WATCH: ‘Sesame Street’ Parodies ‘House of Cards’

Sesame Street’s” recent “House of Cards” parody proves that — even after 45 years — the show remains as relevant as ever.

The video stars a wolf puppet named Frank Underwolf in a mash-up of the Netflix series and the children’s story “The Three Little Pigs.” Underwolf teaches basic subtraction by blowing down the little pigs’ houses one by one. After huffing, and puffing and blowing the first two houses down with ease, only one more house remains: the white brick house. (Get it?)

Underwolf, using all of the Spacey-esque inflection he can muster, asks the pigs to let him in. Much like Spacey’s character, who by the end of “House of Cards'” second season (SPOILER ALERT) successfully manipulates his way into the Oval Office, the pigs leave the white brick house and Underwolf takes a seat inside, proclaiming, “Now the white brick house is mine. Finally, I get what I deserve.”

But Underwolf’s story doesn’t end there. The pigs turn the children’s tale trope on its head by huffing, and puffing and blowing down the white brick house, revealing that it wasn’t made of bricks at all. It was just a house of cards. Genius.

The third season of “House of Cards” is set to premiere on Feb. 27 on Netflix.
