Children’s performer Jeramie Trespalacios dresses as Elmo for his job at a kid’s learning store. During his break, he went to a local music store to shop and was attacked by some random customer who apparently hates Sesame Street. Jeramie ended up throwing off his mask and breaking two of his attackers fingers. “It looks good for the kids. Elmo’s kicking butt,” he said.
While the story isn’t funny, the video is if only because the reporter tries to re-enact the scene (for some reason???) and takes a few jabs at Elmo’s eyeballs. Watch it, but don’t share with your kids.
