Aziz Ansari has established a precedent for being a bit ridiculous. From his turn as Parks and Recreation’s luxury-loving entrepreneur Tom Haverford, to his over-the-top standup alter ego Randy, Ansari is never one to shy away from the zaney.

That embrace of crazy costumes and far-fetched gags is precisely what makes the comedian the perfect person to explain Sesame Street’s Word of the Day. With the help of Grover, some stovepipe hats, and a few chicken suits, let Ansari teach your kids the true meaning of the word “ridiculous.”

While nothing can top the broadcast duo of John Oliver and Cookie Monster, these two come pretty darn close to tackling all things “very very silly.”
