Sesame Street wants you to know that it’s OK to call yourself an artist, because art describes a lot of things.

To help get that message across, the Count and his sparkly assistant Abby Cadabby brought in an unconventional artist—Terry Crews.

Brooklyn 99 fans are currently having a renewed love affair with the former NFL player turned comedian and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire host, but if you haven’t seen Crews in action lately, this Sesame Street video will make up for lost time.

Crews looks so excited about being turned into a beret-wearing painter that it makes you want to go out and buy an easel. But that’s just the start of the fun. Wait until he busts out the disco moves.

Can we see that dance one more time?

Bless you, Sesame Street. Bless you.

Correction: Terry Crews is a former NFL player.
