Say what you will about Elmo, that's absolutely adorable.
It seemed very Grover-ish, if I say so myself.
Considering how sick everybody is of Elmo, I can't imagine he's going to get very much support.
Cookie got on SNL and Elmo's pretty much just as popular.
Cookie isn't nearly forced in people's faces as much as Elmo is.
I, personally, don't mind him or this campaign. Kevin clearly is the most readily-available performer they have, so if they can get anyone anywhere, it would be Elmo. I can't really see a character like Rosita or Abby (who seem equally available) doing something like this. Grover maybe (as I said, I got mad Grover-vibes from this video).
So far, SW's viral stuff has focused on Frank's characters (Smell Like a Monster, Cookie on SNL, Conversations with Bert) and not much Elmo, so if they want to give him something, I don't mind much.
Yea I kinda got that too. But it was cool all around.
I think it'd be cool if Elmo really was a torch bearer this year. I love watching Kevin perform.
That's about 3 people who felt Grover in that role, but with Grover, things usually end in disaster and exasperation. Elmo's usually ends in triumph. Available performer aside, Elmo is a character they want to see succeed because, well, if it were Grover, it would be funnier if he failed. Plus, there's that nagging popularity issue.
Still, you rarely do see Elmo in viral stuff. Elmo's always better when he's out of the confines of Sesame Street and can do something.
Put me up for having Grover doing something like this instead of Elmo.
Looks like Elmo's not going to get to go after all, the video's been made private.
Here's a video of Elmo announcing that he's going to with Abby & Grover.
Here's another video with Elmo and Team USA Gold Medalist Sarah Hughes discussing "persistence".
I can't wait to see more footage soon!
Man, they should release the "Worm Olympics" from the 90s on DVD to coincide with this moment.
Aw I love the first video. I wonder if they'll have little clips of Elmo, Grover, and Abby pop up during the Olympics
Yeah! Me, too!
