Being Elmo, a documentary about puppeteer Kevin Clash, premiered at Sundance this week. This video of Clash, Elmo, and a pregnant fan sums up the enduring wonder of Muppets in general, and the specific joyous charms of Elmo in particular: Even though you can see Clash putting the Elmo puppet on, it still really feels like Elmo is a sentient — and deeply loving — being. Is it dusty in here? There’s… something in my eye…

So sweet it hurts, PopWatchers.
