Viral Video: Jason Schwartzman’s ‘Iron Chef’ Spoof on Sesame Street

This video finally went all-the-way-viral yesterday, but I thought I’d save it for today, since weekends can be tough.

I ordinarily think of Jason Schwartzman as an actor of distinguished subtlety and nuance, but I’m going to have to rethink that stance. Schwartzman’s bedazzled, satin-gloved host (of a segment called “Cast Iron Cook”) is all flared nostrils and crazy eyes. And shouting!

But the costume is the best part, maybe! It’s such a good imitation of Chairman Kaga’s distinctive lamé cape! And did you notice the little veggie embellishments on Schwartzman’s brocade chest and collar? Ah! So cute!
