Fresh off his 'risque' encounter with Katy Perry on Sesame Street, Elmo was brutally attacked while in a Winter Park, FL Guitar Store. Word on the scene is that Elmo defended himself brilliantly with moves he picked up having to fend for himself as the littlest kid in Pre-school, "I have a black-belt in Karate. I had to do something to stop the other kids from tickling me all the time."
Here Elmo recreates his defense with help from Tyra Banks and the Kung Fu Cookie Monster.
According to reports from the scene, Elmo was on a break and checking out some guitars when another customer in the store perceived Elmo as a threat. Police reported that it was a very violent fight with Elmo breaking two fingers on the assailant.
