Our long national nightmare is over. We finally have a mashup of the Beastie Boys’ “So What’cha Want” and footage from Sesame Street. It was tense there for awhile, but Adam Schleichkorn of Mylo the Cat and Is This How You Go Viral has made it happen at long last. He’s the same guy behind the “Get Lucky” Sesame Street mashup. Between his work and the guy lip dubbing Cookie Monster with Tom Waits’ “God’s Away On Business” and “Hell Broke Luce”, we’ve got to wonder if there are any songs which couldn’t benefit from a Muppet lip synch. (Answer: there’s only one music video that’s already perfect.)
This remix is far more upbeat than the original version, in which The Swedish Chef, Animal, and Beaker sing the tearjerker “Danny Boy” for Saint Patrick’s Day. On the other hand, this mashup reminds us that MCA’s birthday would have been one week ago today, and that’s even sadder than listening to “Danny Boy”. All sad things can be rated on a scale of how many minutes of “Danny Boy” it’s like listening to. That’s just science.
