Wow. President Obama's team really went there. They are using Big Bird in a new political ad against Mitt Romney. This ad is real and it is official.
Obama clearly was out-debated last week. Even if he did have his mind on getting his wife Michelle an anniversary gift like Saturday Night Live joked, he was not on his game. Romney made waves that night for his comments on Big Bird. Make no mistake, Romney won. But just to make sure Big Bird maybe has one more late night appearance in him, they used Big Bird with permission from PBS and Sesame Street.
If this was The Daily Show or Kimmel doing a fake ad, I would have found this hilarious. It being a real ad, I'm not so sure if it is that funny. This will get play and joked on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report and if they were the ones who made it, I would be impressed. Since it is his team however, not so much.
Hopefully Obama comes prepared for the next debate or his next political ad may feature Oscar The Grouch!-DocFB
