Sting joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots for a unique live version of "Don't Stand So Close to Me" by The Police! Watch their split-screen performance with some fun at-home "instruments."

Sting came through as the latest performer on Jimmy Fallon's At-Home Edition of The Tonight Show. The vocalist of The Police sang his band's classic track "Don't Stand So Close to Me" along with Fallon and his show's house band, The Roots.

But for the song, some of the performers had to rely on makeshift instruments seeing as they're stuck at home in quarantine. Watch the song below!

Sting, Fallon, and The Roots combined for a total of 12 performers on the song. Some of The Roots band members are seen using scissors, a pillow, shoes, and even a Connect Four game to deliver the Police classic.

Yet, somehow, it works! Perhaps they took up the track given the social distancing-friendly message of its title. "Don't Stand So Close to Me" was a hit for The Police back in 1980. 

Sting performs with The Police at the 49th Grammy Awards in 2007.
