Jeff Bridges and Cookie Monster singing “Silver Bells” on Saturday Night Live is a viral hit today! The holiday tune went viral last night as soon as the song was over.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the cookie obsessed blue monster got the idea to get on SNL from Betty White, “taking a cue from Betty White fans, Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster turned to Facebook last month to launch a campaign to host Saturday Night Live.”
Cookie Monster might not have realized his dream for a SNL hosting gig but everyone’s favorite blue furry guy has to be happy about his surprise guest gig and duet Tron: Legacy star Jeff Bridges.
Jeff Bridges is everywhere this weekend! His movie Tron: Legacy opened this weekend with good reviews and a great box office take! Bridges also stars in a remake of True Grit, with Matt Damon and Josh Brolin, which opens December 22. The original True Grit won John Wayne his only Oscar. Hollywood is already buzzing that True Grit might give Jeff Bridges back-to-back Academy Awards. Enjoy the clip below of Jeff Bridges and Cookie Monster singing a holiday duet.
