Things We Saw Today: Cookie Monster Flees Gingerbread Zombies in This Walking Dead Parody

In advance of The Walking Dead‘s eighth season premiere, Sesame Street has created another one of their allusions-for-the-adults parody sketches, with Cookie Monster serving as Sheriff Rick Grimes in their parody of The Walking Dead. In “The Walking Gingerbread,” zombie cookies called “crumbies” come after Cookie Monster and devour all his cookies. Truly evil! (via Nerdist)
