Jenny Slate -- the actress/comedian who starred in this year's brilliant Obvious Child and appeared on Parks and Recreation and Married -- sang one of Fleetwood Mac's iconic hits last night on Conan: "Landslide" from 1975. The twist? She did it in the voice of Marcel the Shell, a hilarious YouTube character she invented. Check out Marcel's take on the heartbroken track below:

"Landslide" was written by Stevie Nicks and included on 1975's Fleetwood Mac album-- the first Fleetwood Mac full-length to feature contributions from Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham. Like all Nicks songs, it leans heavily on the singer's elegantly bruised voice. Needless to say, the Marcel the Shell version is much more high-pitched.

"Landslide" has been covered before, notably by the Smashing Pumpkins, the Dixie Chicks and Glee. But it's never sounded this squeaky.
