Fallon has perfected the art of the viral late-night video with The Tonight Show's recurring classroom instruments segment. The latest act to revamp their big hits with the addition of child-friendly music makers are the Lonely Island, who stopped by the show to dumb down and update "I'm on a Boat."
The track debuted as a Saturday Night Live digital short back in 2009, and was featured on the musical comedy group's debut album Incredibad. Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone are set to unleash their latest project as the Lonely Island when Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping hits theatres on June 3.
For now, though, wrap yourself in a nautical-themed pashmina afghan watch them breathe some new life into an old classic as they enlist Fallon, the Roots and an army of oddball instruments for a refreshing, adorable and still hilarious take on "I'm on a Boat."

Beyond that, you can also check out a couple of interview clips with Samberg, in which he talks about the upcoming movie.
