Sesame Street’s House of Cards Parody Might Be Even Better Than the Original

Aced it! In anticipation of House of Cards' season three release on Feb. 27, Sesame Street debuted House of Bricks, a near-perfect parody starring the nefarious Frank Underwolf, who's dead set on huffing and puffing his way into the "White Brick House."

The spoof — which features a "three little pigs" theme, natch — is a masterful sendup of the original Netflix series, from Frank Underwolf's Southern drawl and ornate gold ring to the use of visual text messages and fourth-wall-breaking narration.

"These [other houses] are just in my way," he snarls, a la Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood. "But not for long. Because in this town, you have to know which way the wind is blowin'. And right now, it's about to get very windy."

There's even a pun about pork-barrel politics involving the three little suit-wearing pigs. "Some people say there's too much pork in this town," Underwolf drawls. "I could not agree more."

Of course, in keeping with Sesame Street's educational theme, the whole thing is part of a subtraction lesson for kids. But let's be honest — this one's really for the adults.
