Do you remember when the song "I'm On a Boat" came out in 2009? It was then the new single from the Lonely Island's debut album, and if you're anything like us, it was stuck in your head for a solid year. It was also the Facebook caption every single person used on every photo of a vacation spent on the water — you could bank on that. It was so epic that lo these seven years later, that classic is still as relevant as ever.
Evidence? The Lonely Island just joined up with Jimmy Fallon and the Roots in the Tonight Show music room to perform the track with classroom instruments, part of a series that always seems to resonate and go viral.
It's so good. Behold it here in all its glory:
In the track — performed in the room's signature cozy quarters — Andy Samberg is on vocals... plus a rubber duckie shaker and flip-flops. Fallon takes wood block, bass drum, Casio keyboard, and kazoo. Questlove hits the hand clappers, and the rest of the crew plays the likes of bongos, triangle, banana shaker, and inflatable dolphin.
If all of this fun is making you nostalgic for the original — filmed on a baller yacht — enjoy:
