Ian McKellen meets Muppet Gandalf on Sesame Street

Earlier this week we enjoyed Sesame Street’s parody of Lord Of The Rings starring Cookie Monster and Muppet Gandalf, but did you know they also made a Vine with one of our favorite homies, Sir Ian McKellen?

Ian McKellen met his felt imitation, Muppet Gandalf, in front of Mr. Hooper’s store. (R.I.P. Hoopdubs.) McKellen knows how to gain entry into the store. Oh, is that all the Balrog had to do? Well, this is awkward.
