They are seriously playing the Sesame Street theme song at Obama event at OSU. They seriously think this is winning for them. Geeze.— Kathleen McKinley (@KatMcKinley) October 9, 2012
You read that correctly. A man who goes by “will.i.am” is DJing for the president’s campaign appearance at Ohio State University, and introduced the president with a remix of the Sesame Street theme.
The crowd either went wild, was confused or had “some reaction,” depending on the media outlet.
Conservatives online had “some reaction” as well.
Even Obama fans are getting a little tired of the Big Bird meme.
The Obama campaign apparently wasn’t listening to Sesame Workshop either, who earlier asked the campaign to take down its pitiful ad featuring Big Bird, saying that as “a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization” it does not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. Will.i.am is such a huge fan of Sesame Street, though, he’s ignoring their request.
Can someone please tell us how to get away from Sesame Street? Please?
