Many of us growing up will remember Bert and Ernie, the friendly and cute characters from Sesame Street, as looking like the image above; but what if they had actually come from the wrong side of the tracks?
Well one such artist did wonder, and thanks to California-based Dan LuVisi we can now see what our childhood memories would have looked like as a couple of criminals.
Here is what Dan had to say about his creation.
Well here’s the story. I imagined Bert as a Marine who left his little brother behind for the Vietnam war. Over the years, Ernie started to turn into a junkie without his brother’s guidance, falling into the wrong crowd and dealing/using with the wrong people–thus making some very bad mistakes.
Until Bert returned, leaving one war, only to fight another for his brother.
Oh man, Ernie. What a psycho.
You’ll never look at Bert and Ernie the same again.
