You know a song has reached iconcic status when it’s copied by an internationally beloved character like Cookie Monster. Sesame Street’s sweets-obsessed furry blue friend performs his take on Icona Pop’s “I Love It” with a cookie-themed rendition called “I Want It (But Me Wait)”. In the cute clip, which will be included in the educational series’ whopping 44th season kicking off on September 16, the loveable monster sings about his insatiable appetite for cookies, but determination to hold off. I mean even Cookie Monster has to exercise self-control and portion control sometimes, right?
