As soon as I saw that Cookie Monster (Sesame Street) was pitching to host Saturday Night Live (SNL), I couldn’t help but wonder… “Why didn’t I think of that?” And then I knew… I had thought of it. I just hadn’t done it. No, while I was busy preparing my video marketing SNL strategy, Cookie Monster was busy doing it.
I’m not being so hard on myself- I just know that the thing that really separates people in business, love and life- is the ability to “go for it”. And a lot of the time, just “going for it” is enough- plus Cookie is super talented, so he’s a total shoe-in! Bravo, Cookie Monster! May you be the first blue-furred character to EVER host Saturday Night Live! Move over Alec Baldwin and Justin Timberlake… there’s a new monster host in town.
PS: Oh- and Cookie, if you happen to talk with Lorne Michaels, could you slip him my demo reel? There’s a big box of cookies in it for ya!
