Interview with the Muppet Elmo

Browsing through Mashable.com earlier today, I found a lovely item that brought a touch of joy to my Monday. Fresh from his “controversial” duet with Katy Perry (and I saw no harm in it: Katy is Katy; Elmo is Elmo), Sesame Street used Google Moderator to sort through fans’ questions for Elmo, and then set up a YouTube interview with the furry little guy.

The resulting 20-minute interview is both adorable and touching, and it has accumulated more than 3.5 million views over the weekend.

Questions were asked by kids and adults alike, and they included standards like “What’s your favorite food?” along with “How do you actually get to Sesame Street?” and serious ones like, “How do you keep from getting sad when your daddy is away?”

I loved it.
