These go over (way over) the heads of most children, but they delight the parents, who are in many cases a captive audience.

Now Sesame Street has done it again. In a new video posted to YouTube by Mashable Watercooler called “Big Birdman: The Unexpected Virtue of Orange Pants,” Big Bird haunts Caroll Spinney, who is the voice of the giant Muppet. Watch it above.

“Maybe we should have done that Raymond Carver play!” he says, a reference to the play (What We Talk About When We Talk About Love) that Michael Keaton’s Birdman character directs, produces and stars in (“very ambitious!”).
