Someone took the fur off a Tickle Me Elmo and it's the stuff of nightmares

By Jessica Pitocchi

You can’t unsee this.

If you know Elmo as that cute cuddly red thing from Sesame Street, prepare to have those precious memories shattered – because this is what a toy of the character looks like with no fur.

The Science Mobile Twitter account shared a video of a hairless Tickle Me Elmo being played with, much to the distress of users.

The Canada Science and Technology Museum jumped in to justify the barbaric actions by explaining: “It’s all in the name of science!”

It’s not clear what the purpose was exactly, but from the hashtags in the caption, it seems like it may have just been a little experiment in taking technology apart and tinkering with it.
