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.

“I’ve Gotta Feeling” – Editing to Music

This YouTube video was posted on my Facebook page today and I think it’s one of the most original and funny approaches to the concept of writing and editing. The song used is the Black-Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling”, a catchy tune that is ripe for parody.

The lady in question is Jen Hayley and her website is http://www.jenhayley.com.

Is this genius or what? Credit goes to MJ Delaney and team for creating this masterpiece of music parody. In a very small space of time, this video went viral and enjoyed the spotlight on Sky News. I hope you enjoyed both – but I know which one is my favourite.
