Sesame Street Just Did a Birdman Parody No Kid Will Understand


It is, perhaps, the greatest parody they’ve ever done – from a grown-up, cinephile perspective.

For a kid, it’s a confusing bit about an old man who’s unfamiliar to them, and a possible head trip when parents have to explain that that’s the man who’s usually inside Big Bird, but in this one there’s a different man inside Big Bird even though the old man is doing both their voices, and no, Big Bird didn’t eat anyone, he’s not a real bird, he’s just a big ol’ puppet, and oh shit, please stop crying! Here’s a cookie – want a cookie? You have to stop crying if I give you the cookie, right?

(the drumming is less annoying too)
