The third season of House of Cards, Netflix’s successful political drama series will be released in full this Friday. With just a few days to go, Sesame Street, another pop-culture institution, has made an educational parody of the show. In the short film, we see ‘Frank Underwoolf’ – with a Southern drawl of which Kevin Spacey (who won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama series) would be jealous – intent on getting himself into the White Brick House that is inhabited by a piglet. Huffing and puffing through all the other Washington houses, this parody manages to reference the show without all of the intrigue, sex, and death that is featured in the original. Sesame Street is a kids show after all. Complete with Frank Underwood’s sovereign ring and the threatening texts he sends to those he wants to intimidate, Mr. Underwoolf eventually makes it into the White House. But, as we expect from the upcoming season, the piggies will try anything to trick him and bring down his precious house.
House of Cards will be on Netflix Friday 27th February. Read More
