Sesame Street's very own Cookie Monster has created an audition tape to convince the gang at Saturday Night Live that he should host the show. Sesame Street posted the video today on YouTube and Facebook.

Cookie Monster says is drive behind the urge to host SNL is to "branch out beyond me cookie-eating career."

The four-minute clip followes Cookie Monster as he does his very own run through of a SNL host.

After the opening monologue, the skits include a "MacGruber"parallel "Macarooner," a few "Weekend Update" jokes and even a musical guest appearance as "Monster Gaga."

So what is with all the social networking campaign tactics? Cookie Monster may be trying to follow the Betty White model, as the 88-year-old  hosted an episode of SNL earlier this year after a Facebook campaign worked hard to put her there.
