Regulators, mount up!
You can’t be any geek off the street, which must be why Ernie and Bert were tapped for this awesome hip-hop homage to the late Nate Dogg. The 1994 G-funk classic opens with Warren G (Bert) and Nate (Ernie) in what we can only assume is Alphabet City. They’re in street gear, nodding their heads in disgust at gentrification at work. Spoiler alert: we’re treated to glimpses of their lush life, including but not limited to paperclip bling, melting ice cream cones, and furry ladies. It’s a hell of a juxtaposition.
Once again, this splice job is at the paw of Mylo the Cat, who also gave the world the Muppet version of the Beastie Boys’ track “So What’cha Want?” and a rendition of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Shimmy Shimmy Ya.
Be sure to catch the 1:34 mark when Ernie’s “going to make some bodies turn cold” while looking at his beloved Rubber Duckie.
