WOW! My Screen is heating up with these replies! Here is a quick over view off what I think off what you have all had to say!
You can't go wrong with burning.
Or stick some lady fingers in its mouth and light them. See if they blow off his head.
It'd be neat to cut out its eyes and put them on its lap and put ketchup or some red food coloring dribbling from its sockets, then take a picture. :)
Fire definatly was my first though, Since it would be melting and laughing and this would imply a long, long drawn out death. But different methos off bruning the elmo doll makes the difference.
Two words: LAWN MOWER
Why did I not think of that! The only probblem with that is electronic and other dangerous materiels may fly everywhere and if one off the blades hits something that conducts electricity. It may not end well. Still it sounds too cool to not at least see if it can go well.
Why not all of the above [except the fireworks as they'd be too hard to get here]
Burning is a great idea as the 'tickle' part may still work and it would just look freaky having it vibrate and make noise while looking like a horrible freak monster.
I love that idea! I just may be breaking fire violations! But I know how to contain the fire. And to be prepared as those fire safety adds suggest we do...
I like retrorussell's torture ideas. As a small added touch, though, you need to put an X on each eyeball. If you have a wide-bladed knife, you could even put ketchup on the side of the blade away from the camera and cut Elmo's throat, leaving a "bloody" gash.
I am loving these special effects ideas! Cause I take pride in the film quality off stuff that goes on youtube.
In one word: don't.
I like Elmo and all the Sesame Street characters.
I knew someone was going to say that! It had to be gotten over and done with! I think I may need to rate this video not to be viewed by viewers who love Elmo and seasame street.
first thing i thought of was wood chipper
For the first time in my life I wish I have a wood chipper!
Retrorussell has some awesome ideas!
Personally I would say put a little noose around it's neck and hang it from a tree. Have a nice opening shot panning up to the hanging elmo (bonus points if it's giggling), then someone with a ski mask and a baseball bat comes into frame. Then you have some fun with an elmo pinata.
Your friend will have a fun video, and some bashed up elmo remains.
I may need mexican music for that! a creative way to kill. Like propper snuff film maker,
We once took care of a certain purple dinosaur by embedding some explosive targets and then shooting them.
It was pretty impressive and got some strange looks at the shooting range.
Strange looks? More like looks off jelousy that they can not be that awesome!
butcher knife of course, and then burn it.
Maybe I can combine many more things!!!
Umm...I hate to bring it up but wouldn't any Elmo doll be fire-retardant, being a child's toy? Mind you, melting can be pretty impressive too - if he'll do that instead of flaming away.
I am always rather fond of the trebuchet option. But that might not suit your purposes in this case.
He would melt and not burn down the house. I say awesome!
A 12-gauge shotgun loaded with double-ought buckshot would be spectacular.
Only probblem is you can not get those in Australia
I would just run Elmo over....and over....and over.
What vechicle be best for that Though?
My car? A Ride on lawn Mower?
