Add Robin Thicke to the list of "Late Night" guests that have performed smash hit singles to the tune of classroom instruments.

Thicke, sans glasses, packed into the "Late Night" music room along with the show's band, The Roots, and Fallon, to perform his smash summer hit, "Blurred Lines." What nostalgic instrument did Thicke choose? The spoons. Classic.

The R&B crooner is the slotted as the musical guest on Jimmy Fallon's show tonight, but Fallon released the sure-to-go viral vid (it already has 15,000+ views) ahead of the scheduled performance.

Other classroom instrument viral video alum include guests Mariah Carey ("All I Want For Christmas Is You") and Carly Rae Jepsen ("Call Me Maybe"). In November, Christina Aguilera changed it up and performed "Your Body" with the "Late Night" crew, this time using office supplies. She played the stapler.
