If anyone is going to get Tyrion and Cersei to get along, it's our red friend (and we're not talking about Melisandre)

Respect is coming...
Respect is coming...

Binge-watching 12 hours straight of television before the sun comes out is great, but the kids of today will never know the sheer torture of waiting an entire week for a new episode to air, and the pleasure of eventually knowing what Walter White will do next or if Ross will finally end up with Rachel. For many parents who happen to be Game of Thrones fans but are no longer used to waiting a week for the next episode, this wait is unbearable.

So trust us when we say we too have struggled to put the kids to bed and didn't make the 3am broadcast on Mnet.

But while you wait, here's a Game of Thrones clip you can enjoy WITH THE KIDS as it features one of TV’s most beloved families, intervening in a squabble between TV's most problematic family, The Lannisters. We give you, as part of their “Respect Brings Us Together” campaign, Sesame Street: Respect is Coming... Get it?

Just when Cersei’s about to bite Tyrion’s head off, in comes first of his name, “Elmo of Sesame Street”.  

“Elmo thinks that you two need to respect each other,” he says. “When Elmo has a problem with friends like Abby or Cookie Monster, Elmo doesn’t get upset. Elmo listens and learns from what they have to say.” 

Tyrion comes to the realisation that if they work together, they can be stronger, and Cersei agrees to try. 

Ah, we knew that if anyone could bring these two together, it would be our favourite red friend.
