Big Bird: Pissed at New Obama Campaign Ad!

by at . Comments

Sesame Street is far from happy with President Barack Obama's new campaign ad, saying he uses Big Bird to go after Mitt Romney without PBS' permission.

The Obama campaign released the above ad after last week's presidential debate, mocking challenger Romney's vow to fire Big Bird / cut off funding to PBS.

The ad portrays Big Bird as an enemy of America, a greed-monger arch-criminal towering over the likes of Bernie Madoff and Ken Lay. PBS? Not pleased.

Sesame Workshop released a statement saying, "We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down."

The show's creators say "Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns."

Obama's camp says they are reviewing SW's concerns as we speak.
