This Year’s Hottest Toy!

I was thinking back to an old MadTV show I saw years ago back when Tickle Me Elmo was one of the hottest toys that every parent wanted to get for their young kids. I used to laugh at the fact parents felt the need to get their kids a specific “hot” toy and would turn into monsters just to get their hands on that toy. I saw it first hand in the years working for a major toy retailer. I saw everything from parents fighting, screaming, pushing each other, taking toys from other people’s shopping carts, etc. when new “hot” toys were released or on days like Black Friday. I got such a kick from MadTV’s parody of the Tickle Me Elmo and it still makes me laugh to this day.
