Missed Cookie Monster’s ragged voice from Sesame Street? If this is what brings you joy and you’re a driver then you’re in luck.
Cookie Monster is returning to read turn-by-turn directions on the navigation app Waze. He took a short hiatus after first showing off his navigational skills this summer.
It’s not just “om nom noms” and “me want cookies,” but honest driving directions to get you where you’re going. The friendly monster’s voice (and mood) is available in the voice and sound settings within the app starting Monday in honor of Cookie Monster’s birthday. (It was on Saturday — happy belated birthday, Cookie Monster!)
The voice option won’t be available forever, but when Cookie Monster was featured on the app before it was one of the most popular celebrity voices. Previous Sesame Street voice options from Elmo, Oscar the Grouch, and Cookie Monster were short-lived on Waze. Fans were so sad to see their favorite characters go, but that’s how the Waze cookie crumbles. There’s nothing like commuting with Elmo, Oscar, and Cookie Monster.
