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.

8 Young Celebrities We Grew Up Watching Who Ended Up Behind Bars

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all

Nsync Claims They Were Better Than The Backstreet Boys And We Are Not Okay With It

When I was growing up, there was one band that was my one desire. That's right, Backstreet Boys were my everything. I knew every word, I knew a lot of the dance moves, and I could still tell you all of their full names. However, the 90s were a troubling time. Everywhere you looked, people were trying to make something controversial. They didn't want to just enjoy that glorious pop music, they wanted to pit the bands against each other. When *NSYNC entered the pop music game, everyone had to pick a side. Were you loyal to BSB, or were

The Spice Girls Are Apparently Making A Cartoon Superhero Movie And We're Ready For It

When the Spice Girls met up a several weeks ago, we all lost our collective minds. There was no patience involved, because we all knew that if they were all hanging out, something big must have been happening and we were 100% here for it. Well, we've had our hearts broken by Posh Spice herself when she told us that we weren't going to see a Spice Girls reunion tour, insisting that we had all gotten way too far ahead of ourselves. But she did seem to know that there would be something coming. “There’s something so strong in
