Here Is Cookie Monster Singing Tom Waits’ ‘God’s Away On Business’

Appropriately named YouTube user “CookieWaits” noticed that Tom Waits’ “God’s Away On Business” sounds a lot like it was sung by whoever does the voice for Cookie Monster on Sesame Street. He writes: “Tom Waits sometimes sounds eerily like Cookie Monster. Not that I mind! I happen to love Waits and his carnival barker’s growl!”

So he mashed together a bunch of Sesame Street clips and produced a video that, if you didn’t know any better, makes it really seem as though the song is actually a Cookie Monster joint. Well done mysterious CookieWaits. Well done. Almost as well done as this…
