Watch Lonely Island, Roots Play ‘I’m On a Boat’ With Kids’ Instruments

Andy Samberg, Jimmy Fallon also play “Catchphrase” with Gigi Hadid and Bryce Harper

Andy Samberg and the Lonely Island dropped by The Tonight Show Monday to perform the troupe’s classic “I’m On a Boat” with children’s instruments alongside host Jimmy Fallon and the Roots. With everyone in sailor costumes – except Lonely Islander Jorma Taccone, who wore a dunce cap while reading the book The Joy of Land – the crew turn the opulent Incredibad anthem into a ragtag sing-along.

Samberg was promoting the Lonely Island’s upcoming comedy Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, and in addition to the “I’m On a Boat” and the interview portion of the visit, the former SNL star joined Fallon and fellow guests Gigi Hadid and Washington Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper for a round of Catchphrase.

Samberg and Hadid squared off against Fallon and Harper. However, when the unanimous 2015 National League MVP is tasked with the clue “Eager Beaver,” he’s thrown a pitch that he just can’t hit. However, thanks to Harper’s own ignorance of the rules, he and Fallon still somehow win.

Later in the show, Samberg explains that promoting a film can be a monotonous affair. During The Tonight Show interview portion, Samberg said he makes press more interesting by sneaking Fallon’s name into every press junket to sit down for.
