Sesame Street Spoofs 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' (Video)
Starring Cookie Monster as Cookieness Evereat, the culinary-based take on the "Hunger Games" sequel joins parodies of "The Voice," "Homeland" and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire may not yet be in theaters, but a new parody video from Sesame Street is satisfying fans' appetite for franchise-inspired content. Entitled "The Hungry Games: Catching Fur," the spoof follows Cookie Monster as Cookieness Evereat -- alongside Pita, played by a piece of pita bread -- as they navigate food-related challenges to fight off poking monkeys and overwhelming fog.
The five-minute video opens with an ornate Elizabeth Banks-like puppet kicking off the reaping, saying, "May the cookies be ever in your flavor," and picks up at the Quarter Quell where players must simply eat the right foods to win the Hungry Games -- or so they thought. Cookieness Evereat, wearing the brunette braid sported by Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen, soon discovers that the challenges revolve around learning patterns and shapes through food, and jokes, "Being strong heroine of entire franchise hard work."
A final challenge almost pushes Cookieness to eat her counterpart Pita, but once that's solved in another way, Cookieness jokes, "Thankfully, me no have to ever, ever play that again!" Another puppet chimes, "You know they're making a third one, right?"
"Catching Fur" is the latest addition to the show's "Cookie Crumby Pictures" online library of spoofs, alongside parodies of True Blood, Homeland, The Voice and Icona Pop's "I Love It." The most popular spoof is a cookie-centric take on Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" with more than 15 millions views.
