Sia, Natalie Portman, And Jimmy Fallon Sing "Iko Iko" Just For The Hell Of It

    true story!

    Jimmy Fallon will do just about anything to get you to watch his videos, and here's proof. In a new video, one whose origins we have no interest in knowing so as not to spoil its wonderful randomness, the Tonight Show host is joined by The Roots, Sia, and for that extra touch of virality, Natalie Portman (what?), for a rousing rendition of "Iko Iko," that classic New Orleans song popularized by girl group The Dixie Cups in the mid '60s. Everyone's wearing Sia wigs (where can we get one of those?), people are playing spoons, cups, buckets, everything. In fact, here's the full instrument list is:

    Sia - vocals
    Jimmy - spoons
    Natalie - blocks
    Questlove - kick drum, wood block
    Kamal - conga drums
    Frank Knuckles - plastic paint bucket
    Mark Kelley - cups
    Tuba Gooding Jr. - guiro
    James Poyser - deck of cards
    Captain Kirk - cue ball & 8 ball
    Black Thought - maracas
