The Fantastic Sesame Street Birdman Parody


If there were an Oscar for "Best Parody", the whole of the Academy would probably have to examine itself for having made a mockery of its own awards. But if there were, Sesame Workshop's efforts would sweep the board.

Riffing on the superb Oscar contender Birdman, the minds behind the Sesame Workship - the nonprofit educational charity behind Sesame Street - have paralleled the haunted world of Michael Keaton's former star Riggan with a portrayal of the self-conflicted ego of Big Bird actor and veteran puppeteer Caroll Spinney.

This is top, top quality spoofery.
