CUTE: Watch Tom Hiddleston explain to Cookie Monster the concept of “delayed gratification”

He may play a villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Hiddleston is an absolute charmer outside the silver screen (okay, fine. Even as Loki.)

In this short video, the 37-year-old British actor converses with one of Sesame Street’s most beloved characters, Cookie Monster. They playfully argue, of course, over a cookie.

With the concept of “delayed gratification”, Hiddleston shares to Cookie Monster how he can set aside to cookie in order to gain something more rewarding later on.

“So if you’re saying I’ll wait… I’m going to get cookie?” Cookie Monster asks.

“Ultimately, yes,” Hiddleston confirms.

We just can’t get enough cuteness from these two. Watch the video above to see it yourself!
