  • Elmo: A lot?

  • Chris: A whole lot of questions.

  • Elmo: Wow.

  • Chris: In fact, questions came

  • using this platform called Moderator on YouTube.

  • Now, the public voted on which questions they liked the most,

  • and those are the questions I'm going to be asking you today.

  • Elmo: Oh, that sounds cool.

  • Chris: It is cool. Hey, check it out.

  • Elmo: From all over the world?

  • Elmo: Are you gonna tell us

  • about what you did in the shower?

  • Chris: Well, yeah. Well, one thing, other than washing.

  • Um, hey, true story.

  • Elmo: Okay, go ahead.

  • Chris: I was thinking to myself

  • that since I'm gonna be the one asking you questions--

  • Elmo: Yes?

  • Chris: Uh, I'm kind of the moderator for Moderator.

  • Elmo: Ha ha ha ha! That's funny, Chris.

  • Chris: It's not.

  • Elmo: Elmo didn't get it.

  • Chris: Neither did I. I was hoping.

  • Okay, why don't we get to the questions?

  • Elmo: Oh, okay.

  • Chris: There we go. All right.

  • Okay, the first question is...

  • Elmo: Hmm?

  • Chris: "Hi Elmo,

  • "I was just wondering what your favorite thing to do is!

  • Thanks!"

  • That's from MezzoGirl101.

  • Elmo: MezzoGirl101.

  • Hi, MezzoGirl101.

  • What--what was that?

  • What Elmo likes to do?

  • Chris: Yes. What's your favorite thing to do?

  • Elmo: My first favorite thing to do...

  • Chris: Yes?

  • Elmo: Um, Elmo loves to have play dates

  • with all his friends.

  • Chris: Yeah, yeah.

  • Elmo: And also feed Dorothy too.

  • Chris: Ah, feed Dorothy. That's a--okay, that's really--

  • Elmo: She always gets so happy. Ha ha ha!

  • Chris: You get happy too, buddy.

  • Elmo: Yeah.

  • Chris: Okay, what's our next question?

  • "Hey Elmo." Okay, this comes from dophino22.

  • "Hey Elmo."

  • Elmo: Hello, dophino22.

  • Okay, go ahead, Chris.

  • Chris: Okay, good.

  • "Hey Elmo, I was wondering,

  • how long did it take you to crayon your whole apartment?"

  • Elmo: Ha ha ha ha! Hey, that's a good question.

  • It took Elmo 2 1/2 weeks.

  • Chris: Yeah, he wasn't the only one, too.

  • Elmo: Yeah, because Elmo had some help.

  • Chris: Mm-hmm. Messed up--

  • Elmo: From all of his friends on Sesame Street.

  • Chris: I messed up my jeans a couple times,

  • but it's okay, it's okay.

  • Elmo: With a crayon?

  • Chris: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, you'd be surprised.

  • I can mess up pretty much anything.

  • Uh, what's our next question?

  • Okay, this one is, "What would you do

  • if you woke up and were suddenly purple?"

  • Eh!

  • Elmo: Purple? Who is that from?

  • Chris: That is from mbsegurae.

  • I hope I got that right.

  • Elmo: mbsegurae. Elmo hopes so too.

  • Ha ha ha ha!

  • So what-- what would Elmo do

  • if he woke up and he was purple?

  • Chris: Mm-hmm.

  • Elmo: Hmm. Elmo doesn't know.

  • Elmo--Elmo would be kind of scared and concerned,

  • because Elmo likes being red.

  • Chris: Really?

  • I would think it was just you

  • holding your breath for a really long time, like...

  • Elmo: No, that's a really long time.

  • Chris: Yeah, it's too long.

  • Elmo: But Elmo would talk to Elmo's mommy and daddy

  • and ask them why,

  • and hopefully, they would have an answer.

  • Chris: Okay, all right. That's a good answer, buddy.

  • I like that. Okay.

  • Elmo: Thank you.

  • Chris: Let's check out the next question.

  • Daniel: Hi, Elmo. My name is Daniel.

  • Elmo: Hi, Daniel!

  • Daniel: And this is Olivia.

  • And we wanted to know,

  • how do you actually get to Sesame Street?

  • Chris: That is a good question.

  • How do you actually get to Sesame Street?

  • Hello, Olivia.

  • Elmo: Well, you could take a plane.

  • Chris: Mm-hmm.

  • Elmo: And then you could take a bus.

  • Chris: Mm-hmm.

  • Elmo: And the subway.

  • And then, hopefully, you'd get there then.

  • Chris: Yes, yeah, okay. Very good, buddy.

  • Have you ever gotten lost on your way to Sesame Street?

  • Elmo: Well, no, because Elmo lives on Sesame Street,

  • and if Elmo went anywhere,

  • his mommy or his daddy or a grownup would take him.

  • Chris: Good answer, buddy. Good answer.

  • Okay, let's check out the next question.

  • Okay, this is--

  • Elmo: Wow, this is a long one.

  • Chris: Yeah, this is from Oliver in Germany.

  • Elmo: Oh! Hello, Oliver in Germany!

  • Chris: "Hi Elmo, my name is Oliver.

  • My daddy is in the military and is deployed right now."

  • Elmo: Oh.

  • Chris: "I know your daddy has deployed too,

  • "and I was just wondering what you do

  • to stay happy when your daddy is gone?"

  • Good question.

  • Elmo: Well, one thing that Elmo does is,

  • Elmo looks at the same moon that Elmo's daddy does

  • at the same time.

  • And that's when we think about each other.

  • Yeah, and then, sometimes,

  • we get to see each other on the computer

  • and say hello.

  • And then Elmo sends him pictures of Elmo

  • and the things that he's doing.

  • So, we keep in contact that way,

  • and that makes both of us feel so much better.

  • Chris: That was a really good answer, Elmo.

  • Elmo: Why, thank you.

  • Chris: Do you ever show him pictures of us?

  • Elmo: Of you?

  • Chris: Yeah, well, me and everyone else on Sesame Street.

  • Elmo: Yeah, Elmo will do that next time.

  • Chris: Okay, okay. All right.

  • Please tell him I say hi when you talk to him again, okay?

  • Elmo: Okay.

  • Chris: Awesome. Okay. What's the next question?

  • "Hi Elmo!

  • "How much does a house cost on Sesame Street,

  • because I want to move in."

  • How much does a house cost?

  • Elmo: Wait, who is that from?

  • Chris: That is from MyJKProductions.

  • Elmo: Hello, MyJKProductions!

  • So you want to move in to Sesame Street.
