The Cookie Monster is currently sat atop Google’s homepage, literally eating his way through a cookie-constructed Google logo. This is to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street.
However, 27 years ago, the Cookie Monster was already well aware of Google despite it not having been thought of yet. And here’s the proof.
Here we have a clip from Sesame Street all the way back in 1982, with the Cookie Monster singing The Google Bugle.
OK, so it isn’t about Google the company, instead being a reference to his Google-eyes, with the song using words which rhyme with Google. Such as Oogle, Bugle, and well, that’s about it really.
It’s a strange example of the universe coming together but we get to see the Cookie Monster singing a funny song. And that’s all that really matters at the end of the day.
