With the recent reports
about Katy Perry's appearance being cut from Sesame Street
, many have overlooked a gem of a segment airing on YouTube. The skit, titled True Mud
, parodies HBO vampire drama, True Blood
. It features puppet versions of Bill and Sookie, complete a fairly accurate imitation of vampires (renamed 'grouches') and Southern accents. The segment also parodies the Emmy-nominated title sequence.
In the past, Sesame Street has payed tribute to other popular adult shows such as Mad Men
, The Oprah Winfrey Show
and The Closer.
It seems that while pop culture is a perfect match for the critically acclaimed series, it's best kept subtle. No low cut yellow dresses in the future for this show.
