Forgive me for saying, but this is a week that's gone to the puppets. Yesterday The Muppets premiered their version of Bohemian Rhapsody on YouTube (views are already sky-high... watch them keep going.) And today, we have a clip of Sesame Street entering the No Spin Zone.
That's right. Meet Spill O'Reilly, the newest anchor for Grouch News Network on Sesame Street. Between this and the recent Mad Men skit that took the Interwebs by storm, it is clear that some new, trailblazing social media genius has entered the Children's Television Workshop.
I love Spill O'Reilly. He's got the nerve of Bill, and the voice of a stereotypical New York City cab driver stuck in traffic and late to a Yankees game.
Watch Bill O'Reilly interview Spill O'Reilly. Sure, Spill doesn't sound much like Bill, but it's great seeing Bill interact with an ACTUAL puppet (versus the human puppets he usually deals with).
