So seasoned toy instrument players (and incredible hip-hop band) The Roots obviously seized the opportunity with Jimmy Fallon, roping in Ariana Grande to cover her latest single, "No Tears Left To Cry", with the Nintendo Labo. All it took was matching uniforms, a bunch of Nintendo Labo instruments - made exclusively from Nintendo Switches and cardboard - and some imagination.
Along with the pop star, Ariana Grande and The Roots, Jimmy Fallon could not stop himself from performing with them.
Check out the full performance below.
Using just cardboard, Ariana's band had guitars, keyboards, drums and for some reason, a fishing rod at their disposal. For those who don't know what that is, Fallon explained it - in a way. I love that Nintendo does stuff like this. Honestly, now I kind of want Nintendo to make a Labo guitar.
"So this thing Labo is like cardboard - corrugated, I guess? We set Kamal and James each up with two Toy-Con Pianos so they could play both bass and the higher octaves". We asked if we could make other cardboard things like guitars and they [Nintendo] said, of course, we'll help you do it. Not only was each project a great building experience but my daughter spent more time on the Switch playing with his creations than she has since we got the portable console.
