Larry David was forced to issue an apology on “Today” after he spontaneously attacked Elmo live on camera. The “Curb Your Enthusiasm” creator and the “Sesame Street” icon were separate interview guests on the NBC morning show, but they had a brief crossover moment when David crashed the set and groped Elmo’s face much to the horror of the “Today” hosts.

“Oh my god!” shrieked Savannah Guthrie as Hoda Kotb and Craig Melvin put their hands over their mouths in shock and horror. Guthrie added, “Larry, you’ve gone too far this time!”

“Let’s get back on the couch and talk about how you’re feeling,” Elmo told David, who fired back: “Somebody had to do it!”

Later during his sit-down interview with Guthrie and Kotb, David looked directly into the camera to issue an apology to the “Sesame Street” star.

“Elmo, I just want to be apologize,” David said while trying not to laugh. “I’m really sorry.”

“Thank you, Larry,” the “Sesame Street” character responded. “Elmo accepts your apology.”

It’s been quite the week for Elmo, who unexpectedly went viral on X (formerly Twitter) after asking his followers a simple question: “How is everybody doing?” The replies came flooding in and they were full of existential dread.

“Every morning, I cannot wait to go back to sleep. Every Monday, I cannot wait for Friday to come. Every single day and every single week for life,” one X user responded. Another follower replied: “Elmo I’m depressed and broke.”

“Wow! Elmo is glad he asked! Elmo learned that it is important to ask a friend how they are doing,” the character later posted in response to the anxiety-riddled responses. “Elmo will check in again soon, friends! Elmo loves you. #EmotionalWellBeing.”

David, meanwhile, is making the press rounds for the upcoming 12th and final season of his HBO comedy series “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

“It’s time,” he told Variety on the final season’s red carpet about ending the series. “Twelve seasons – that’s a lot for a television show – over 24 years. It was time. Yeah, I said [the show was ending] before. But I wasn’t 76 when I said it.”
