For years we heard that winter is coming on Game of Thrones but now Sesame Street has entered into a partnership with the show to let people know that respect is coming. Or so they hope in this adorable clip that pairs up Elmo with those GoT siblings who hate each other — Tyrion and Cersei.
Their respective actors Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey are completely in character as Tyrion tells his sister that he only wants what’s best for Westeros while she responds she only wants for him to not get what he wants. He points out that this is why she doesn’t have any friends but before she can respond, both realize that someone has broken in.
It’s Sesame Street cutie Elmo! He tries to get the bitter sibs to realize that they need to respect each other and what happens next…well, you truly have to see it to believe it.
After all, no one is used to seeing this side of Cersei and chances are that if you’re watching the real show, you never will. But considering how Sesame Street and characters like Elmo try to bring out the best in everyone, you can’t blame them for trying to work a miracle in the Seven Kingdoms.
