Stop what you're doin', 'cause this is about to ruin the image and style that you're used to ... from classic Muppet Gonzo.

YouTube user IsThisHowYouGoViral has spliced together clips from "The Muppet Show" (specifically Gonzo and his collection of lovely hens) to the first minute-and-a-half of the 1989 Digital Underground hit "The Humpty Dance."

And it works! "I look funny/but yo, I'm making money, see!" Gonzo "sings" thanks to clever editing and the use of the voice from the original tune (Gregory "Shock G" Jacobs).

It's funnier, but only by a little bit, than the original video — which features Shock G wearing a fake nose and glasses, and a quick passing glimpse at a young Tupac Shakur. Check them both out (but warning: the original has some bleeped-out words, somewhat more adult behavior in it, and 100 percent fewer chickens)!

The video, which has garnered nearly 400,000 views since it was posted Monday, reminded us of some of the other hilarious Muppet mashups to have hit the Web. Here are some of our favorites.

"Just a Friend"

"Get Lucky"

"Blurred Lines"

"Wrecking Ball"
