Sesame Street has always had a knack for taking events in popular culture and tweaking them to fit their unique, Muppet-filled world. So it should be no surprise that they decided to parody the hottest song out right now, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” and make it extra fun and delicious by having Cookie Monster be the creature singing.
Check out the lyrics for a small sampling of wholesome goodness.
“Hey, me just met you, and this is crazy /
But you got cookie, so share it maybe.”
Cookie Monster has gone through a bit of a metamorphosis over the years, as Sesame Street tried to tackle the topic of childhood obesity by having the big blue monster explain to his small fans that cookies are actually a “sometimes” food. But when it comes to this song, our furry friend is back to loving his favorite snack, and fans are loving it. Talk about the video is flying across Twitter and Facebook, with viewers unanimously praising the well-produced music video. Check it out. You could even watch it with a glass of milk on the side, maybe.
