Morissette sported a blonde wig and faux fur vest, and Fallon had a long scuzzy beard and woolly cap for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. A sparse crowd slowly started to assemble. But by the reveal, the musicians were besieged by a shocked and selfie-taking crowd of delighted  onlookers.

The disguised subway buskers routine is becoming a regular feature on the “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” set up at the stop under 50 Rock, where the show is filmed.
