Someone Told Bruno Mars How To Get To Sesame Street

Do not be fooled by the guitar stabs and Bruno Mars nodding about with some Muppets in formation. His song for Sesame Street (part of a huge, decades-old tradition) was neither “The Lazy Song” nor any cheap parody thereof, which may make us even more relieved than the parents.
No, it’s “Don’t Give Up” (not a Peter Gabriel cover), a chirpy and actually quite pleasant song about persevering in the face of being pummeled with balls, falling down repeatedly on your roller skates, or otherwise being turned into a slapstick performer. That’s one way of looking at it, at least. Popjustice has the other:
Bruno seems perfectly happy to watch his friends get hit by balls and fall over several times before helping them. What a monster.
So, Bruno Mars: teaching kids realism (you won’t always succeed on try one, or two, or eight), or sadistically watching Muppet pratfall? Is he a Muppet or a man? Decide now!
