Sesame Street has released a parody of the smash it ‘Despacito‘. The song won the ‘Summer Song of 2017’ honour at the Teen Choice Awards and has over 3 billion views on YouTube!
The parody falls in line with the show’s long tradition of teaching a little Spanish along with having some fun and celebrating Ernie’s friendship with his rubber duckie.
Hey, the update is cute but if you’re all about originals, revisit the 1970 Ernie classic, ‘Rubber Duckie’. It actually hit the Billboard charts for a brief stint!
The last time a mostly Spanish song hit the top 10 in Billboard’s Hot 100 was in 1996. Remember ‘Macarena’? That’s ok if you don’t want to, but every wedding DJ will. If it’s true that every dog has his day, then let it be that every song has its time and place.
