Don't have much to say except ... Loved it!
this make me excited more SS viral videos!!!
You know, I really didn't think Cookie Monster was going to be one of the classic Sesame Street characters that transcended the kiddie-TV box he so often found himself in...
...but between this and the Saturday Night Live audition reel (and subsequent cameo) and his screamingly-funny Colbert Report visit in 2007, I think David Rudman and the Sesame Street writers have hit on something wonderful that could endure for years beyond most children's-character shelf lives.
WAY TO GO COOKIE!!! NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM...
Weird and good at the same time. Also the first time I heard David Rudman's cookie monster voice. I like Frank Oz's better. But hey, the parents should Like it maybe!
THIS IS MADNESS!!! But I'd be lying if I said I didn't love it.
Seriously? He's only been performing Cookie Monster for practically a decade.
Okay. I mean I've seen others like Eric's bert and grover but still, I just don't watch SS these days. So I don't notice some changes.
I just don't get the time to watch ss these days. I've been getting caught up in GMC lately. I have seen Eric's Bert and Grover and Whitmires's Ernie though.
I liked the video, it made me think for a minute that it was footage leaked from the new SS movie. But then I realized, this is only a video.
Overall, liked the video so much that I wish that they'd release the song on iTunes as I'd download it on my iPod touch!
I'm actually really not sure about how I feel about this!
It's super cute, but I would like to see more original songs/clips. Most of the Sesame Street clips that I still remember and love from when I was a wee thing were original ones, like "Doing the Batty Bat," "Eight Balls of Fur," "What a Gift" (and sketches without songs, like Ernie and Bert in Egypt)...
I would love to see Sesame Workshop release a successful viral video WITHOUT drawing heavily from popular culture. I don't dislike it, and Sesame Street and pop culture are buddies, but an original clip would impress me a lot more
See, the thing of it is, even a majority of their original work is derived from pop culture in same way or another... matter of fact, you mentioned "Eight Balls of Fur" as an original, when in actuality, it too is a parody of the old Jerry Lee Lewis hit "Great Balls of Fire".
That's not to say all of their original work is inspired or influenced by pop culture, but some of it is.
Fun, fun, fun. I love it when they step away from education for a minute and do something just for grins.
This song makes my ears bleed. They bleed a little less with Cookie singing it.
I love the muppets but i don't like rap music i do apologize for any trouble with this post tho
This isn't rap, it's pop.
: Me like pop with cookies, though me prefer milk - but me not fussy.
This is very true! Thanks
I watched the video yesterday. I thought it was cute. I wonder if Carly Rae Jepsen likes it?
I think any celebrity should consider it an honor to have their song parodied on Sesame Street.
The original song does nothing for me and not one I would have picked to parody. But I am loving Sesame's enthusiasm to set the whole thing up. It was a well written and well thought out video. There's even cute choreography.
Sure this wasn't done on some fancy sound stage, but I love that they took what they had and ran with it. I'm just in awe of these people that get to go to work and have someone say, "Hey we're making a video today with Cookie Monster, wanna be in it?"
Kudos for taking a popular song, using a popular medium (Twitter) and getting our lovable Muppets out there to the masses.
