You’ve heard of St. Elmo’s Fire—now prepare yourself for Elmo on fire.
YouTube user PowerModz just so happens to have a truck and jet engine, so he decided to blast something with the fiery vortex of doom in a 2014 video once again making the rounds. Friend to millions of children Tickle Me Elmo faces the flames and of course suffers an untimely demise.
And if you’re just looking for the good stuff—as in when Elmo fully incinerates and his ashes blow into the wind—the lovely people at Imgur have already GIFed it for your viewing pleasure.
Seems PowerModz has something against the red puppet. In the video’s description, he writes, “I hate Elmo and he has it coming to him.” But what did Elmo ever do to him? What evils has the Sesame Street icon enacted upon this jet engine owner? Perhaps it’s better we don’t know.
For more Elmo destruction, be sure to check out this other PowerModz video where the puppet is annihilated by an ATV and snowblower.
