Elmo seeks to be Olympic torchbearerJun-06-2012
"Sesame Street" Muppet Elmo has kicked off a campaign to be one of the torchbearers in the run-up to this summer's Olympic Games in London.
Elmo released a video online and an announcement on his Facebook page explaining his desire to run with the torch as it makes its way to the opening ceremonies of the Games, NBC's "Today" show reported Tuesday.
"He loves the fun of being an athlete," "Sesame Street" executive producer Carol-Lynn Parente told Today.com. "He's learned lots of things on Sesame Street about exercise being good for you."
Parente said Elmo would not accidentally leave the torch with a stranger, as he does in his campaign video.
