Big Bird and Jason Schwartzman are about to go head to head on Lip Sync Battle, and we're sure it's going to be an episode to remember. But first, before what we imagine will be a fierce, competitive battle between man and muppet, the pair are sitting down to "pregame," and it's honestly the cutest thing we've ever seen.
In the "Lip Sync Battle Pre-Game" video, after playfully dangling their feet off the high stools they were perched on, Jason can be seen asking Big Bird some hard-hitting questions, like, "If you could be any letter of the alphabet, which would you be?" and "What do you do before you cross the street?" The questions may seem silly, but the pair's thoughtful answers and friendly banter are honestly so adorable, I've watched this video three times (mostly to relive their discussion of the letter "B" and to listen to Big Bird count to 10 . . . erm, 11). Oh, and they play a hilarious game of hide-and-seek, but spoiler alert: they're in a pretty empty room, and Big Bird isn't exactly the size of a hummingbird.
See the full pregame video above, which features some very special guests at the end, and get psyched to see Big Bird and Jason
sing lip-sync their hearts out on Thursday, May 30, at 10 p.m. ET.
