Play School is celebrating its 50th birthday by getting celebrities to perform covers of songs on the show this month, and video has now emerged of the likes of Powderfinger’s Bernard Fanning, rockers You Am I, Dan Sultan and Missy Higgins playing children’s songs on the beloved ABC program.
So far, Play School‘s ‘Celebrity Covers’ mini-episodes have seen You Am I show off their acting skills before debuting their rockin’ (and hilarious) version of the One Potato, Two Potato nursery rhyme, while Bernard Fanning performed an acoustic cover of the Morningtown Ride lullaby, which you can catch below.
