Ed Sheeran is fronting a new band, and among its members are Elmo, the Cookie Monster, and Grover. Yes, it’s April Fool’s Day. No, your eyes do not deceive you. That is most definitely Ed Sheeran in that Sesame Street music video for “Two Different Worlds,” and no, we’re not surprised he did such a thing because he has a heart of gold, so of course Sesame Street would want him to sing and play guitar in one of their videos.
Sheeran supposedly filmed this a while ago. How long exactly? We’re not sure, but thank Sesame Street that it’s finally been released.
Filmed that a long time ago, happy it’s finally out

Sheeran lives in “Two Different Worlds,” and despite what the video for the song wants to tell you, these two worlds are (1) Earth and (2) Heaven. We know this because Sheeran is far too saintly to exist solely amongst us doomed mortals and yet, like some sort of God-send, he does.
Watch Sheeran serenade kiddies in the YouTube clip, and hear him perform “Thinking Out Loud” live at VH1 Storytellers.
