Have you had trouble remembering the lyrics to The Lumineers' ubiquitous hit "Ho Hey"? Thanks to Jimmy Fallon, now you can simply cluck along.

The "Late Night" host lampooned the song on last night's program, forming The Chickeneers with musical guest Blake Shelton, "Parks and Recreation" star Nick Offerman (that's Ron Swanson to you), and show editor Chris Tartaro. The quartet, clad in bird costumes, bawked and clucked the catchy tune.

Fallon has a long history of silly reinterpretations of songs and celebrity collaborations on his show. Does this take on The Lumineers' hit (which, by the way, the Grammy nominees played in our office last year) join his impression of Neil Young singing the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" theme or his "history of rap" tag-team with Justin Timberlake as all-time greats? Watch the video and decide for yourself.
