If we’ve learned one thing over the past few months, it is to never doubt the power of Big Bird. First, the large awkward Sesame Street character ruined the presidential ambitions of Mitt Romney. Now, his brief video bomb may have ended the protracted NHL labor fuss.

It happened on Saturday, when Sportsnet’s Ian Mendes and Michael Grange were reporting on the 111th day of the lockout, when … Muppet video bomb! Big Bird walked by and made the moment his own. Behold below!


Then magically, hours later, lockout over! Big Bird’s powers are truly wondrous to behold.
