Ed Sheeran has teamed up with Elmo, Grover and Cookie Monster to perform a catchy song on Sesame Street that teaches children how to behave at school.

The 24-year-old singer made his debut on the popular children’s TV show yesterday, when bosses finally revealed the video for “Two Different Worlds” with fans.

Sheeran shot his appearance with everybody’s favourite puppets back in late 2013, when he posted some cute photos of their jam session on Instagram.

The upbeat two-and-a-half minute clip explains how it is necessary to adhere to a different set of rules at school than children may be used to at home, with lyrics including: “At home I can speak whenever I please/ I can talk real loud and shoot the breeze/ At school I raise my hand in the air when there’s something I want to share.”

Sheeran, best known for his bestselling album x, shared the video with his 13.1 million Twitter followers and was met with delighted responses.

“The Ed Sheeran song is one we were really excited about because that particular curriculum focus is important for kids - to learn that there are two different worlds,” executive producer Carol-Lynn Parenta told Billboard in a behind-the-scenes video from the time of filming.

“They have rules that apply when you’re home that are very different when they enter school. This is a wonderful song that can help bridge that transition.”
