Late night TV host Jimmy Fallon surprised diners at a Vancouver restaurant on Thursday night with an impromptu barbershop quartet performance. This comes a day after he joined Sir Paul McCartney on stage at Rogers Arena.

Fallon, in town filming for Universal Studios’s new attraction Race Through New York, was dining at Le Crocodile with friends when things got musical.


According to diners in the restaurant at the time, Fallon and friends got up from their table and announced they wanted to perform R. Kelly’s “Ignition.”

To the surprise of those expecting a drunken singalong from four random guys, the quartet then gave a note perfect, completely a capella rendition of Kelly’s huge hit.

And of course, once diners realized who was singing, it was all caught on camera. Here’s the best video we could find documenting Fallon’s escapade:
