Sesame Street has united two of our favorite redheads!

In a new clip from the educational show, Christina Hendricks and Elmo team up to give kids a primer in technology. One by one, Hendricks explains how a laptop, a cell phone, a digital camera, a tablet and an e-reader are all forms of technology we use to make life easier.

Elmo’s contribution to the conversation? A backpack, which he points out also counts as technology.

And if you noticed that all the modern implements Hendricks, 40, shows off are things Joan Holloway would have never heard of, you’re right – Hendricks has chosen a very kid-friendly way to say goodbye to the typewriters and rotary phones of Mad Men.
