THIS BEASTIE BOYS AND SESAME STREET ‘SABOTAGE’ MASH-UP IS THE GREATEST THING ON THE INTERNET RIGHT NOW
That is maybe better to say: totally EPIC.
Nothing could improve on the first music video for your Beastie Boys‘ “Sabotage.” That’s a given. It’s a classic in its own way, humorous, quirky, and absolutely in tune with the group’s funky sense of humor. This unexpected mix of Sesame Street muppets and Beasties, nevertheless, is damn amazing in its own right.
The author is Adam Schleichkorn, the mashup genius behind this station, who insists that the original is perfect, and throws in some extra respect for overdue Beasties member MCA at the conclusion of the movie. As an example, and only because it’s still undeniably awesome, here is the ’70s cop drama-spoofing original below. You know the immortal 1994 video Maxim once called among the 47 Best Things Ever.
The original ‘Sabotage’ music video is without a doubt, one of the greatest of all time, so I knew I couldn’t do a regular old lip sync video, I had to bring it! RIP MCA,” reads a note from Schleichkorn accompanying the video. Adam’s previous Muppet mashups include versions of “Regulate,” “So What’Cha Want” and “Tha Crossroads.”
Creating muppet (and animation character)-fueled mashups with improbable hit songs is sort of a thing for Schleichkorn, who’s managed to reliably go viral using a few in the past. Love some more of the work under.
This videos went viral in a fast time on the internet. If you are in a bad mood or need some mood buster, these videos are the right thing to start with.
There is something about watching the Muppets rap classic songs that gets us every time.
So lean back, take your popcorns and enjoy this great classic mashups and make your day even better.
