Sesame Street has made a must-watch House of Cards spoof

Sesame Street has a habit of turning very adult shows into lessons for the preschool set (see Birdwalk EmpireHomelamb) and their latest creation, "House of Bricks" — a House-of-Cards-style retelling of the story of the Three Little Pigs — is spot-on.

The timing is especially perfect on this one — Netflix releases Season Three of House of Cards on February 27th. And the video gets so many of the details of House of Cards just right, like the time-lapse theme sequence, Frank drawling platitudes into the camera ("Some people say there's too much pork in this town — I could not agree more."), and even the text messages popping up on-screen.

Watch it and get your fix (and a counting lesson) while you wait for the new season.
