You have to hand it to Sesame Street for serving kids yet retaining a certain hipness that even adults can appreciate. In this case, they’ve created the parody before the real movie opens – on Thursday.
In less than 24 hours, their ‘Hungry Games – Catching Fire’ parody of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ has already posted well over a half million views. The story (as Sesame Street describes it):
Cookieness Evereat is back to play in the Hungry Games. Can Cookieness and her friends, Finnicky, Tick Tock Lady, and Pita escape from the poking monkeys and tickling winds? Find out in The Hungry Games: Catching Fur. May the cookies be ever in your flavor.
While you’re waiting for the 2 hour 26 minute movie to open this Thursday, take a look at this.
It’s a LOT shorter and funny.
