He already did one late-night parody of the summer's biggest hit, and now he's at it again.

Not long after Robin Thicke took to Jimmy Kimmel's show to spoof the controversial video for his No. 1 smash "Blurred Lines," the R&B singer hooked up with Jimmy Fallon for yet another rendition of the song, currently in its eighth week atop the Hot 100.

The charm of this version, evidently taped in a dressing room at "Late Night"? It has Fallon's house band, the Roots, backing Thicke on the kind of instruments you used to play in elementary-school music class.

"Late Night" viewers will recognize the gag from previous appearances by Carly Rae Jepsen (who sang her "Call Me Maybe") and Mariah Carey (who did "All I Want for Christmas Is You"). But that hardly makes it less appealing.
