Watch a Muppets Parody of Naughty By Nature’s ‘Hip Hop Hooray’
By Ezra Marcus
There’s nothing like a video compilation of classic Muppet antics to reveal the goofiness inherent in hip-hop’s soul. See for yourself in this video by Youtube user Mylo The Cat, which sets Kermit, Beaker and the rest up against Naughty By Nature’s legendary old-school hit “Hip-Hop Hooray.”
Released the 1993, the song spent a week on the top of the charts and received a music video from Spike Lee himself.
There’s something deeply fitting about a gang of fuzzy creatures jamming along to the high-caliber rhymes and iconic “hey…ho…hey…ho!” chorus. Kermit plays the lead role, but several other characters make guest appearances: Fozzie The Bear, in particular, seems to be feeling the groove.
