Grover was always my favorite, now I know why!

I'm sure you've all seen this Old Spice commercial with NFL wide receiver Isaiah Mustafa. I had no idea that he was actually a star already. I think he will always be known as the Old Spice Guy to me and most people out there! I get such a kick out of watching it!

(Turn off music before playing)

Well now Sesame Street is doing a spoof on it with my favorite character Grover. Out of all the characters he truly was my favorite and still is. When I was a kid I got Grover for Christmas and boy do I remember how happy I was when I opened him. I still have him. I'd say he is 32 years old by now! My kids get a kick out of him and talk about how "ancient" he is!

When I saw this video...

This parody, which features Grover sporting a towel just like Isaiah, is inviting people to "smell like a monster." Instead of "look at your man" he tells us to look at themselves then at him.

"Sadly, you are not a monster," he says. He is hoping to teach us all about the word on, because as we all know Sesame Street is all about teaching the word of the day! He concludes by saying, "Anything's possible when you smell like a monster and know the word on."

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! Have a great night and don't forget my favorite little monster's word of the day!
