Elliott told BuzzFeed News that earlier in December, she went to a Christmas parade because her granddaughter was dancing in it. While there, she saw these characters coming down the road and "got a little excited."

"That was not just a put-on for me," Elliott said about her commentary.

"That's something that just is natural. I like to be a joyous, happy person," she said.

Her hype is mad contagious, and people lost it on Twitter after her video was uploaded. "Who let Dora get that lit?" one person asked.
