Watch as Sir Ian McKellen attempts to teach Cookie Monster what "resist" means. He tries to explain it abstractly, then with a golden ring, and then finally takes out a cookie to show the concept of control. As you might expect, this doesn't go over very well.

I feel you, Cookie Monster. I might be able to resist buying a golden ring, but holiday cookies or a perfectly chewy chocolate chip cookie? Forget about it.
