Sesame Street has been a lot of things, but one thing it’s never been is a crime-infested ghetto. Until now, at least in the eyes of SNL.
You must check out the video above if you didn’t see it! It’s a trailer for a “movie” called Grouch, which closely resembles a movie about a certain Joker that’s currently all the rage. It’s the origin story of Oscar the Grouch. The title character is a completely non-muppified Oscar, who makes his home on Sesame Street, and is finding himself increasingly disgusted with the conditions there.
The satire is perfectly done. And I have to admit that my favorite shot was of human versions of Bert and Ernie being relieved of the precious rubber ducky.
Yesterday, I talked about a real movie that would be great to watch on Halloween. But you can also treat yourself to this excellent parody trailer. Watch it in the dark!
