Sesame Street Dogpiles on Spider-Man Musical
Posted by Videoson 06/13/2011 at 3:21 PM
The five best parts of “Spidermonster: The Musical,” the latest heaping of dirt on the grave of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark (from Sesame Street, of all places):
5. The gloriously over-the-top female announcer (“And now…curtain, up! On Spider-Monster…THE MYYYOOOOSICAL!!!“).
4. Mr. Johnson’s subtle “Hm, I wonder where everyone else is?” dig at the show’s poor attendance.
3. The way the guitar and vocal line on “I Am Spider-Monster” directly imitates the chorus of U2′s “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” (which, having never seen the show, we presume every song in Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark sounds exactly like).
2. “It is only our 17th opening night, sir! We still have a few kinks to work out!”
1. The depiction of Bono as an indifferent, hulking, orange blob with blue hair and Fly sunglasses.
