Internet darling and supervillain extraordinaire, Tom Hiddleston, hopped on over to Sesame Street to teach Cookie Monster the virtues of “delayed gra-ti-fi-ca-tion.”
I wonder if the producers of this segment knew how apt a metaphor this is for Tom Hiddleston fandom. To be clear my dear, rabid denizens of the internet, you are the drooling blue muppet and Hiddleston is that plate of cookies. And we all saw what happened to that plate.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the ferocity of adoration Tom Hiddleston has inspired, I’ll just leave you with this deconstruction of the above scene that some eagle-eyed internetter made. That’s right, we’re worshipping his hands now. Poor, poor delectable plate of cookies.
