With Mitt Romney‘s PBS-Big Bird slam a ripe source for comedy this week, who better to add to the mockery than the Sesame Street character himself? Big Bird showed up on Weekend Update opposite Seth Meyers to react to his newfound celebrity.
Big Bird admitted that he had no idea that Romney name-dropped him until he got “millions of tweets.” Not Twitter tweets, just the tweets birds chirp at each other. Big Bird said he feels too famous now, whereas before he could blend in the crowd like any other normal eight-foot-tall talking bird.”
Meyers asked Big Bird if he wanted to make a political statement, but instead Big Bird opted to make another bird joke about politics.
