The Lannisters get a lesson in civility from… Elmo. Elmo, of Sesame Street.
HBO has dropped a Sesame Street – Game of Thrones crossover PSA, because they can, since they air both series. It’s a tonal mash that doesn’t work, of course, and that’s what makes this so great.
Cersai (Lena Headey) and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) are still at it, bickering and trading insults – until a certain red character turns up. “Elmo thinks that you two need to respect each other,” he says. “When Elmo has a problem with his friends like Abby, or Cookie Monster, Elmo doesn’t get upset. Elmo listens and learns from what they have to say.”
And wouldn’t you know it? They appear to agree. Alas, something tells us it won’t last…
