NEW YORK, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Sesame Street has released on YouTube an adorable video featuring Tony Award-winning actor Daveed Diggs covering the show's musical masterpiece "Rubber Duckie."

"It's a Rubber Duckie sing-along! Follow the words on the screen and join Daveed Diggs in singing this classic Sesame Street tune!" reads a message accompanying the clip.

Best known for his portrayal of Lafayette in the Broadway blockbuster Hamilton, Diggs is seen in Tuesday's video wearing a suit and oversized, orange bow-tie as he sings lyrics like: "Rubber Duckie, you're the one. You make bath time lots of fun," while animated rubber duckie toys and bubbles appear on the screen.

Diggs also put a new spin on the decades-old song by adding a mild rap that starts: "I've got my rubber duckie. I'm in the tub with bubblies. He isn't very fuzzy. I know my duckie loves me. Call up my homie, Ernie. The orange one, you heard me."

The Muppet Ernie, who originally sang the song, has a cameo at the end of the video.
