Sesame Street Spoofs ‘Game of Thrones’ in Adorable Parody (VIDEO)
Sesame Street has parodied virtually every major TV show in pop culture. From Downton Abbey and Sons of Anarchy to Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire, the kids’ show hasn’t really shied away from parodies of adult TV shows.
The latest parody is an adorable take on Game of Thrones in which the audience learns the finer points of musical chairs from Grover, of all people (well, puppets). Naturally, one of those chairs is the Iron Thrones, although it’s made of gold clubs instead of the swords of the vanquished. Sprinkled throughout the sketch are references only adults would probably get, such as subtle nods to the special relationship between Cersei Lannister and her twin brother, Jamie, as well as that wedding Robb Stark has to attend. We even get puppet versions of Melisandre and Tyrion Lannister, just to up the surrealness quotient. Yes, it’s Game of Chairs, and it’s kind of awesome.
