Our beloved out & proud Neil Patrick Harris will be making an appearance on Sesame Street as a singing shoe fairy — I shit you not. In the meantime, I’m still trying to figure out the educational value of a shoe pixie that shoots crotch rings and sings about footwear.

The video and more info after the jump.
Hopefully the fairy of matching shoes
will fix this mess.

Just when you thought he couldn’t get any gayer, TowleRoad.com reported earlier today that Harris will be on the famous children’s show, dressed as a dapper mythical figure chanting about foot apparel. But, don’t call him a “shoe fairy”:

“Not the shoe fairy – the fairy shoe person. It’s quite a different connotation. I was asked by Sesame Street to be a part of a song and I just leapt at the opportunity. Jim Henson was the only person I ever wrote a fan letter to as a kid and I’m a wild fan of puppets and the Henson Company in general. They wrote a song, wanted me to sing it. There are all these different mythical characters this season. Sandra Oh plays another type of fairy that Abby Cadabra creates and so we got to do this big musical number with puppets and dancing. It was a great, great afternoon. It’s one demographic that I have yet to win over.”

Check out the video here.

Isn’t that fabulous?! Now just get the “fairy shoe person”, Bert and Ernie in the same episode and you’ve got yourself a veritable Sesame Street Pride march.
