Music Mashup: Dora “Leans Like a Cholo”
When music meets pop culture on the internet, a beautiful, wonderful thing happens: the mashup. Some of these mashups are better than the original song and the original music video. It’s probably because of the time and work done to match up these children’s shows with these popular songs. Don’t believe me? Check them out for yourselves.
Bert & Ernie sing M.O.P’s Ante Up
This is perhaps one of the best mashups out there on the internet. Bert & Ernie singing Ante Up is perfect and seamless in almost every way possible. It’d probably have made a better music video to begin with.
Dora The Explorer Leans Like A Cholo
Dora and her pet monkey, Boots, know exactly how to lean like a Cholo, which makes this mashup hilarious. The dubbing isn’t perfect, but the intention makes it work.
Lazy Town sings Cookin’ By The Book w/ Lil’ Jon
Without a doubt, this is my favorite mashup of all time. There’s something so perfect about Lil’ Jon doing the chorus for a Lazy Town song about following the directions perfectly in order to bake a cake. It’s my go-to video when I need to laugh, and hard.
