A few years ago we had the pleasure of visiting Sesame Street. During our visit, puppeteer Kevin Clash—better known as Elmo—had a smile on his face the entire time, and was even gracious enough to film this video for you guys:

Now Clash is the subject of a documentary, called Being Elmo, which has already screened at places like Sundance. IndieWire calls it "a complete winner," that follows Clash's career from a young age. They warn: bring Kleenex. It will start showing at the IFC Center starting October 21st—check out the trailer below:
