Gervais & Elmo Make Sweet, Sweet Music

It must be the time of year for charity hilarity, because just hours before Comic Relief’s big ol’ lovefest kicked off at the weekend, a video emerged of Ricky Gervais and ‘everyone’s favourite muppet’ Elmo (stop crying, Big Bird) teaming up to talk charity awareness.

Except they seem to have got a little lost along the way. Last we checked, raising money for ‘Necrophilia’ was not up there with Homelessness and AIDS orphans.

We at OTB were left more than a little heartbroken on Friday when we heard Sesame Street’s future was under threat of the recession, but at least the charity can always rely on stars of stage and screen to appear on the show free of charge.

The episode, which features Gervais singing a song (“Set your piggies free??!) to the muppets is set to air in November.
