There’s something extremely creepy– yet still undeniably killer cute– about this powerful Katy Perry / Elmo crossover.

I am a little disturbed at the heavy use of double entendre– a device that Katy Cocktease employs seemingly in every waking moment of her life…  But I’m also not enough of a killjoy to see how most kids will not understand the true meaning behind the song’s lyrics.

That written, like Jose Melendez (who kindly sent me this link)– I am also worried that PBS is turning a whole generation of youngsters into Katy Perry zombies and, well, that just sucks.

Still it’s all very cute and the song does beat the crap out of Katy’s latest, California Gurls.

Given Ms. Perry’s unnatural attraction to Russell Brand, I have to say I’m not surprised to find out she might also have a Furry Fetish.

“Elmo, are you ready to play dress up?”

Listen to Sheryl Crow’s fantastic Soak up the Sun

Now listen to Sheryl’s lovely Sesame Street Version:

Uh, did anybody over at the “Street” check the original lyrics that start this song?

“My friend the communist
Holds meetings in his RV
I can’t afford his gas
So I’m stuck here watching TV”

Wow! Talk about circumcising entertainment for the masses… ;-)

Although I do think the Sesame Street version is all kinds of AWESOME!
