Video: Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' gets the Sesame Street treatment
It turns out Pharrell isn't the only one who's up all night for good fun
After months of earworming its way into the heads of millions and cementing radio domination, Daft Punk's neo-disco hit "Get Lucky" has been given a whole new look, with a Sesame Street "cover".
Created by Adam Schleichkorn, AKA Mylo the Cat, the video mashes the song with clips of Grover from the US kids' show. It turns out Pharrell isn't the only one who's up all night for good fun, with Bert, Ernie and others joining in.
Creator Schleichkorn, who has made over 500 Youtube videos since he started in 2007, cut his teeth on videos with cats and dogs lip-synched and (apparently) singing.
He said: "The goal behind my old ones was to promote virtually unknown indie bands, so I always wanted to test the waters with a hit mainstream song.
"As it turns out, I realised that making animals seem like they're singing is actually way harder than Sesame Street characters, so I made a couple of these Sesame Street-style ones."
The 31-year-old from Long Island, New York, added: "This latest one actually only took me around four hours, but it's only because of the fact that I spent literally hundreds of hours in the past working in this format."
The song, which spent four weeks at number one after its April release, also featured Chic legend, Nile Rogers.
It is currently number 12 in the UK singles chart.
