Elmo brings peace to Westeros in Sesame Street's Game of Thrones sketch

Hannah Rogers | 20 April, 2019, 15:32

As part of Sesame Street's 50th anniversary, the iconic children's series has launched the "Respect Brings Us Together" campaign, highlighting the importance of respecting one another, even in disagreement - and even in the case of sworn enemies.

Freeze all motor function!

Elmo acts an intermediary between the siblings and persuades them to give his concept of respect a shot, using how he deals with a hard Cookie Monster as an example. "I'm willing to learn and listen if you are". "I only want what's best for Westeros".

Cersei Lannister chimes in, "And, I only want for you to not get what you want".

"Elmo thinks that you two need to respect each other".

Tyrion Lannister, who seems to be on board, says, "If we stop fighting and work together, we can be stronger". Game of Thrones' eighth and final season, meanwhile, continues Sundays at 9/8c. "When Elmo has a problem with his friends like Abby or Cookie Monster, Elmo doesn't get upset". If they can't get along, they can at least try!

As Elmo points out, both Cersei and Tyrion would be much better off if they simply set aside their family drama and made an effort to listen, understand, and, most importantly, R-E-S-P-E-C-T each other as knowledgable dignitaries.

Cookie Monster likened giving respect to sharing cookies with others. "Half a century later, our society is increasingly divided on many issues, and we know that kids pick up on this tension". Look how happy they all look - Muppets will do that to even a blood-thirsty, brother-loving queen.
