Maybe Ian McKellen should have brought his lesson about the word “resist” to Middle-earth before he delivered it to Cookie Monster.
The actor behind Gandalf and Magneto stopped by Sesame Street for a segment with Cookie Monster about how important being able to resist something is.
Unsurprisingly, Cookie has no issue resisting a particularly powerful ring, but when it comes to his signature treat? Things become a bit more difficult.
It’s a shame Gollum never learned the same lesson, otherwise all that mess with the One Ring and Mt. Doom could have probably been avoided.
