Yes, Thomas the Tank Engine is a classic, but this one works on many levels. I count at least two – maybe three if the “world is gonna roll me” lyric can be said to reflect Sekiro’s notorious difficulty.
You already know what I’m talking about from the headline, but yes, some genius has replaced Sekiro’s Chained Ogre miniboss with Shrek, the big green ogre from the animated movie. It looks like a simple body swap, as Shrek executes the same attacks – wrestling-inspired drop-kicks and powerbombs seem almost more appropriate when it’s Shrek performing them.
The mod comes to our attention via Lance McDonald, who added Smashmouth’s ‘All Star’ to footage of the mod. It’s perfect, but sadly it’s not a part of the mod itself. Incidentally, McDonald has built a YouTube channel on finding cut content in the Souls games, and he’s done his work with Sekiro, too – here are 11 minutes of cut Sekiro content.
Here’s a preview:

You can download ‘Shrek the Ogre’, by dropoff and Katalash, at Nexus mods here. You’ll need the Sekiro Mod Engine – also available at that page – to install it.

In other Sekiro news, the input gimmick runs have begun, with players beating the game with bongo drums and its hardest bosses with steering wheels. For more body-swapping fun, check out this model pack, which enables you to replace Sekiro himself – not just his enemies – with a range of NPC models up to and including a giant lizard.
