Sesame Street parodies Birdman just in time for the Oscars

New, 4 comments

As if Big Bird winning Twitter wasn't enough? Since Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman is currently a top contender the Best Picture Oscar, it probably made perfect sense for the Sesame Workshop to send up the drama before the event. In this short parody, Sesame Street legend Caroll Spinney is plagued by the spectre of Big Bird himself (voiced by current performer Matt Vogel). The bit works from beginning to end, and even gets Iñárritu's camerawork down brilliantly. The only thing we wonder at this point is whether or not a Boyhood parody is still possible.
