Snooping around for a video ping to your pals? Look no further than this Snoop Dogg and the Muppets mashup, which is way more joyful than a certain ABC reboot. Need proof? Poof!:
The video, made by mashup master, Adam Schleichkorn, aka Mylo the Cat, is a plush parody of Snoop Dogg’s “Who Am I? (What’s My Name?).” The piano-playing Muppet, Rowlf, takes on the role of Snoop Dogg, while Fozzie the Bear fills in for Dr. Dre.
Schleichkorn has had a lot of success making other hip-hop and Muppets rainbow connections in the past, including versions of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s “Tha Crossroads,” Beastie Boys’ “So What’cha Want” and Digital Underground’s “The Humpty Dance” all being performed by Jim Henson’s creations.
Most recently, on March 28, he premiered a mashup of Bert and Ernie performing a rendition of Warren G and Nate Dogg’s 1994 hip-hop hit, “Regulate.” The video went viral receiving over 1 million views on YouTube.
But Schleichkorn noticed hip-hop icon, Snoop Dogg/Snoop Lion/Snoop D-O-double-G/ Snoopzilla, had also given him props for his Bert and Ernie video, he decided to honor the rapper with his latest rendition.
“I’ve been planning on doing a Snoop song for over a year,” Schleichkorn wrote on his YouTube page. “So when I saw that the Doggfather himself posted my Regulate mashup on Facebook, I freaked out for an hour, and then got to work.”
