WATCH: Sesame Street take on Game of Thrones in parody video

Our favourite Sesame Street characters are back for 'Game of Chairs' - a tongue-in-cheek nod to Game of Thrones.

Chances are that the Game of Thrones references in this video will be lost on its underage viewers - but it’s sure to give their parents a laugh.

There are plenty of references that only fans of the show will understand, such as Grover telling Joffrey he "looks like he choked" when he is eliminated from the game.

There's also nonchalant references to “Neddy baby” and "mommy of dragons" that will go down well with avid watchers of GOT.

Just last week, Ed Sheeran made his Sesame Street debut singing a song aimed at teaching children how to make the transition from home to school.

“The Ed Sheeran song is one we were really excited about because that particular curriculum focus is important for kids - to learn that there are two different worlds,” executive producer Carol-Lynn Parenta told Billboard in a behind-the-scenes video from the time of filming.

“They have rules that apply when you’re home that are very different when they enter school. This is a wonderful song that can help bridge that transition.”

Ed filmed the video way back in 2013.  Check it out, as well as a behind the scenes video, below:
