Video News Update: July 12, 2012

The folks at Sesame Street have always been innovating and on the cutting edge of pop culture, with their numerous references and spoofs, not only on the show, but on the internet as well. This trend brilliantly continues with their latest spoof video: "Share It Maybe," a direct take on the smash-hit song "Call Me Maybe." The video derives from a joke sent out by @sesamestreet on Twitter last month, "Cookie Monster: Me just met you. Dis is crazy. But me love cookies! Gimme, maybe?" This expanded into a full-fledged, hysterical video starring Cookie Monster and the staff of Sesame Workshop. Enjoy!

Tuesday was the birthday of Muppeteer legend and friend of The Muppet Mindset, Jerry Nelson. To celebrate, longtime Muppet producer and writer Craig Shemin posted yet another amazing video of Jerry recording in the studio for his incredible, must-own album Truro Daydreams (which you absolutely must go buy right now if you haven't already). Check out Jerry performing the wonderful song "Noah's Ark" alongside his Muppeteer colleagues Tyler Bunch, Leslie Carrara-Rudolph, and Stephanie D'Abruzzo!

Finally, I'm thrilled to reveal a teaser for an incredibly exciting interview with one of the greatest Muppeteers working today. I won't say who it is, but I will post this picture as a hint.
Any guesses? The interview will be going up soon, so keep checking back on The Muppet Mindset to find out for sure!
