Orange Is the New Black Sesame Street parody features Moustache, Piper Snackman and Googly Eyes
A new Orange Is the New Black Sesame Street parody has been released today, the latest in a long line of brilliant “muppet-izing” of popular shows. They’ve done everything from Downton Abbey (“Upside Downton Abbey”) to True Blood (“True Mud”) and Twin Peaks (“Twin Beaks”). You can check out the Orange Is the New Black Sesame Street parody in the player below. This was published just in time for the show’s fifth season, which premieres this Friday.
In the Orange Is the New Black Sesame Street parody, we get a near perfect version of the opening credits, with close-ups of muppet faces and a reworking of the lyrics. The setting changes from Litchfield Penitentiary to Litchfield Academy. New student Piper Snackman (a parody of Piper Chapman played by Taylor Schilling) appears and teacher Moustache (a parody of Porn Stache, played by Pablo Schreiber) declares snack time. Piper, like she does in the show, upsets Red (Kate Mulgrew in the show) by insulting her nutritional choices. Everyone is represented, including Googly Eyes, a stand in for Crazy Eyes, played by Uzo Aduba.
In Season 5 of the Netflix series, a riot sparked by Poussey’s death quickly escalates when the inmates gain control of the prison. Once they get a taste of power, chaos erupts in the halls of Litchfield. The unprecedented season will take place in real time and over the course of just three days, leaving the inmates’ lives forever changed as they are emboldened to fight for redemption, resolution and the respect they deserve.
The new season will debut on Friday, June 9 exclusively in all Netflix territories. What did you think of the Orange Is the New Black Sesame Street parody? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @ComingSoonnet.
