Our all-time favorite from Sesame Street, Elmo, recently uploaded a video interview on YouTube. This cuddly and cute character apparently became a hit this weekend with more than 3.5 million views.

Sesame Street, a popular kiddie program, recently used the Google Moderator to sort out questions for Elmo’s fans then uploaded it on YouTube. It is a 20-minute interview that is both cute and heartwarming. The video has accumulated more than 3.5 million views over the weekend.
