That is adorable. I like that Ricky has given complete control over to Elmo, and he looks him in the eye while talking to him. He is clearly having the time of his life while doing this. This is the best Elmo thing I've ever seen.

That's what I like about Gervais: he seems constantly surprised, humbled, and thankful to have gotten where he is, and absolutely *thrilled* to be doing what he's doing.

That sort of sheer, infectious joy is rare, and heartwarming in itself. Add a puppeteer who's sharper than his character usually conveys, but no less humble and joyful than Gervais, and you have magic.

I don't much care for Elmo, but I'm impressed with Clash's ability to stay in character through this. I mean, he didn't always stay in the Elmo character, but when he broke I imagined it was the muppet that turned into a professional actor rather than Clash.

Yeah, that's a guy with some strong puppet-fu.

Also: Elmo plus holocaust jokes equals magnificence. Favorited.

Laughing and breaking in the voice is amazing.

That's the Muppet way of doing things. Jim Henson pretty much insisted on it, which is why guests love going on Sesame Street.

Dear sweet Jesus. Gervais makes even Elmo bearable.

What is Elmo anyway? A seal?

Elmo is a muppet.

Oh god, Ricky's laugh.

Not as good as cookie monster v. Martha Stewart

Only Gervais can poke Elmo and get away with it.

But you saw Elmo's "Poe Pesci" moment right then, right?

"You Fucking Motherfu--... okay, there's people present and you're a respected guy. I'm going to play it cool, THIS TIME."
