The only thing that could make Adele’s “Hello,” even more charming is if someone added classroom instruments to it.

Luckily Jimmy Fallon is happy to fulfill that role, as he and the Roots serve as backup to Adele in a classroom instrument performance of the smash hit. The portable xylophone, kazoos, clapping hands, and the banana all add to the ambiance, but her vocals bring it all home. This won’t get old anytime soon.

We already have thoughts about why she has a flip phone in the “Hello” video. But now we’re left wondering: Why does she has a plastic flip phone?
