Sesame Street: Sculpture with Jon Hamm (Word on the Street Podcast)


Hi. I’m Murray, from Sesame Street. And I’m looking for
the word on the street. What’s the word on the street? BOY: Sculpture. MURRAY: What is a sculpture? GIRL: It’s a type of art. BOY: It’s a piece of
art that you shape. WOMAN: It could be made
out of metal or rock. MURRAY: How would you
make it into a sculpture? GIRL: Carve it. MAN: Build a sculpture
with a hammer and nails. GIRL: And you can,
like, put it together into anything you want. MURRAY: Keep listening
for the word “sculpture,” today on Sesame Street. BOY: Sculpture. MURRAY: That’s the
word on the street. JON HAMM: Hi. I’m Jon. And this is– I said, I’m Jon. And this is– Elmo
you’re supposed to tell everyone who you are. ELMO: Oh, oh. Sorry– I’m sorry, Mr. Jon. Elmo can’t talk right now. Elmo’s busy making a sculpture. JON HAMM: Oh! Well that’s perfect,
Elmo, because today’s word is sculpture. ELMO: Oh, right. Sculpture. Oh, tell everyone what
a sculpture is, Mr. Jon! JON HAMM: OK. I can do that. A sculpture is a
piece of art that’s made by shaping or
carving something, or by putting things together. As you can see, Elmo is
carving his structure with a hammer and chisel. Elmo, why don’t you show
everyone your sculpture? JON HAMM: Oh, oh. Elmo’s not done right now. Maybe– maybe Mr. Jon can
show some other sculpture while Elmo finishes. JON HAMM: Other sculptures. Uh– right. I’ll go find some
other sculptures. [GRUNTING] OK, I got one! This sculpture is made out of
something totally different. This sculpture is made
out of pieces of metal. Very, very heavy metal. Can we please show your
sculpture now, Elmo? Please? Before I get a hernia. ELMO: No. JON HAMM: No. No. Wha– whoa! [CRASH] ELMO: There! Now Elmo can show his sculpture! JON HAMM: Oh, thank goodness. Thank goodness, Elmo. ELMO: OK. JON HAMM: Let’s
