WATCH: Bert & Ernie’s ‘Regulate’ Mash-Up Puts The Street In ‘Sesame Street’

Aptly-titled YouTube mash-up don isthishowyougoviral has found their muse: brightly-coloured foam puppets mouthing 90’s hip hop classics. Following his pairing of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s Tha Crossroads with Sesame Street’s hardest inhabitants, they’ve gone straight for the big one by throwing Bert & Ernie against Warren G & Nate Dogg’s Regulate.

Well, we do, so congratulations. Without further ado, pull out ya strap and lay them bustas down:
