Cuteness is a major marketing tool in many cultures. This is most famously the case in Japan, where cuteness is a national obsession known as kawaisa. Of course, cuteness is also an important selling point in the West. Elmo, The Family Circus, Furby, Precious Moments, and many other cultural icons and products trade on their cuteness—not to mention the overwhelming international success of Japanese exports like Pokémon or Hello Kitty. It can be a factor in live action productions such as the successful documentary film, March of the Penguins, where the intense cuteness of the penguins was cited as a major reason for the film's outstanding appeal. This technique was repeated in the computer-animated film Happy Feet as well as the Honey, I Shrunk The Kids trilogy, the Three Men and a Baby duology, and elements of One Good Cop.
Have a sneekpeek on the hotest toy in town. Watch him how he laughs. It is hilarious.
A cool video I made with my little sister. I do not own any part of elmo, sesame street, or any of the pictures in my slideshow. We had lots of fun making this and i hope you enjoy it too!
A very nice song sung by Elmo.
From 1997. Elmo tells the Goo Goo Dolls what he can do on his own in song.
This is a spoof of "V for Vendetta" starring all of your favorite Sesame Street characters including Oscar the Grouch, Bert and Ernie, Elmo, and the Cookie Monster. They are all searching for a perfect snack - the cookie.
This is a short video promoting the new tickle me emo. This was made for Delta Flight for fun. Enjoy! And just an FYI, there is another video floating around that has the same title which MadTV did. The creators, I and Gus, and the idea Randy were not in any way taken from this video. After getting the idea and writing out a brief script, we decided to start googling for elmo pics and typed tickle me elmo. It was at this point we saw there video. Just wanted to clarify that upfront.

Be sure to watch "Elmo as Borat" too

Just like when you slide your feet on a carpet to generate friction and then touch a door handle to create a spark. The airplane fuselage slide through the air generating friction against the air molecules, then static discharge appear thousand times stronger than the one from the door knob. These are very impressive.
St. Elmo's Fire is an electrical weather phenomenon in which luminous plasma is created by a coronal discharge originating from a grounded object in an atmospheric electric field (such as those generated by thunderstorms or thunderstorms created by a volcanic explosion).
During thunderstorms large electric fields build up between clouds and the earth. These electric fields are most intense at the tops of pointed objects. The fields may be so strong that they excite (or ionize) the air molecules. When excited molecules release their energy, it may be in the form of visible light. So the air near tops of buildings or the tops of boat masts start to glow. This phenomenon was given the name St. Elmo's fire by sailors, who incorrectly believed that the Saint was protecting them from lightning strikes. In point of fact the appearance of St. Elmo's fire may well be a prelude to a strike.
Physically, St. Elmo's Fire is a bright blue or violet glow, appearing like fire in some circumstances, from tall, sharply pointed structures such as lightning rods, masts, spires and chimneys, and on aircraft wings or windshield. Often accompanying the glow is a distinct hissing or buzzing sound.
Nice toy, even your dog like it....
Tickle Me Elmo is a childrens' toy from Tyco, introduced in the United States in 1996, becoming that year's top fad. Bright red in color and based on Elmo, a Muppet character from Sesame Street, when squeezed, Elmo would chortle. When squeezed three times in a row, Elmo would begin to shake and laugh hysterically. This toy was extremely popular back in 1996, this was called a media frenzy.In 1996, the Tickle Me Elmo was the "Must Have" toy. Many parents literally fought other parents in North American toy stores to purchase one of the toys for Christmas. The short supply of the toy, due to unexpected demand, meant that stores hiked the price on the dolls drastically. Newspaper classifieds even sold the plush toy for hundreds of U.S. dollars. People reports that the US$28.99 toy fetched as much as $1500.
