As the last season of Game of thrones you showed, Westeros is at war. The division between the factions has pushed the Seven Kingdoms to a breaking point, and it seems that there is only one hope of peace. Not Daenerys Targaryen and his dragons, nor Jon Snow and his overly developed sense of justice. No, like The latest HBO promotions, only Elmo, of House Sesame Street, can now save the kingdom.
"Elmo thinks you have to respect each other," said Elmo, embarking on a tense negotiation between Tyrion and Cersei Lannister. "When Elmo has a problem with his friends like Abby or Cookie Monster, Elmo does not get angry, Elmo listens and learns from what they have to say." But instead of being cut into blurry red pieces by the zombie corps of The Mountain (as would probably happen with Gsoul of thrones), it seems that the Fuzzy Muppet has accomplished what years of fighting and countless lives could not accomplish.
"If we stop fighting and work together, we can be stronger," Tyrion thinks, echoing the arguments made by Jon Snow in the premiere of season 7, when the so-called king of the North was summoned to Cersei for try to take it away. to their cause But Elmo seems to have succeeded where irrefutable evidence of hordes of undead on the verge of annihilating the entire living population of Westeros (which apparently includes Sesame Street) have failed, convincing Cersei and Tyrion of their own. try to put aside their differences and respect each other.
They then grilled Elmo with cups of wine.
At this point in this surrealist table of branded content, you may remember that HBO has an agreement with Sesame Workshop, granting the premium cable network exclusive rights to first-run the popular children's show. This video is part of a new Sesame Street Respect for Others campaign, featured in one of the most violent, sexual, and globally less relevant television series for young children, featuring current actors in this series.
This is also not the first Sesame / Thrones collaboration. There was the Set of chairs parody segment that was aired during an episode of Sesame Street back in 2015, and a Share the laughter campaign with The Thrones Harington star kit in 2017.
That would be pretty strange in itself, but HBO did not stop there: there is also "Respect World", an even stranger parody that sees Cookie Monster – a visitor to a Delos Park still untraceable, Sesame World – join Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) in the middle of one of their sessions.
As the Game of thrones segment, this clip communicates with a message of mutual respect and open communication. But it's hard to remember that when your brain tries to analyze Cookie Monster serving cookies in front of glasses The weird milk of Westworld (# Milkworld), as a pianist, covers the theme song of the show in its characteristic style.
The HBO campaign includes rap by Common, featuring the Muppet versions of Cersei, Tyrion, Bernard and Delores singing and dancing with the Sesame Street gang.
Fortunately, these are the only crossover clips released by HBO to date, but we can only imagine the possibility that Sésame Workshop and HBO can take matters into their own hands. Will Bert and Ernie join Tony Soprano to help him solve his faults for senseless murders committed by the mafia? Maybe Grover can team up with Al Swearengen? The possibilities are limitless.
