Jimmy Fallon, Backstreet Boys, and The Roots singing “I Want It That Way” with classroom instruments

I don’t want to brag, but I once coerced a group of A.V. Club/Onion/Takeout staffers at a holiday party into a giant karaoke version of the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” (Takeout editor Kevin Pang has video). I love singalongs of that song, and have a soft spot for whenever Jimmy Fallon and The Roots pull in artists to perform their hits using classroom instruments. Which means I’ve watched this video way too many times already. [Gwen Ihnat]
