Sesame Street Parodies Birdman with Hilarious Results (Video)

20 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sesame Street's parodies have been historically delightful, and they've reached a new peak with their new, perfectly-timed Birdman spoof, titled (a bit predictably) Big Birdman. The clip stars 81-year-old Carroll Spinney, who's played Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street since 1969. It's full of witty call-outs to Birdman: Spinney walks the streets, harangued by his avian alter-ego, who chastises him, "Maybe we should have done that Raymond Carver play." While we're on the subject of Muppets adapting 20th-century literature, we'd like to also remind you of this spot-on Waiting for Godot parody, titled "Waiting for Elmo." If you needed not one, »
