This is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long, long time. It’s no wonder we’re all just slightly off. I can only hope that, while visiting NYC someday, Simone doesn’t run into the guy who walks around dressed up like a chicken and decide to beat him sensless for reasons probably unknown to her.
Tho, after spending a week in Georgia last year and hearing Elmo scream this song over and over again for Toby’s nephew, I had a similar reaction to this damn doll.
My friends and former colleagues have the dubious distinction of managing the Fisher-Price website (which I did for years). You can’t imagine what work was like when THIS was being put together. We all felt like your niece. Talk about a hostile work environment!
Oh my. I just busted up laughing picturing a bunch of you working towards making that site go live all the while having that same horrified look on your face. You know, like that first look Simone has, where she quacks or bleats or does her best to say “TURN THIS BLOODY THING OFF! WHY IS HE SCREAMING AT ME!!” Babies are funny. They probably think we’re all totally insane. It’s no wonder people grow up with a sense of humor.
When I first watched it, I thought, “Simone is sort of flapping her arms. She’s entertaining the possibility of doing the chicken dance.” But in reality, she was probably just crapping her pants in terror.
Oh my god, make Hokey Pokey Elmo stop. For real. Make it stop. I would’ve quit, GotJesus.
Simone is so funny.
Simone will be referring back to this movie with her therapist someday, you know!
