Obama Campaign Ad Starring Unlikely Celebrity

The unlikely star of last week's presidential debate is now starring in an ad from President Obama's campaign, and Sesame Street is not happy with it.

The spot was released today.

It sarcastically casts Big Bird as a corporate fiend along the lines of Bernie Madoff and Kenneth Lay.

The campaign says it will air on national broadcast and cable networks.

Sesame Workshop wants the ad removed saying in a statement today it has not approved any campaign ads.

An Obama campaign official says they had received the statement and were reviewing Sesame Street concerns.

The ad is a result of last week's debate when Mitt Romney said he would cut the federal subsidy to Sesame Street's network, PBS, to help reduce the country's deficit.
