Trey has really been digging Sesame Street this week. And so have I. Every day they have clever sketches that I can tell are educating Trey and at the same time they entertain me.
Today they covered triangles and had singer James Blunt as a guest. He sang a song that I hate – one of those pop/top40 songs that you hear for a while on the radio and in any store you visit. However, Sesame Street rewrote the words and he sang about finding a triangle. I love how they’ve taken a song that was originally quite silly and put it into a silly context. A highlight of the video was the slow-mo disco scenes.
I think I like the Sesame St. version better and so I sang along to Trey. Throughout the day he would look at me and say “triangle?” in a really high-pitched voice and I would respond by breaking into the catchy song. Watch the video below and you’ll be singing “A triangle… my triangle” over and over too.
