Hypnotizing platypus sings Biggie's 'Hypnotize'

If you can accept Tupac coming back as a hologram, you’ll love Biggie reincarnated as a platypus.

Taking footage of two forest-loving creatures from a Lunchables commercial, YouTuber Joe Capo smashed the egg-laying mammal and his jackalope pal together perfectly with the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize.”

The Notorious B.I.G., aka Christopher Wallace, the late rapper known for such classics as “Mo Money, Mo Problems” and “Big Poppa” and now the source of the Lunchables mascot’s vocals.

The first Lunchables commercial to feature the furry friends aired in 2014, featuring the platypus and jackalope getting offered the job of Lunchables mascot. In another, the pair can be seen walking through a forest singing a vastly different tune altogether: the Proclaimers’ “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles).” Since their premiere, they’ve gone on to star in videos in which they take part in other wholesome, mostly healthy activities such as aerobics, bull riding and karate.

“Hypnotize” was Biggie Smalls’ first single from his 1997 album “Life After Death.” Its music video was filmed a month before the rapper was shot to death March 9, 1997.

For a song packed with references to such iconic pieces of pop culture as “Star Wars,” Richie Rich and Underoos, we like to think Big Poppa would fully endorse a bridge existing between one of his classic hits and a snack box ’90s kids still adore.
