If you keep up on current events, you may already know that NYC is being overrun by those looking for some necessary change, and this demonstration has been dubbed: Occupy Sesame Street.

The parody of the Occupy Wall Street debacle has been done using the iconic puppets that are usually known as calm and collected children’s entertainment, now turned into angry anarchists in need of detainment. A social media movement has even been created with the Occupy Sesame Street having their own Facebook page and tweets sent out like “Demand 1: A rubber ducky in every tub” or “Counting vampires are destroying America.”

From Grover being grabbed by police officers to Bert cuffed and clinker-bound, the Occupy Sesame Street parody is a hilarious twist on a real-life uproar. Stats for Protesting Puppet Parodies Trending: Older & Buzzing
