I could watch factory videos forever, as I am reminded when Unwrapped is on today. A couple months ago on YouTube I found the old Sesame Street video of how crayons are made that has stayed with so many of us since childhood. Do they still show this clip on Sesame Street? If I’m ever punished with having to watch one video clip over and over for all of eternity, I’d choose this one, and it’d be no punishment. There is nothing more perfect than brand new crayons. But I’m curious, has anyone ever found a better crayon than Crayola?
So I want there to be a factory internship program where factories around the country allow people like Clara and me to go work there for a week or a month or something, just for the experience. I might actually pay to be able to do this, especially if the music from this video played in the factory. Clara thinks there would be union issues. I’m sure someone out there can take care of this for us. In the mean time, get a factory fix from Mister Rogers’ picture picture.
In my obsessiveness I just now found this next video. I am freaking out. I probably haven’t seen it since age 5, but every so often I’m still compelled to sing, “me and my llama, goin to the dentist today-ay-ay-ay” but nobody else remembers this video from Sesame Street. See, I am not making it up! But where was this girl keeping a llama in NYC?
Oh man this opens up endless and dangerous possibilities. Maybe I can find that ramen factory video that I blame for my quest for the perfect Chinese noodle…
