I open up Google Chrome and Yahoo, my homepage, displays. One of the top stories was this. Sesame Street: Smell Like a Monster. My first reaction, “Okay, what has Sesame Street done now?
Some of you may remember a few weeks ago, Katy Perry was supposed to appear on Sesame Street as part of their idea of keeping up with the times(More like making this show tolerable for adults.) A segment in which she wore an outfit that parents complained was “too sexy” for kids, was cut from a recent taping of the show. Well, on the season premier of Saturday Night Live, she was scheduled as the host and in one of the skits, she came out wearing a low-cut shirt featuring the face of Elmo and a short plaid skirt. This was an obvious attempt at “poking” fun at the whole scandal.
Continue past the jump for videos and more.
Here goes the original taped skit that never appeared on Sesame Street:
Here goes the SNL parody:
I think it’s great that she decided to poke fun at the situation. What was even better was that Amy Poehler was involved. I think the woman has great amounts of talent.
With that said, Sesame Street has taken its turn with a parody of its own. I’m sure you’ve seen the Old Spice commercial with the Man on the Horse. if not, click here.(I don’t wanna load this post up with too many videos.) Well, Grover has his own promotion, but it’s for the word “On”. This is a must see for anyone who either a) likes the old spice commercials, b) anyone who has children and watches Sesame Street along with them, or c) anyone who remembers watching Sesame Street as a kid.
This is a prime example of how Sesame Street is what kids should be watching when they’re young. Not only does it teach them lots of important things, but it also teaches them in a fun way.
