Sesame Street Page 1
Happy Monday Afternoon! To celebrate, please take one minute and nineteen seconds to enjoy this video of Heidi Klum, Elmo, and a boot talking about compliments on Sesame Street. We promise it will brighten your day.
Puppets have weirdly been on our radar as of late — there was Grover‘s Old Spice video, the “I Love My Hair” song, the Katy Perry Sesame Street debacle (and subsequent SNL appearance), and, of course, the Lady Gaga Muppet movie rumor. So it was really only a matter of time before someone combined said monster puppets and Kanye‘s “Monster” to create a viral mashup video.
Last week when we posted Sesame Street‘s song “I Love My Hair”, we had no idea that it would be one of our most popular stories — and we had no idea that the person who wrote it was a white guy who only recently became aware of the issues some black women have with their hair.
What a week, people! Gap returned to its roots, a Kardashian got naked and Karl designed an island. Plus, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry duke it out for the pop star nail polish crown. Scandalous!
As if we needed another reason to love Sesame Street. This time, the variety puppet show that’s as entertaining for adults as it is for children dedicated a two-minute musical interlude to encouraging young black girls to love their hair.
Instead of doing the responsible, intellectual thing and starting up a discussion about post modernism like we should, we’re just going to post this video of “Sesame Street’s” Grover imitating this summer’s Old Spice commercials without much comment. Because it’s three kinds of adorable and two brands of awesome that aren’t even for sale yet, and we just can’t argue with that.
Katy Perry was supposed to star on the New Year’s Eve episode of Sesame Street, but apparently the cleavage-revealing dress she wore for the taping isn’t sitting right with parents.
