Even though I'm a big fan of the Muppets and everything Jim Henson ever created that saccharin cute little guy Elmo has always bothered me, and his "Elmo think glass is always full!" version of optimism makes me gag.
So for me it's delightful to see bad things happen to Elmo toys, and ever since those annoying Tickle Me Elmo dolls came out many people have come to feel the same way about Elmo as I do.
And the folks behind Will It Last? were happy to show their dislike by destroying a plush Elmo in a horrific way- by dumping sulfuric acid on him so they can have the last laugh while Elmo's whole body melts into a pile of goo.
