Sesame Street is back with a new parody. This one is just in time for this week’s release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. In it, Cookie Monster takes on the role of Gollum and all he wants is his “Precious” cookie. Can he resist temptation long enough for the video to teach kids about delayed gratification? Can I stop posting before I start making tantra jokes?

Legend speaks of a dessert unimaginably sweet and delicious, and when it was destroyed all that remained was the dessert’s powerful recipe. It remained in the hands of a monster named Gobble for a long time, but when it disappeared, all cookies on Monster Earth disappeared along with it. It is up to Cookie Monster to use his memory and remember the recipe in order to bake the cookies in the fires of Mount Crumb.
