Lessons from "Sesame Street" aren't just for kids -- they're even applicable to the adults battling for control of the Seven Kingdoms.

HBO released a "Game of Thrones"-themed "Sesame Street" video as part of the kids' show's 50th anniversary celebration campaign "Respect Brings Us Together." The spoof teaches a lesson about respect using well-known characters -- Elmo, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) -- and a lot of fans were into it.
