THEY WERE A LIFETIME TOGETHER
And I’m not exactly an Elmo fan. At all.
My brain broke a little bit.
I believe that might have been the point.
Elmo is the Grover of our kids’ generation. Teaching kids to talk in the 3rd person for decades!
Also better than the original: Billy Joel & Marlee Matlin singing “Just The Way You Are” to Oscar the Grouch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHC3M7KL2ns
I’m pretty sure the world is a better place for having this in it.
Don’t judge me.
John, you’ve just guaranteed that Whatever will be one of the first sites killed by SOPA. :-(
OK, I listened to the first minute and a half, and if I’ve ever heard the original I can’t figure out what it is. Could someone enlighten me?
Xoper: got me…I was wondering that myself. Anyone? Anyone?
Mark Moskowitz: Maybe my brain’s spent too long in the gutter, but the yellow wig thing Oscar puts on around 2:36 in that video looks sorta like pubes with a phallus sticking out on top of Oscar’s head. Interesting reworking of the song, though.
If you don’t know the original consider yourself lucky :) It’s by a group called LMFAO, and I’ll leave it at that
That didn’t break my brain as badly as Elmo and Katy Perry, but it’s a close run thing.
And Jamie Foxx.
For those who are unacquainted with the original:
And until this moment, this was my favorite parody of the song:
(I had no idea putting the links in the post would automatically convert them into inline videos)
You know… Under SOPA or PIPA, you would be hosting infringing material. Say “Good Night and That’s All Folks!” to your site…
You WILL suffer for this… I promise! Boiled in ants! Covered in water! Beat with a steak! Fried at the horsewhip. I PROMISE you WILL suffer! GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
Just to prove how clueless I am, I thought that the “original” you were referring to was the Elmo song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSYadh2xmcI
Its my fault I suppose, but I now have an ear wig of this insanity.
I watched Elmo and the original Transdutch linked – by the time I got to the Jewish one, it was an almost overwhelming need to self destruct by watching.
This is why the internet is bad.
Wow ! Funny and almost ROFLMAO ! Thank you for this post. I have enjoyed your musings for quite a while now, and today I feel compelled to write to say “Thank You”.
My 4 year old loved it. My 14 year old watched and tried to be all “cool” but she gave up, cracked a smile and started signing along.
could. not. look. away.
He’s Santa and he knows it.
Like a fresh coat of paint, on a turd.
The LMFAO version cracks me up every time I hear it, I automatically picture the ‘wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle – yah’
Oh and now my 4 year old will be headed to school singing I’m elmo and I know it. *g*
“Better than the original version” is an absurdly low bar to get over. Elmo-height, one might say.
A group of air force cadets did a highly amusing parody of this song, too.
Aw, I love Elmo!
I liked it and I’m not a Seseme fan. I looked at it out of curiosity (and as someone who has the day off I have the time to). Haven’t watched the original yet…
I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t like it. It was fun. But…everyone’s different (as we all know – in good ways and bad and everything in between).
Maggie just finished her bath and is settled on the bed ready for a nap. She says hi. There’s a reason to worship cats. They deserve it.
Going the other direction from the LMFAO links, this is my favorite Elmo link. Like John, not necessarily a fan, but if you’re of a certain age you’ll probably like this. WARNING: This song WILL cause you to walk around humming it for at least a while.
I watch the original once in a while – because it always cracks me up. How anyone can fail to appreciate the humour of the original is beyond me.
Just to prove how clueless I am, I thought that the “original” you were referring to was the Elmo song.
I thought the same thing. Though to be fair, I may have heard the “Sexy and I Know It” and subsequently blocked it out.
Incidentally, I never noticed before, but I don’t think Snuffleupagus is firing on all cylinders. I know some old stoners that behave very similarly.
If you don’t like Elmo, you owe it to yourself to see the documentary “Being Elmo”. And if you do like Elmo, you really owe it to yourself to see the movie.
I thought at first that this was produced by the Sesame Street people. They should know better than to put an apostrophe in “Kids look at these crayons.”
