Give me that toot-toot: a reddit community has come up with the idea for mash-ups of rap songs with the theme song for popular children’s show, Thomas the Tank Engine. The result: Thomas the Dank Engine, a dedicated thread featuring some pretty clever creations by reddit users.
Each attempt is of varying quality and effort, but there are a few standouts though: All “Train Everything [Trinidad James]” is currently atop the list, and the Thomas theme song does sit particularly well with Jay Z’s original phrasing in “99 problems and a train ain’t one”.
If you think about it, there could be an idea here for a product to take any kid on a smooth transition from childhood through to teenage interests; a train-ing program of sorts.
Check out one of the examples above, or find the full thread at reddit.
