James Earl Jones Counts To Ten On Sesame Street (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In the video below, James Earl Jones counts to ten on Sesame Street.

It sounds simple enough, but this is no ordinary counting lesson. For each number, the prolific actor perhaps most familiarly known as the voice of Darth Vader in Star Wars, gives a distinct personality and innuendo. When he says "Five" or "Seven," for example, his face really seems to say "Five? Are you kidding me?" and "Seven. You've stepped into a trap, Mr. Bond."

Not unlike the Sesame Street video of Richard Pryor reciting the alphabet, James Earl Jones Counts to Ten may be kid-friendly, but only adults will get the full, absurdist effect. Watch it below:
