Chase Holfelder is a musician who has become "internet famous" by making videos of popular songs in a different key.

The happiest of songs can be made to sound sad when Holfelder makes them over in a minor key; one that has received well over three million YouTube views is his minor-key version of Cyndi Lauper's 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun." It takes on a whole new personality and feeling after Holfelder gives it his musical makeover. 

This week, Holfelder seems to have been saddened, as many were, by the announcement that Toys"R"Us has decided to shutter every one of its stores. He was inspired by the news of the toy store's demise to make a video of its famous jingle, "I don't want to grow up, I'm a Toys"R"Us kid..." but, of course, in a minor key. 

And 1.2 million internet viewers mourned the loss together with Chase. 

Take a look.
