Grover isn’t the only one working blue on Sesame Street. A leaked clip of Julia Louis-Dreyfus swearing like a sailor on “Sesame Street” has blown up on the internet.
Social media is in a frenzy over the raucous resurfaced outtake in which the “Seinfeld” and “Veep” star dropped an epic S-bomb during a cameo on the classic children’s series. The cursed clip appeared to have been made in 1994 but suddenly went viral on Reddit and Twitter. Collect millions of new views from Sunday.
The 30-second blooper begins with the now 61-year-old TV icon sharing a scene with Muppet’s Elmo and Zoe. The take goes awry after Louis-Dreyfus says the wrong name and then lets out an audible “s–t” after realizing her mistake.
The sitcom star tries to apologize for firing the profanity, after which Elmo, staying in character, admits she “said a bad word” – and asked her for “$5” for the swear jar.
“You’re going to be a rich Muppet by the end of this day,” replies Louis-Dreyfus as he prepares to repeat the shot.
Needless to say, Redditors had a big day with the PG-13 rated outtake of the New Adventures of Old Christine actress.
“That’s worth its weight in gold, Jerry! Gold!” wrote one fan, referencing Steve Hytner’s immortal line from Seinfeld.
“Elmo shrugged off guest stars?” wondered another.
Others marveled at the Muppets’ method of acting between takes.
“I love that the Muppets keep their character BETWEEN takes!” exclaimed a Sesame Street die-hard. “Of course it makes perfect sense, but it’s pretty to look at. Really needs to help the guest feel part of the Sesame Street world.”
Another added, “I love it when Elmo goes unscripted.”
In 2018, another “Sesame Street” clip made waves online after Redditors claimed Grover said the F-word during a scene.
