You Knew It Would Happen: Feist, "1 2 3 4," and Sesame Street

Yeah, I know some people are tired of Feist by now, but I still adore "1 2 3 4," and so do the fine folks at Sesame Street. They've helped rework Feist's hit song into the 3-year-old counting song it will inevitably be remembered as.

You must watch this. Now. (Or wait 'til it premieres on the 39th season premiere August 11.)

Feist - "1 2 3 4 (Sesame Street Version)"

They even used the original for inspiration. (Though there were no penguins in the original and Feist isn't nearly as spangly here.) Hat tip: Videogum.

After the jump, the original video, plus my favorite reworked Sesame Street song ever.

R.E.M. - "Furry Happy Monsters"

The Kate Pierson muppet gets me every time.
