Happy birthday Sesame Street! You look great for 41. But really, it’s time to start acting your age. May we suggest a more adult-friendly theme song? Look, monosyllabic shouter/rapper Lil Jon has already composed a profanity-laced take on the opening theme, which he performed for New York’s Hot 97 morning show for some goddamned reason. Now kids can learn about swears AND that “reading’s the shit.”
Of course, this is all just an excuse for me to dust off an all-time favorite clip that also mines the musical potential of kids’ programming and Lil’ Jon.
Your move, Yo Gabba Gabba.
