With Santa Claus preparing another trek around the globe to leave presents under the tree and coal in people’s stockings, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots decided to get in the spirit of the season with a little impromptu jam session of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” As has been the case in the past, they’ve passed on the professional instruments in favor of a variety of children’s toys and invited along One Direction to join in on the fun. The result is a bout of musicality that showcases The Roots precision as a band and also achieves putting a smile on the face of even the biggest Grinch.
