Alright Sesame Street, I’ll bite. How DO you take The Hunger Games, the story of a dystopian future where kids kill each other for sport, into something suitable for your audience?
With cookies, of course.
Sesame Street has remade a lot of pop culture staples recently, and their latest is “The Hungry Games: Catching Fur” starring who else? Cookieness Evereat who must win the Hungry Games by eating a ton of food. That actually sounds amazing.
Their vision is brought to life in the short video above, and hopefully it will content little kids to think they’ve seen the movie without needing to beg their parents to go to the real one.
Also, can we talk about Catching Fire’s ridiculously high RT score right now? Yikes.
