Somebody turned Barney, Dallas' favorite purple dinosaur, into the Notorious B.I.G. in hilarious mash-up video

If you're a '90s kid, chances are you busted the tape on a Barney & Friends VHS or ten. And, while he might have been a bit "past your bedtime" in 1994, you've likely caught up to the brilliance of another of that decade's massive figures: The Notorious B.I.G.

Well, today is your lucky day. In a stroke of internet brilliance, someone has dubbed Biggie's platinum-selling, number 1 hit "Big Poppa" over Barney clips for your viewing pleasure.

It's not the first video of its kind from YouTuber Mylo the Cat; among other creations are Doug Funnie rapping Ice Cube's "Today was a Good Day" and Bert and Ernie "regulating" just like Warren G. and Nate Dogg. But, the Barney video is everything for those who grew up watching the North Texas -created and -filmed T-Rex.

Forget the yachts Biggie favored; Barney rolls out in a hot air balloon, his tiny human minions throwin' their "hands in the aya" cause theys true playas. Toward the end, Barney's little yellow friend, B.J., throws down a rather convincing Puff Daddy.

Heads up, this obviously contains NSFW language.
