“Sunny Day. Sweepin’ the clouds away. On my way to where the air is sweet. Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?”
Perhaps, you might want to ask Zac Efron and a slew of other celebrities for directions on how to get there. “Sesame Street” just announced the names of celebrities appearing on the upcoming 43rd season of the long-running children’s educational show. The 24-year-old actor is set to make an appearance on the show’s “Word on the Street” segment. Efron’s word is “patience“, described on their site as, “When you (can) wait for something in a calm way.” Interesting. I wonder why they gave him that word. Perhaps Zac exhibits patience when coiffing that perfect hairdo. Not a single hair out of place.
Other celebrities helping kids expanding their vocabulary this season on “Sesame Street” include Melissa McCarthy, Jon Hamm, Kristen Bell, Joseph Gordon-Lefitt, Halle Berry, Eric Stonestreet, Wendy Williams, David Beckham, Maya Rudolph and many, many more. A couple of my favorite celeb-word pairings are Jay Mohr with “tool” and Samantha Harris with “reporter“. LOL. Don’t know why the latter makes me laugh, but it does. Check out all the stars and their associated words below.
David Beckham, Samantha Harris
Persistent & Reporter
