What would Cookie Monster Google?

I ran across on Mashable.com some very cute videos released from Sesame Street. They are parody videos of the Google search ads and examine what would Cookie Monster and Bert search for online.

From Mashable.com:

“Sesame Street has really gotten into the social media game in recent years: its Twitter is cute, relevant and totally in character; Elmo has his own iPhone app; and characters have even appeared as Google logos. Yeah, puppets are so hot right now.”

So just for fun, here are the two videos.


Bonus Video:

The article also links to the Muppets’ version of “Bohemian Rhapsody.” (I should have saved these for Fun Friday! Rats!)

So what do you think? Did you like Cookie’s Google search? What about Bert’s? (I think Cookie’s was cuter.) Why do you think Sesame Street has done so much with social media? It is to engage the kids or their parents?

…and I know your name is not Surely, but do you really think anyone cares who he/she/it/they might google? These topics have REALLY been lame for the past 5 – days…

Surely you jest… I’m sure it’s not easy to come up with new topics day after day – for years on end. There are plenty of other blogs for you to frequent. No one is holding you here. I’m fairly certain that Theresa can gauge interest and popularity of her blogs by the number of comments and hits she receives.

LOL. Light hearted stuff. Wondering what Snuff-a-luff-a-gus would google? My guess is medical marijuana. I love that guy. Big eye-lashes and all.

C'mon, R Jeff.....

@Roswell Jeff..You are only saying what others having been saying for years..Some just want to p*ss on every topic that Theresa writes..

I never watched Sesame Street as a child, nor do my little ones watch it now, so I don’t have anything to comment about on this.
