Elmo begged. He pleaded.
Then his wish was granted: Elmo met Adele.
The Sesame Street resident first laid the foundation for a meet-and-greet on Wednesday when he gave Adele a shoutout during a press appearance.
“Elmo loves you with all of Elmo’s heart. Elmo wants to sing ‘Rolling In The Deep’ with you. Wherever you are, Elmo will fly there. Call Elmo, thank you.”
Both he and the singer were in Australia this week, a serendipitous sign from the universe that a meeting was destined to be.
Adele is currently touring in Australia, performing shows across the continent for the first time in her career.
As for why Elmo was in Australia beyond a few press meetings, that’s private Muppet business. Seems like he had a good time, though.
