The Internet Has Given Us The 'Sesame Street' And Beastie Boys Mashup We Never Knew We Needed

It's impossible to overstate just how iconic a song "Sabotage" by Beastie Boys is. The main single from their fourth album, "Ill Communication," routinely ends up featured on lists of "The Greatest Songs Of All Time" by music review outlets. It remained a staple of the band's live set, and was often their closing song.

While it was a moderate success when it came out (the album hit No. 1 on the Billboard Chart), it's only become more popular in the years since its release. This is especially thanks to it being featured in movies like the reboot franchise of Star Trek (where it's essentially become Captain James T. Kirk's theme song) and shows like Futurama and Family Guy.

Even more iconic was the song's music video. Directed by Spike Jonze (who would later go on to become Hollywood royalty by directing films such as Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and Her), the video stars the Boys as cast members of a fictional 1970s cop drama called "Sabotage," which basically entails them running around a blowing a bunch of stuff up.

The video holds up great to this day, and one has to wonder how you could possibly make it better. Well, Youtuber Adam Schleichkorn (AKA "isthishowyougoviral") did the impossible and found a way.

His solution? Use Sesame Street.
