VIDEO: 'The Roots' sample the Action News theme

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- This year's Philly 4th of July Jam was full of surprising moments.

Whether it was CeeLo Green's performance or Mayor Michael Nutter showing off his rapping skills, the audience was buzzing.

It was no different, when Philadelphia's own The Roots opened the show with their own rendition of the Action News theme 'Move Closer to Your World.'

As Action News sports reporter Jamie Apody wrote on her Facebook page: "It was AWESOME! Most Philly thing EVER!"
