Fallon and Schwartzman were nostalgic for field trips that took them to the zoo, the aquarium, and the cemetery, “where all the children took tracing paper and a crayon and rubbed it over a stranger’s tombstone. Remember that?” Fallon said.

“That was weird right? How was that a normal thing to ask 6-year-old boys to do?” Schwartzman asked.

Then Tux kicked it into high gear when they sang about picture day and posing in front of different backgrounds: “Us staring at us with different poses,” the duo sang.

Watch the clip below to see Tux get excited about pop quizzes and posing for pictures with The Picture Man (Questlove with a camera).
