VIDEO: Obama’s Latest Campaign Ad; f/ BIG BIRD

The Obama Reelection campaign just unleashed their latest campaign ad, and it features a very special guest.

Playing up Mitt Romney’s intention to defund PBS, the ad asserts that rather than dealing with the dangerous greed and corruption on Wall Street, Romney wants to police Sesame Street.

From Loop 21:

“The Obama campaign hopes to warn voters of a “big, yellow… menace to our economy.” Big Bird, that is. On Monday night, the president’s campaign release a new television ad mocking Mitt Romney’s promise to cut funds for the Public Broadcasting System, which has carried the beloved “Sesame Street” children’s program for more than four decades. “You would need to cut PBS more than 1,000 times to fill the hole in Romney’s budget promises!” said a statement announcing the release of the campaign ad.”

Check out the ad below:

UPDATE

According to Slate, Sesame Street has asked the Obama Campaign to take down their Big Bird ad, explaining that they are a non-partisan organization and do not participate in political campaigns.

From Slate:

Sesame Street is asking Obama to pull the ad: “Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.”

Thoughts on this ad?

Does the Obama Campaign have what it takes to recover from last week’s debate disaster?
