After decades on air, the cast of Sesame Street can be considered the OGs of children’s television. However, their street cred usually extends just to that kid-friendly block which makes it all the more fun when you have these squeaky clean characters doing some very weird or grown up things. For instance, one YouTuber decided it would be a good result to create a mashup of the gang rapping Bone Thugs-n-Harmony’s ‘90s classic “Tha Crossroads.”
“This was, by far, the toughest song choice out of all the mashups I’ve ever created, but it’s one of the best rap songs ever, so it had to be done,” video creator Adam Schleichkorn wrote. The two and a half minute clip features Grover as Bizzy Bone, Elmo as Layzie Bone, Cookie Monster as Krayzie Bone and Telly as Wish Bone. It’s already received more than 200,000 views.
Schleichkorn previously edited mashups of the Muppets singing the Beastie Boys’ “So What’cha Want” and Digital Underground’s “The Humpty Dance,” Time reports. No word on what he’ll do next but it can't be as bad as this True Detective dub.
