If you thought the original Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” music video couldn’t be any more cinematic, try adding Sesame Street characters from the 1985 film Follow that Bird. A fan has combined the iconic ’90s vid with your favorite Muppets, and the result—featuring Big Bird and Cookie Monster—might have topped the Spike Jonze-directed original.
Adam Schleichkorn (a.k.a. Mylo the Cat) posted the mash-up on his YouTube channel isthishowyougoviral. The YouTuber wrote in the description that the original video was “one of the greatest of all time,” inspiring him to make a more creative tribute than “a regular old lip sync video.” Other mash-ups on his channel include Bone Thugs-n-Harmony’s “The Crossroads” and the Warren G and Nate Dogg classic “Regulate,” both starring Sesame Street characters.
The original video shows the Beastie Boys jumping over cars, climbing up buildings, and kicking down doors in a parody of ’70s crime dramas.
The mash-up, which shows Big Bird being chased by a social worker, also pays tribute to late Beastie Boy member Adam “MCA” Yauch. Watch it above.
