Cookie Monster Auditions For SNL
Hot on the pants of Betty White's facebook campaign that got her hosting Saturday Night Live and changed her career, another celebrity has started his own campaign to host the long running comedy show.
Sesame Street's own Cookie Monster has launched a viral campaign to host Saturday Night Live and his video audition is funnier than an actual SNL sketch.
"Help Cookie's dream come true," the monster implored, urging fans to "like" his Facebook group!
The Muppets were a recurring feature on SNL back in the 70's so why not Cooke? As of this morning Cookie Monster had 48,000 fans who have liked his page (and counting).
In the audition video, Cookie Monster performs an opening monilogue, then puts on various costumes and wigs to play cookie-loving versions of the popular SNL chracters.
He does Macarooner a funny send up of MacGruber.
Cookie Monster also displays his incredible musical talent, performing a tribute of Lady Gaga's hit "Poker Face" by changing the lyrics to "Cookie Face." Now I can't stop walking around singing "my my my cookie face, my my cookie face."
Cookie Monster even does a crumby version of the cookie news.
I think that everyone should take a moment and go to Cookie Monster's facebook page and give him some love. I can't wait for him to host Saturday Night Live!
