U2 disguised themselves as buskers on Monday and performed in a New York subway for a sketch for Jimmy Fallon this week.

Fallon took the crew and U2 to the 42nd Street subway below Grand Central. As Bono’s vocals for the U2 classic ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’ started, disinterested commuters walked past, most oblivious to the fact that one of their biggest acts on the planet was performing one of their biggest songs before their eyes and ears.

It wasn’t until Jimmy Fallon revealed himself and the band took of their disguise that the audience understood what was happening.

U2 then launched into ‘Desire’. Watch what happened here:
