A video posted on YouTube went viral after showing how the power of a jet engine can vaporize a Tickle Me Elmo toy.

The host of PowerModz’s YouTube channel said they shoot product reviews, outdoor excursions, power sports events and more. Before this video, he said he was going to see what happened to a stuffed Elmo after it was secured to a pole and torched behind a jet engine.

The host comically explained his annoyance of the Elmo toy stems from his children and that might have provoked him to choose this particular toy.

In the video, the toy quickly turns to ashes at the mercy of the heat.  The powerful engine crumbles the toy to a pulp, melting the furry friend to the core.
