“Sesame Street” has not released the full video of the bit, unfortunately. But even a short tidbit is certain to get the tweens and their precocious younger siblings excited about the alphabet, set to the tune of 1D’s hit “What Makes You [or U, in this case] Beautiful.”
Granted, the One Direction boys don’t exactly come up with the most obvious “U” words in this clip — unless you go with “uh” and “udon” (as in the Asian noodles). Who cares, though? They’re cute, and so is the Muppet U. That’s all that really matters.
