"Sesame Street" Takes On "Despacito" With Rubber Ducks
"Sesame Street" has created many classic and catchy songs of their own over the years, but this time they have borrowed a little inspiration from a tune that you may have heard before.
A take on Luis Fonsi's smash hit "Despacito" featuring Daddy Yankee, Ernie has reworked the lyrics to honor his beloved rubber ducky. "El Patito" ("Rubber Duck" in Spanish), like the original song it's based on, combines English and Spanish lyrics in an ode to the squeaking toy of Ernie's affection. Rosita, his turquoise guitar-playing friend, joins in to assist.
Meanwhile, a grumpy Bert pipes in to complain, "Oh no, not this song again!" But by the end of the two-minute-plus tune, even Burt is singing and bopping along, admitting, "Hey, that song's actually pretty catchy."
