Over the years, many have wondered as to the origins of Bert and Ernie. Have these two always been friends? When did they meet? What's Bert's mom like? Fortunately, Sesame Street has finally answered these questions in a new video. And, of course, they decided to use this opportunity to parody the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song.



Though some of their rhymes are dubious at best, the earnest story of how Bert moved to Sesame Street and met Ernie in his quest to find a friend to "laugh, learn, and share" would have been a slam dunk even if this weren't a pitch-perfect parody of Will Smith's iconic rap introduction.

Fans on Twitter were bopping right along with Bert and Ernie!







This is far from the first time Sesame Street has offered its take on a popular bit of pop-culture.


It seems Cookie Monster is a big fan of doing movie parodies...


Some of these should have received their own theatrical release!


What will Sesame Street take on next? Perhaps it's time Cookie Monster saved the world as Ethan Hunt in Cookie: Impossible - Chocolate Chip. One can only hope...

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.
