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...

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
