A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Cookie Monster and Siri’s Commercial

Do you know the best time to eat cookies? Trick question! Every time best time for cookies! Just like all the best commercials now seem to involve Sesame Street‘s Cookie Monster.

The funniest ad of 2016 thus far has been Apple‘s one touting its iPhone 6S timer, the commercial featuring a suffering Cookie Monster waiting for his fresh batch of cookies to finish baking in the oven, all while listening to Jim Croce’s “Time in a Bottle.”

Now Apple has brought us a “behind-the-scenes” look at the making of that amazing ad, which shows that eventually Cookie Monster did get to eat his cookies, and also that he is quite the trooper when it comes to a hard day on the set.

While the original commercial was located solely in the kitchen, here we get to see Cookie Monster celebrating the end of his long 14 minute wait before (apparently) throwing a party in the cookies honor. Not to mention there is a great sequence of him eating the cookies, highlighted by the shot of him sitting on the porch in all his glory. There is even a nighttime scene with Siri where he….you know what, that joke is too good for me to put it into text. Make sure you watch the whole video.

It’s hard to tell if this was originally the plan to have a second commercial with bonus scenes, or if they filmed all of them before just settling on the kitchen part for the first ad. Either way, we’re now going to need a documentary about the making of all of this, because Cookie Monster is the best.

What’s your favorite Cookie Monster memory? We want cookies…and your thoughts in the comments below.
