If you can't wait until Friday to binge-watch the third season of "House of Cards" on Netflix, "Sesame Street" has just the thing to tide you over.

Welcome to "House of Bricks," a spoof starring the Three Little Pigs and a nefarious character named Frank Underwolf (who sounds an awful lot like Kevin Spacey).

"Sesame Street" parodies Netflix's "House of Cards" in "House of Bricks."

In the video posted Monday on YouTube, the wolf huffs and puffs his way to the White (Brick) House with a devious deadpan, channeling Spacey's Machiavellian politician Frank Underwood. True to Spacey's "House of Cards" character, Underwolf not only levels a few foundations, he also breaks the fourth wall with a Southern drawl.

"Some people say there's too much pork in this town," says Underwolf to the camera, as he approaches the house made of straw. "I could not agree more."

As always, "Sesame Street" earns bonus points for nuanced details. Wrapped around Underwolf's finger is a bulky class ring, whose "House of Cards" counterpart has made some noise throughout the Netflix series.

The new season of "House of Cards" will be released Friday. (For real, this time.)
