True Mud

So, Sesame Street was all over last week when the Katy Perry song and dance with Elmo was first leaked online and then pulled from the actual telecast for being "too hot".  That business is ridiculous, for one, but it's for the best, as all the little children already love Katy Perry so much that the damage has been done (I am so serious.  From what I can tell, 85% of the Katy Perry fan base is made up of kids under the age of 10.  I'm not even being a sarcastic ass about this) and there's a pretty good chance they will always have a special place in their hearts for the wide-eyed pop none-talent.   Alright, Perry bashing aside, the better pop cultural reference put out by the Muppets on Sesame Street last week was a spoof on True Blood (following in the vein of past Mad Men and 30 Rock puppet skewerings).   If you've seen the HBO original, you'll get a kick out of the revised opening credits and Muppet Lafayette strolling through the scene.  Too bad we couldn't get Eric in there somewhere....

  1. 1) The sheriff is quite accurate as well.

    2) I wish Bill would have said "Sookie"

    3) The mud at the upper left corner of the screen at the end of the video looks like a penis.

    That is all.
