Sesame Street just got a bajillion times cooler with this Cookie Monster cover of Icona Pop’s hit “I Love It.” In true Sesame Street fashion, the lovable, grammatically challenged blue monster sings a truly epic spin-off titled “Me Want It (But Me Wait),” referring to his self-restraint when it comes to a bowl of chocolate chip cookies.
This video has gone viral in our office already this morning, proving that Cookie Monster is just as hip with the grownups as the little ones! We love the club lighting and streamers dancing in the background while Cookie and his friends bust a move to the catchy song that actually teaches kids a valuable lesson about patience.
Our favorite part about the whole video? #controlmeself
We feel like Stefon from Saturday Night Live, but seriously, this video has everything: Cookie Monster, cookies, club music, sick beats, and all of Cookie’s best friends from the show as backup dancers! Of course, after almost three minutes of waiting, Cookie has had enough and indulges himself in a bowl of massive cookies, but he deserves it. Just think of all those calories he just burned with that dance routine!
