    :lol: That's freakin' awesome! I wonder how that occured. It was probably some programming error or something, or maybe the dad secretly hates the kid...

    Elmo must slowly be taking over the world. Somehow, it all starts with James.

    When I once worked an overnight shift at Toys R' Us over Christmas, stocking shelves, one of the aisles had, on the top shelf, an entire row of some sort of Elmo doll gazing down at me as I worked.

    I don't think it was some "employee" or "glitch" or anything so simple. Elmo is evil, that is all.

    I gathered from the video that you're supposed to plug Elmo into a computer to program him with your kid's name and the like, so that Elmo knows what to say.

    So where's the mystery?? The kid's big brother got his hands on Elmo, plugged him into a PC, and reprogrammed him.

    What's funny is seeing the mother all freaked out about it. And I would love to see the customer service guys at Fisher Price laughing their asses off about this. :lol:
