Jimmy Fallon gave fans another great moment on Wednesday during the Late Show With Jimmy Fallon. Joined by Sesame Street characters and The Roots, the talk show hot belted out the Sesame Street theme song with his guests for a very amusing segment. Using school instruments, the group sang the song with such love that it was impossible not to share it on Thursday morning with the family.
“ICYMI (or just secretly want to watch on repeat), here's Jimmy, some Muppets & @theRoots performing #SesameStreet,” tweeted the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show from the official account. Including a link to the song, there was no doubt that the moment was really special to watch.
The special presentation included most of the friend who live on Sesame Street. Cookie Monster, Big Bird and even Elmo were singing along with the late night host. Infusing a little contemporary culture, there was even a little bit of rapping in the middle of the performance too!
Jimmy Fallon is known for his epic viral videos and this Sesame Street theme song video is no exception. On YouTube less than 12 hours, the song has been seen over 40,000 times and when people hear about the moment, there isn't any doubt the view count will continue to rise.
Take a look at the video clip of Jimmy Fallon, the Roots and the characters from Sesame Street sing the theme song of the popular kids show. Sesame Street kicks off the 44th season of programming his year.
