So Katy Perry‘s bazoongas were too intense for Sesame Street to actually show on their program, and her duet “Hot & Cold” with Elmo was nixed. Because if there’s one things that kids who are barely past the age of breast-feeding should be kept way from, it’s a woman’s cleavage. Neil Patrick Harris playing a fairy though…no, don’t worry. They won’t get that the subtext. Or WTF is with this True Blood parody, which includes a terrifying opening very similar to the original? (Both videos below, and an official statement from Sesame Street.
The official statement from Sesame Street‘s Workshop:
“Sesame Street has a long history of working with celebrities across all genres, including athletes, actors, musicians and artists. Sesame Street has always been written on two levels, for the child and adult. We use parodies and celebrity segments to interest adults in the show because we know that a child learns best when co-viewing with a parent or care-giver. We also value our viewer’s opinions and particularly those of parents. In light of the feedback we’ve received on the Katy Perry music video which was released on You Tube only, we have decided we will not air the segment on the television broadcast of Sesame Street, which is aimed at preschoolers. Katy Perry fans will still be able to view the video on You Tube.”
But this is okay:
It’s funny, even in this parody Bill is an asshole and Sookie is stupid as hell.
