Unsexy-Sexy Halloween Costumes, Bad Lipreading the Presidential Debate. and Big Bird's To Do List
10/11/2012 3:00:00 PM
My computer still has that nasty Stacey Dash virus, but somehow I still managed to put together a blog post today. Have you seen the Big Bird Obama for America TV ad? I can’t believe this thing is real.
When MITT ROMNEY name-checked BIG BIRD at the presidential debate last week, he not only changed the talking points of the Obama campaign, he inadvertently CHANGED HALLOWEEN.
According to the website CostumeCraze.com, IMMEDIATELY after the debate, there was a MASSIVE sales spike in their "Sexy Big Bird" (???) costume. And sales are up 500% ever since.
The Sexy Big Bird costume features a yellow, feathered tank top, a short skirt, orange-and-purple thigh-high socks, and a little hat that looks like the top of Big Bird's head, including his eyes. It costs $48.50.
CostumeCraze says it's not a coincidence, because other sexy Sesame Street costumes like Cookie Monster and Elmo haven't seen any increase. Sesame Street isn't hot right now . . . only Big Bird is.
I DO NOT UNDERSTAND these ‘sexy’ versions of pop culture characters that are not sexy. I mean, look at the pics on today’s blog – who wants to see SEXY ELMO or SEXY ERNIE? How do YOU feel about this trend? Comment below.
Now that Big Bird and his Sesame Street crew have been dragged into the middle of the presidential campaign, see how he's dealing with the extra attention with the Celebrity To Do List of Big Bird.
8:30 A.M.: Breakfast: eggs. Hey, they probably would've grown up to be bad kids anyhow.
9:30 A.M.: Express sadness for the state of our nation that an off-handed comment about a children's show may actually help decide who gets to run the free world.
10:00 A.M.: Improve someone's day by plucking feathers, making a boa, and then sending it to Hulk Hogan.
11:00 A.M.: Use massive, pear-shaped body to blend in with everyone else in America.
12:15 P.M.: Hoarding intervention for Oscar the Grouch.
1:30 P.M.: Hit head on ceiling while shopping at Mr. Hooper's. Dammit! Will I ever learn?!?
2:00 P.M.: Protest the marriage of Bert and Ernie.
3:30 P.M.: Get tired of kids asking me how to get to Sesame Street. Tell them to use a damn GPS, like everyone else.
4:30 P.M.: Attend "Coping with Tiny Arms" support group with Cee-Lo Green.
6:00 P.M.: See some recent photos of Christina Aguilera. Have Cookie Monster talk to her about the importance of portion control.
8:00 P.M.: After a few beers, ask Snuffleupagus point blank what the hell kind of animal he really is.
Another Bad Lip-Reading video is on YouTube. These are the ones where they take video clips and dub in ridiculous things the people LOOK like they're saying.
This time, they used footage of PRESIDENT OBAMA and MITT ROMNEY from the first debate, and a bunch of clips of the moderator, JIM LEHRER . . . who pretty much seems DEMENTED in it.
Don't miss Obama sleeping at 3:09.
You can hear our coverage of the VEEP debate tonight starting at 7:30pm.
