Justin Bieber Tries To Measure Up As A Sesame Street Puppet With Elmo

Submitted by on September 24, 2011 – 1:30 pm2 Comments

Justin Bieber is already an international pop star, a teen hearthrobe and a hairstylist’s dream, but now the 17-year-old Canadian is adding puppet master to the list.

For the premier of their 42nd season on September 26, Sesame Street debuted a lavender felt Justin puppet fashioned in a leather jacket, with dog tags and Bieb’s signature coif. The bang-whipping dopplehanger duets with Elmo on a song called “Measure, Yeah, Measure” which sounds a lot like Justin’s hit track “Never Say Never on The Karate Kid soundtrack.

Stressing the importance of rulers, scales and tablespoons, puppet Justin measures a jumbo shrimp and weights an elephant, while singing in a much deeper voice than the real Justin. Beliebers won’t mind, however, he still sounds as adorable as the real thing.

Mid-song, Elmo possibly puts Justin’s original duet partner, Jaden Smith, to shame with a little mid-song rap break, bouncing around the studio in a cool leather jacket, chef’s jacket and construction worker’s hard hat. Clearly he’s a puppet of many talents.

Check out the puppets in the studio below and Justin and Jaden in the video for “Never Say Never” and join just in saying “Happy Birthday” Jim Henson, the famous Sesame Street puppeteer (today would have been his 75th birthday). Does “Measure, Yeah, Measure” measure up to the original?
