People on the Internet mashing up Sesame Street to gangsta rap – give it up. Actual Sesame Street has you beat for adult-themed incongruity, again.
Make no mistake – this is a wonderful parody.
It is also full of coded references to all the incest, poisonings, murders and so on that any parent who watches GoT will get. So I have to ask – when do we get Fifty Shades of Green with Oscar the Grouch? (I would be completely unsurprised to hear that it exists and I missed it.)
i also fear that in this world of “Chesteros,” a mortal feud is about to begin, due to House Grover hijacking Count Von Count’s function as the counting guy.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
