Beloved children’s show “Sesame Street” has a knack for turning the hottest pop songs into kid-friendly ditties that are educational and just as catchy as their “adult” counterparts. Take for instance, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” became a song about sharing called “Share It Maybe”, and “Pen-Pineapple-Pen” turned into “Cookie-Butter-Choco-Cookie”. Now, it’s the Luis Fonsi (or the Justin Bieber remix, really) hit “Despacito” that’s parodied adorably, right where the air is sweet!
In the video, “Despacito” is Sesame-fied into a song about rubber duckies in a tune entitled, well, “El Patito”. Ernie and Rosita sing both in English and Spanish.
Ernie starts out the song with the following:
“Rubber Duckie, it is a connection/It doesn’t have to be a tubby session, ya/Take my day from zero to eleven, ya.”
Rosita also helps with the Spanish chorus:
“Oh, el patito, es mi favorito/Donde quiera que vaya hace su sonido/El patito es tu buen amigo/El patito.” (Oh, the duckie, it’s my favorite / Wherever I go it makes its sound / The duckie is your good friend / The duckie)
