Words that describe Sesame Street: fun, educational, but current?
It would seem so as one of the show's most loveable characters has flexed his pipes to the a hit tune.
The Cookie Monster sang Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," a song chiming in at No. 2 on iTunes July 9 music chart.
It was a video many faithful Sesame Streets fans had been waiting for, after @SesameStreet tweeted this clever peek last month: "Cookie Monster: Me just met you. Dis is crazy. But me love cookies! Gimme, maybe."
And less than 24 hours after hitting YouTube, "Share It Maybe" had more than 600,000 views. Not 150 million as Jepsen's video is approaching, but not bad all the same.
