In the latest installment of A.V. Club’s always-golden Undercover series, musician/comedian Reggie Watts offered his take Van Halen’s 1984 hit “Panama”. The resulting rendition features some spirited beatboxing as Watts explains a little history of the eponymous country and how its well-known canal actually functions.

For those purists out there complaining about Watts’ liberties with the song, he assured viewers that, thanks to the band graciously sending the song’s demo over, his version is utterly faithful. With that awesome golf sweater he’s got on, we’re inclined to take Watts’ word for it. Watch the replay below.
