The “summer of Call Me Maybe” has reached its logical conclusion, as Sesame Street has decided to jump on the bandwagon and release their own parody of the megahit.
Since first appearing on Youtube back in March, Carly Rae Jespen’s infectious tribute to the casual summer fling has amassed nearly 150 million views. The track’s popularity has spawned dozens of parodies and covers from the likes of Jimmy Fallon, the Miami Dolphins cheerleading squad, the Harvard baseball team, and it even appeared on this year’s Miss America pageant.
And now, Cookie Monster gets his turn. Not much for romantic engagements, his one-track mind has him thinking about only one thing.
“Hey, me just met you – and this is crazy. But you got COOKIE! So share it maybe.”
So, how does Cookie Monster’s version compare to the original?
