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.
“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.
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?
