German Sesame Street Parody – Bernie und Ert

Bernie und ErtI’m not sure what I was looking for when I came across this one. Must have been something Sesame Street related. But wow. This just blew my mind.

For a moment I thought that this was the German version of Sesame Street. There are many international versions of the show, so I thought this could be the real thing. It’s not. The whole cyclops thing should have been my first clue, but I was tired.

So what is it?

According to the invaluable Muppet Wiki, “Bernie und Ert” was a sketch that appeared on “Freitag Nacht News”, a German sketch comedy show. (“Now is the time on Sprockets vhen ve dance!“) It is described as an “obscene parody of Sesamstrasse“, which is the German version of Sesame Street.

Here’s a couple of video clips. They’re in German, and since I don’t speak German, I have no idea if what they are saying is obscene or not. If you work somewhere where people speak German, this may be Not Safe For Work (NSFW). If not, well, who knows. To me, one-eyed muppet knock-offs speaking in German is creepy enough.
