Sesame Street "Old Spice Guy" Parody Wins the Internet

| 9 Oct 2010 00:58

Stop what you're doing right now. It's over, guys. Turn the internet off, we're done.

While many of our readers at The Escapist are located all over the world, here at our home base in Durham, North Carolina it's Friday night. That means it's time to post something silly, adorable, or just plain odd to kick off the weekend. This video happens to be all three.

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. This is a Sesame Street skit starring everybody's lovable skinny blue monster Grover in a parody of the popular Old Spice commercial with Isaiah Mustafa. In it, he helps teach children the meaning of the word "on," while simultaneously making almost every adult who has grown up on Sesame Street break out into a fit of smiles.

History will show that I do love parodies involving Muppets, but I think I'm vindicated in this one. It's educational, it's incredibly clever - if only for the ending alone - and it's really, really cute.

I don't think we need the internet anymore. Something tells me we're not going to top this. This is the pinnacle of human creation right here.

Okay, maybe it isn't quite that monumental. Either way, it's just a great way to start off the weekend. (Unless you're in a time zone where it's already the weekend, in which case it's just awesome.)
