Sweep the clouds away with Elmo, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots

It’s a classroom instruments version of Sesame Street and it is as amazing as it sounds.

LATE NIGHT WITH Jimmy Fallon has become something of an internet champion.

Fallon and his crew of writers have seemingly bottled the ability to make a video go viral, striking gold twice already this week.

Last night, as Irish nights got shorter and the weather turned, Fallon did it again. Not only bottling a viral, but bottling sunshine.

Teaming up with The Roots and the cast of Sesame Street, Fallon brought to life one of the most recognisable theme tunes in history.

The result is your happy place for the rest of…forever, basically. As Abby Cadabby, one of the newer cohorts of Muppets on the street, would say it’s not too shabby.
