Watch Sesame Street's near-perfect House of Cards parody

New, 13 comments

Sesame Street, which lives to put its own spin on pop culture (e.g. Birdman) as it wholly embraces technology, has released an aptly timed parody of Netflix's House of Cards. As it turns out, the story of the three little pigs is a perfect parable for the first two seasons of House of Cards. Consider this your primer for the new season, set to (officially) debut this Friday.

Exaggerated southern accent? Check. Long, sometimes poetic asides to the audience? Check. A chance to teach kids the basics of subtraction? Check. Heavy use of double entendre to make jabs at the problems in our government? Check, check, check, check.

In the words of Frank Underwolf himself, "Some people say there's too much pork in this town. I could not agree more." Ditto.
