Sesame Street meets Bone Thugs-N-Harmony at the ‘Crossroads’

Sesame Street/YouTube


Remember the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony song “Tha Crossroads”? About losing a buddy too soon and hoping you’ll meet him again someday at the pearly gates?

What if we told you Elmo, Grover, and Cookie Monster know the feeling?

Someone has painstakingly edited together a video of the Sesame Street characters so that it looks like they’re lip-syncing the 1996 hit, and for some reason it works extremely well. It might be that they’re cute. It might be that their faces are perfectly expressionless.

Whatever the reason, these guys really look like they’re singing the words, and it’s fun to see.

It’s not quite Bert and Ernie doing “Ante Up,” but it’s a perfect snow day distraction tbh.
