Sesame Street goes Google

This morning I hit jackpot when I was skimming over videos, images, articles, and news items that could potentially make a great theme for my blog post. It appears that I'm not the only one who feels the need to keep current with the times, apparently our friends on Sesame Street have been adopting some of our modern day trends.  Elmo has in own iphone app, several characters have appeared as google logos and you can follow the sesame street characters on twitter (I am REALLY curious to what those tweets would look like.....especially for characters like "the count" and "oscar the grouch")  But my favorite of all was a "google search" commercial which was a parody that featured "google searches" done by Cookie Monster and Bert.  I showed it to my friend and it gave her a really good giggle to start her day.

Recent studies show that people who laugh actually live longer and the act of laughing itself releases chemicals and endorphins that are medically proven to contribute to health, wellness and longevity.  If you haven't laughed in awhile, I hope that the sound of laughter fills the air as you watch these spots as well as this bonus footage of the muppets doing their version of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody".
