One man’s trash is another puppet’s treasure.

In a new video, Seattle rapper Macklemore moonlights as a malodorous version of himself, aptly named Mucklemore, on Sesame Street for a “gross and awesome” rendition of his hit song “Thrift Shop” with the show’s resident Grouches.

Though the Sesame Street version parodies Dumpster diving as a fetid way to thrift of sorts, the lyrics like “I’m going shopping / Looking for some rubbish” are decidedly cleaner for the show’s preschool audience.

Macklemore, alongside producer Ryan Lewis, won four Grammys in 2013, including one for “Thrift Shop” as best song.
