Here's Doug Funnie rapping Fetty Wap's 'Trap Queen'
Few things can compare to the greatness of ’90s Nickelodeon. It was the network’s golden era, and the decade gave birth to some of our favorite shows of all time: All That, Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Clarissa Explains It All . . . The list feels endless. We could truly go on forever about our love for ’90s Nickelodeon. These shows hold such a special place in our hearts — and excitingly, this week’s remix video on Vulture features one of our favorite Nickelodeon gems: Doug.
For those in need of a refresher, Doug follows the story of a boy (Doug Funnie) and his friends as they navigate early adolescence. In its heyday, it covered topics ranging from besties to bullying, and every episode left us with a moral and a lot of feelings. Fresh off of the incredible Miss Piggy/”BBHMM” mash-up, this week Vulture Remix combined this wonderful show with Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” — and we couldn’t love it more.
In the video, Doug Funnie serenades his long-time crush Patti Mayonnaise with some NSFN (Not Safe For Nickelodeon) lyricism — and it is glorious. I have a feeling “in the kitchen cooking pies with my baby” might have a different meaning for Doug than it does in the original song; but nonetheless, the video is lip-syncing at its finest.
Adam Schleichkorn (aka Mylo the Cat) put the video together, and I’m just not sure I’ll ever look at Doug the same way again. The song definitely feels a lot more literal with Doug at the reigns, but it totally works. (If you haven’t already seen Blake Griffin explain the original song’s lyrics, please do so here.) As Vulture points out, “‘Trap Queen’ is, at its core, a song about adoration for a woman — one whom he thinks is perfect in every way.” If that doesn’t describe Doug’s feelings for Patti, we don’t know what does.
Check it out for yourself below. And Vulture, we bow down to you.
