Watch Mindy Kaling Hang Out with Elmo on Sesame Street

The actress is enthusiastic about dancing with chickens.

Mindy Kaling can check one more thing off her bucket list.

The writer/actress/comedian recently appeared on Sesame Street to hang out with the one and only Elmo to learn all about the word of the day: enthusiastic.

Anyone familiar with Kaling’s characters from The Office and The Mindy Project know that this word is perfect for the bubbly starlet.

Example? Mindy Kaling is enthusiastic about dancing with chickens, which she and Elmo do in their Sesame Street bit (above).

Of course, the real Mindy Kaling probably prefers a different kind of dancing, specifically, Chris Messina doing a striptease on the season premiere of The Mindy Project:

Oh, yes, now we understand—enthusiastic. Thank you, Mindy Kaling.
