Black Simon and Garfunkel cover 'Bad Blood' on 'The Tonight Show'

Posted on


Black Simon and Garfunkel appeared on last night’s Tonight Show for their latest folkie cover of a pop hit. This time the parody duo—aka The Roots’ Questlove and “Captain” Kirk Douglas—brought their black turtleneck comedy to Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood,” complete with choreographed head turns and a coda of the “lai-la-lai” from the real Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Boxer.” All in an evening’s work for the two members of the Roots, who have performed hits like “Royals” and “Roar” since Fallon’s Late Night days.

Check out the clip below.
