What do you get when you combine John Oliver and Cookie Monster with a dash of Al Roker and Nick Offerman? You get fabulousness, that's what. Network news will never be the same.

The video is part of Sesame Street's new drive to increase kid's vocabulary, "Words Are Here, There, and Everywhere." I love it that they focus on Oliver's famous rant on "literally," but Cookie's response to it is perfection.

Also - let it play all the way to the end for some of the best bits. You can also check out the outtakes for more giggles.
