As guests on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, U2 popped up at the 42nd Street subway station disguised as buskers. Their hawker, Jimmy Fallon, also in disguise, put on his best New York accent to try to persuade busy commuters to drop some dough and support local artists. "They play birthdays, they play Bar Mitzvahs, they'll play your party," Fallon yelled.
Bono butchered "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" convincingly enough that the wig-laden crew garnered little more than a few passing glances as people rushed on toward their trains. Finally Bono called it quits, Jimmy ripped off his wig and dropped the accent, and an excited crowd quickly gathered. With smiles all around, the famous foursome launched into "Desire."
