Good morning. Is your Friday going well? Mine, too. It wasn’t, until I watched this video of a jet engine blasting apart a Tickle-Me-Elmo doll for fun.
If there was one video that best described the internet, I think this would be it. At no other point in human history would anything remotely similar to this be a profitable venture than now. Even the stupidest shit in the world — like a guy disintegrating things with his personal jet engine — can be monetized and marketed to people all across the globe so they have something to do while they do nothing.
That being said, I still feel like this video is important, because no one, and I mean NO ONE, hates Tickle-Me-Elmo dolls more than me. When I was a little kid, my great aunt bought one of these for me, and I have never been so terrified of anything in my life. Who the hell thought children would like these? It ruined Sesame Street for me and I still can’t look at Elmo the same way anymore. So yeah, watching this thing go up in flames by way of a 2,500 horsepower jet engine is somewhat cathartic for me.
Fuck you, Tickle-Me-Elmo. Enjoy your long days in hell for all of eternity..
