Mashup Has Peanuts Gang Playing Rush’s ‘2112’

If you've got 20 minutes to spare, and like Charlie Brown and Rush, you will want to watch this impressively well-executed combination of cartoon clips set to music produced by Terry Brown and performed by Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart.

YouTube user Garren Lazar, has edited clips of Charlie Brown and the gang singing along to “Jet Airliner” by Steve Miller, “Freebird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the entirety of Pink Floyd’s The Wall, but he says that parodying Rush’s classic 1976 album 2112 was challenging.

Posting on YouTube, Lazar states: “Ladies and gentlemen, 2112 is officially the most difficult Peanuts Parody I've ever made to date. I know what you're thinking; ‘you did the entire The Wall album by Pink Floyd! How is this harder?’ It's not about the length that makes doing a parody of a song a challenge, it's the aesthetics of a song. 2112 was not all about syncing, I had to incorporate other skills other than Final Cut Pro; such as Adobe Photoshop, and other tools to make this video possible. But, in the end, it was worth it, and I hope that you all enjoy it!”
