Well, last night the show reached its goal, which makes it the first nonprofit and U.S. children's media outlet to hit 1 billion. The "Top Secret" clip popped up shortly thereafter, and fittingly, it shows Count trying to illustrate what a huge number 1 billion is.
I'm not ashamed to say I'm a woman in her 30s who just watched the whole thing:
Congrats to Sesame Street, which is one of the few things on YouTube that actually deserves such a huge number of views!
