Bert And Ernie Living The Thugs Life

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.
