N.E.R.D. performed in New York City's Times Square on Thursday, rocking out with a live band to a crowd of hipsters and confused tourists.

Performing old and new hits from their diverse catalog, Pharrell Williams and co. -- fellow Neptunes member Chad Hugo was suspiciously absent -- appeared in the heart of The Big Apple to promote Honda's new CR-Z Hybrid Coupe. Supported by spirited backup dancers, the duo of Pharrell and Shay Haley kicked things off with their summer hit 'Hot n Fun,' before launching into their first single, 'Lapdance.' Pharrell urged the crowd to "Say hello to the sun," which was out in full force for the event.
