'SNL' Clip of Jeff Bridges Dueting With Cookie Monster Becomes Viral Video Hit
"Silver Bells" spot ends "Sesame Street" character's quest to appear on late night sketch show.
Taking a cue from Betty White fans, Sesame Street's Cookie Monster turned to Facebook last month to launch a campaign to host Saturday Night Live. That dream was realized, for the most part, when the iconic blue character made a surprise guest spot opposite Tron: Legacy star Jeff Bridges on the Dec. 18 episode.
The duo helped close out the year with a fun rendition of "Silver Bells," which included the famous blue cookie critter giving Santa a pitch for an iPad -- for the digital "cookies," naturally.
The festive clip became a viral hit almost as soon as the last note was sung. Check it out here.
