Elmo Makes A Pregnant Lady’s Day, Surely Gains a Future Fan

Elmo Monster and his little-known alter ego Kevin Clash have been making the press rounds this week in the promotion of their bio-pic Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey.  This video is from the premiere of the movie at the Sundance Film Festival, when Clash invited a pregnant festival attendee up on stage to meet Elmo.

You might want to bite down on something hard, because these levels of adorable have been known to cause seizures.

No matter what else happens in videos where you see the Muppeteers behind the Muppets, the best moment for me is always the split second where the puppet stops being a furry sock, and is suddenly a person.  It never ceases to amaze.
