Don't worry, Sesame Street Made a Parody of "Despacito" Involving Ducks


  • Facebook, Sesame Street

Look, this hurricane is serious business and you definitely should be getting prepared for a crazy storm … but, please – do yourself a favor and take three minutes to de-stress and watch this Sesame Street parody of the the Luis Fonsi/Daddy Yankee/Bieber mega-hit “Despacito" because it will change your life.

“El Patito” translated as “the little duck” might be the best parody of a pop song since Weird Al’s “Eat it” (“Beat it” by MJ) or “Amish Paradise” (“Gangsta’s Paradise” by Coolio) – we're serious ... it's that amazing and most of the lyrics are in Spanish which we think is pretty dope (we see you out here Sesame Street!)

Plus, the geniuses behind the iconic show actually know how played out “Despacito” has gotten as Bert, right after Ernie clearly reveals this is definitely a “Despacito”-thing, says “Oh no, not this song again - aghhhh!”

If you’re looking for a good “lol” in the midst of preparing for one of the biggest storms SA’s seen in a minute, definitely take the time to watch:
