Cookie Monster in Apple ad outtakes
Cookie Monster may have been impatient in his iPhone 6 commercial in March, but the Sesame Street star’s sweet tooth is even more voracious in the bloopers from the ad, which Apple shared Friday.
In the behind-the-scenes footage, the fuzzy blue muppet stares intently at his iPhone as Siri counts down for his cookies to be done. When the timer goes off, he erupts into an overeager frenzy and subsequently mashes the sugary treats into his gaping mouth. The monster’s got jokes, too: when he settles into bed after a long day of baking, he smacks his lips and says, “Me wish me could close me eyes,” referring to the googly pair stuck wide open on his furry head.
From Tom Hiddleston to Ian McKellan, plenty of celebs have tried to teach Cookie the art of patience over the years, but he just can’t seem to grasp it, making him all the more adorable. Watch the outtakes below.
