Sesame Street is no stranger to creating parodies based on popular shows and movies such as Game of Thrones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Homeland, Star Wars, and Sons of Anarchy. Their latest parody is based on Orange is the New Black (OITNB) which just released its season 5 this past Friday on June 9.
The OITNB parody Orange is the New Snack includes some popular characters from the show. We start with Piper Snackman who joins a new group of students at Litchfield Academy. She comments on their “interesting” uniforms and gets acquainted with her new classmates. There is Lorna Morello, who becomes infatuated with her pretend boyfriend Christopher. Red, the class Russian snack monitor who is in charge of handing out the cookies, and lastly, Googly Eyes who offers a seat next to her.
During snack time, Piper refuses Red’s cookies since she has brought her own healthy snack, an orange. She convince everyone that the orange is better than their regular cookie snacks. The revelation has Red declaring, “Orange is the new SNACK!”
Watch the hilarious parody bring the inmates to the classroom from Litchfield Penitentiary to Litchfield Academy! Don’t miss the opening credits which is spot on!
