Band Walk Off The Earth Covers Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You” & It’s Spectacular.

There’s a kitschy genius behind Jimmy Fallon’s “Classroom Instruments”segment, where he and guests cover songs using instruments you’d find in a kindergarten class. But Walk Off The Earth takes that unexpected musical production concept and brings it up several dozen notches.

We watched with amazement when they covered Adele’s “Hello,”using a surfboard, tap shoes, and sound hoses. And they appear to have seized whatever items they had lying around the house for their cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You.”What’s next, hand saws, and garden rakes?

Probably somewhere down the line. But before that, the band opted for something more akin to what Frankenstein would have played.

In their recent cover of Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You,”the band sings and simultaneously plays the GuitHarpUlele, a one-of-a-kind instrument that features everything a musician could ask for. It has a guitar, harp, ukulele, and various other add-ons that meld together to create an epic performance.

The band’s cover is not only just as addictive as the original song, it’s also incredible to watch as they navigate the small space each member is alotted on the instrument.

We’ll never know how long it took for them to figure out the logistics or how they managed to keep their fingers from getting all tangled up… But then again, we’re talking about a bunch of musicians who can make even a tub of pebbles and a cup of forks sound amazing.

That’s why it’s no surprise the video has gone viral since it was posted last week. The band’s fans who were no doubt counting down the days until its release, but among the biggest compliments was this one, from none other than the original performers Maroon 5!
