As Netflix prepares to gift us with another season of the evil Frank Underwood's machinations on House of Cards, Sesame Street paid tribute to the drama with their own version: House of Bricks.

Though House of Cards is a very adult show, Sesame Street's version riffed on the classic Three Little Pigs story, The Verge reports. Frank Underwolf (see what they did there?) affects Kevin Spacey's drawl and huffs, puffs and blows down the fourth wall in a devious monologue. He talks about how there's too much pork in this town, and bullies his way through the straw and stick homes. And, he teaches us math!
