Can you tell me how to get … how to get to Sesame Street?
Apparently, the best way to 2019’s skid row version of Sesame Street is through Saturday Night Live!
As “Joker” reigns supreme at the box office, SNL poked fun at the film by giving us a preview of the origin story of another fictional character: Oscar the Grouch.
Oscar, played by David Harbour, is a disgruntled — yup, you guessed it, grouchy — garbage worker in the neighborhood of Sesame Street, which has become a haven for crime and corruption.
And times have changed on the street where everything’s A-OK!
Ernie gets stabbed in an alleyway after he refuses to hand over his rubber ducky. The Count seems to have an opioid addiction. Cookie Monster is homeless. Elmo gets arrested after being racially profiled.
You gotta see this to believe it.
It’s really that good.
