Watch Elmo Do Government Propaganda!

November 20, 2012

Now that Elmo creator Kevin Clash has resigned due to an underage sex scandal, I thought I might peruse YouTube for Elmo videos to see if anything came across as particularly ironic. You’ll never guess what I found.

In December of 2010, Elmo visited the kitchen of the White House to promote Obama’s school lunch program. It was even featured on the White House blog.

As a Gen-Xer, I grew up on Sesame Street but that was a different time. I have no recollection of Grover or Kermit the Frog visiting the Reagan White House. Back then, Sesame Street wasn’t in the propaganda business.

Your taxes paid for this…
