ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Cookie Monster from Sesame Street spoofs Carly Rae Jepsen's hit pop song "Call Me Maybe." [Video Link]
This reminds me of the best Occupy Sesame Street tweet: Why are 99% of the cookies consumed by 1% of the monsters?
This brought me so much joy, I decided to make my first comment on any blog ever.
As a parent of a kid who just reached Sesame Street age I’ve been watching for the first time in 25 years. While I think Grover was my favorite as a kid, Cookie Monster is clearly the thinking/older person’s Muppet.
So Awesome. I am sitting in a Starbucks crying I am laughing so hard, not embarrassed at all.
Man, how do all those thin people eat cookies and stay so thin?!
I did notice the plate of fruit in the meeting and that the cookies seemed untouched. I guess they were just tormenting Cookie Monster by carrying around a bowl of cookies, just out of his reach, and not even eating any.
Skim milk, LDO.
A cookie is a sometimes food.
when did the cookie monster get 2 hands?
Please, will someone single use “You got cookie, baby!” as a pick up line?
It no “If Moon Were Cookie”, but me can get behind it.
I’ve never actually heard the original. I guess when you get to be a certain age, you don’t get exposed to pop music unless it is being sung on Glee.
I was aware of it somehow, but hadn’t heart it either; here’s the video but Cookie Monster’s is better IMO.
For those that haven’t seen it, this also parodies a cover of the song when the singer was on Jimmy Fallon’s show.
I still don’t really like the song much, but seeing the Roots do it like this made it a bit more tolerable.
