Since the incredibly addictive Flappy Bird app has been deleted from app stores just this past week, there are tons of spoofs that are swooping in to get a piece of the fame. Sesame Street has introduced its own funny twist on the game, called 'Flappy Bert.'

In the game, Bert is carried by a blue bird through a series of pipes. Just like the original game, it's challenging, but incredibly addictive. When the bird collides with a pipe, causing Bert to fall to the ground, he cries out for his friend Ernie. If you do manage to score a point, Bert giggles.

Since the highly difficult original Flappy Bird game was so popular, it seems fitting that Sesame Street has not made it any easier for kids, or any of the adults who will try it out.
