El Patito

Jarrod Fairclough – Sesame Street have today released a fantastic new music video starring Ernie, parodying the song ‘Despacito’ by Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee.  He sings to his old pal Rubber Duckie, reminiscent of the old classic song he sang back in 1969.  Not only is the clip extremely well made, it’s also a great look at Peter Linz’s Ernie, who sounds absolutely fantastic here.  Peter has really captured the spirit of the guy, and you can really see influences from both Steve Whitmire and Jim Henson in his portrayal.  I cannot wait to see more of what one of my favorite Muppet performers (and favorite people) does with my favorite character.
