WATCH: Christoph Waltz’s Dramatic Interpretation of the “Sesame Street” Theme Song Will Bring You to Tears
Give this man all the Oscars.
Though we were disappointed to not see his name on the final cast list for The Hateful Eight, Christoph Waltz is keeping very busy these days with roles in Tim Burton’s upcoming drama Big Eyes, David Yates’s star-studded Tarzan, and currently, Horrible Bosses 2. And amidst all this, it appears that the Austrian-born actor has not even fully tapped into the extent of his talents.
While visiting Jimmy Kimmel Live, Waltz professed his love for Sesame Street (or as he calls it, “Sesamstrasse”) and proceeded to treat the audience to a tear-jerking rendition of its classic theme song. Prepare yourself, because just the same as “Rocket Man” after Shatner had his way with it, you will never be able to hear the original the same way again.
Grab a tissue, and watch the clip below.
