If you haven’t been in a coma for the last month, you have heard Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” and now you can hear “Blurred Lines via Sesame Street.”
A new viral video by YouTube user isthishowyougoviral takes Thicke’s No. 1 song and applies it to various scenes from Sesame Street (involving Grover) and The Muppets, specifically from the viewpoint of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.
The video was created by Mylo the Cat (http://www.facebook.com/mylothecat), and the caption below the video reads:
*Yes, I am fully aware that sequels never do as well, and that this will not go viral. With that said, a lot of people enjoyed my Daft Punk/Sesame Street one, so this is for them.”
Last week, I reported on a Cosby Show remake of the video which showcased a perfectly sync’d opening credit sequence and the hashtag #Cosby. Check out the Cosby Mashup here.
We’ve actually tried syncing up a bunch of other sequences with “Blurred Lines,” and, as it turns out, the song works for a lot of content. Perhaps one of the reasons the song is so popular is because it has a familiar tempo that people enjoy. Then again, it could be popular because of the unrated version of the song.
WARNING FOR PARENTS: The Sesame Street version of Blurred Lines still features the songs lyrics which are definitely adult themed.
What do you think about Blurred Lines played to Sesame Street and The Muppets?
