Cookie Monster Audition Tape for SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE Spawns Online Campaign

     November 23, 2010


Sure it was pretty great to have Betty White snag an Emmy winning hosting gig on Saturday Night Live thanks to an online campaign, but that’s so last season. The new hotness comes straight from a place where the air is sweet, a little place called Sesame Street. The clever minds behind the long-running children’s program are trying to give Cookie Monster the opportunity of a lifetime by crafting an audition tape featuring the furry, blur glutton lampooning the staple sketch comedy series with the help of some cookie humor. The audition tape (which you can see in its entirety below) has quickly spawned an online campaign via Facebook for the favorite muppet character to actually host Saturday Night Live.

While the thought itself is ripe with opportunities, I’m not sure the Children’s Television Workshop would be too keen on one of their iconic characters appearing on a late night sketch show more accustomed to adult humor (although he did make an appearance on The Colbert Report in 2008). However, it would be great if something could be arranged to have a special primetime episode with Cookie Monster that the whole family can enjoy. In the meantime, enjoy Cookie Monster’s entertaining audition tape for SNL after the jump.
