As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, Sesame Workshop is launching a video campaign about respect. Sounds reasonable enough.
Except…the videos include Elmo, a character designed to connect with children, and villains like Cersei Lannister, a character I hope no child ever becomes aware of.
Another video takes place in Westworld, another show that is decidedly not age-appropriate for children.
And these videos were not cheap to make! The actors, the production, the music…it’s all extremely authentic! We’ve got them right here and I can’t stop watching:
Sesame Street: Respect is Coming
Props to the actors, by the way, who absolutely stay true to character in this silly (by design, I think?) scene.
Sesame Street: Respect World
And can someone please bring me a cookie???
Sesame Street: Give it, live it, RESPECT feat. Common
According to the press release, the “Respect Brings Us Together” campaign will roll out throughout the year.
