Somehow Run the Jewels Syncs Perfectly With 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives'

It's the most logical pairing since cheese and Pop Tarts were first in flagrante delicto. Run the Jewels and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives is the new "Dark Side of the Moon" played over The Wizard of Oz

The discovery was made by L.A.-based producer and director Anthony Troli, who paired a clip from the show of barbecue lothario Guy Fieri with RTJ's "Legend Has It." The song from the duo of Killer Mike and El-P is weirdly perfect for the first-ever TV show capable of putting meat sweat pit stains in your flame-adorned bowling shirt.

The video Troli posted is beautiful. But he added, "I’m not exaggerating when I say this works with every RTJ song and DDD episode. Trust me. I’ve done it." That's probably a joke, but if it's not, the footage needs to be immediately released. 

Even better, Run the Jewels should get in on it. Run the Jewels 3 should become Drive the Jewels with all the songs remixed with samples from DDD episodes. It wouldn't be any weirder than Meow the Jewels. (And the crowd says Triple D.)
