WATCH: ‘Black Simon and Garfunkel’ meets the real Art Garfunkel and it’s awesome
Jimmy Fallon and The Roots’ “Black Simon and Garfunkel” act reached a peak on Wednesday’s Tonight Show when the titular duo was joined by the actual Art Garfunkel for an appearance tinged with nostalgia.
As The Week reported, Garfunkel joined the duo — actually the group’s drummer, Questlove, and guitarist Captain Kirk Douglas — for a rendition of The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face,” which segued into a portion of the original Simon and Garfunkel’s classic “The Boxer.”
Garfunkel’s appearance with the characters was the first since Fallon and the group debuted them in 2011.
