Macklemore brings 'Thrift Shop' to Sesame Streeton November 22, 2013 @ 4:51 pm (Updated: 5:45 am - 11/25/13 )
Forget Saturday Night Live, Madison Square Garden or the Grammys. Now comes the surest sign Seattle rapper Macklemore is a bona fide superstar: a spot on Sesame Street.
An exclusive preview of his star-turn with Elmo and the other Muppets came out Friday in Billboard.
In the episode, the rapper is recast as "Mucklemore," helping Oscar and his fellow grouches recycle their garbage in a parody of his smash hit "Thrift Shop."
"I think it's every rapper's dream to make it on Sesame Street," Macklemore tells Elmo in the behind the scenes video.
Billboard reports Sesame Street shoots a full year before the episodes air, so we won't get to see Macklemore's appearance util late 2014.
