Big Bird runs from the fuzz in this epic Beastie Boys mashup


The Beastie Boys‘ “Sabotage” is 23 years old but it still holds up in the court of mashup. Just add some Muppets.

A new clip reimagines the group’s Spike Jonze-directed crime-action spoof with footage from Sesame Street, as Big Bird dodges nets, parades, and the Count. There are some Baby Driver-level car chases here.

Creator isthishowyougoviral, aka editor Adam Schleichkorn, knows his Muppets and Beasties: He did “So What’cha Want” in 2014.

Oh my God, it’s a mirage.
