Well, well, well, I think Jon Hamm finally met the one person who’s not impressed with his finely chiseled jaw or his beautifully sculpted face or his wonderfully soulful eyes. And by person, I mean puppet. And by wonderfully soulful eyes, I mean…that thing we’re not supposed to talk about anymore.
The Mad Men actor recently dropped by Sesame Street to teach kids all about sculptures. While most people meet him and get on the first bus to Swoon City, Elmo doesn’t even look up from what he’s doing. Yes, he’s that self-involved that he barely acknowledges Jon Hamm’s presence on his street. If Jon Hamm even stepped foot in my neighborhood, I’d be ready and waiting for anything that could happen. It’s why I stuff my bra every day. You just never know when Jon Hamm will stroll by my street.
But not Elmo. He’s met far too many celebrities to be impressed by Jon Hamm. The guy should’ve stopped by before Melissa McCarthy danced with him or even before Joseph Gordon-Levitt taught everyone about what the word reinforce means. I think we’re at the point where God could make a cameo and teach everyone about Facebook etiquette and Elmo would be like, “I’m busy here kid, come back later.”
It’s a shame, because Jon Hamm’s not a man who should be conversed with so casually. He deserves eye contact and he deserves respect and he deserves to not be treated like some extra when he’s on Sesame Street.
