Lizzo, a trained flautist, was gifted a flute made of cookies by Sesame Street character Elmo for a skit on the US children’s TV show. But Cookie Monster soon swooped in, unable to resist the crunch.
“I’ve played a lot of instruments, but I’ve never played a cookie before,” Lizzo says in the clip after being handed the flute. “May I?” Elmo begins to dance to the tune before Cookie Monster gets his hands and mouth on the instrument snack.
“That was the one and only cookie flute,” Lizzo says after Cookie Monster’s greedy move. “I know, how can me not eat it? What an honour,” he responds. Watch below.
