Stick with this video for a Sesame Street surprise that is totally worth it:

Oscar the Grouch:

“How can anyone say it’s too expensive, huh? Aren’t they aware that according to a study in Environmental Health Perspectives, every dollar we spend on lead paint hazard control produces returns of at least 17 to 1?”

John Oliver:

“Wow, that is an incredible level of economic insight coming from someone who lives in a trash can.”

Let's sing!
