Was Sesame Street this current when we were growing up?

By Pete Cashmore

Along with the Mad Men spoof that’s being widely shared online, the children’s TV show released a clip this week in which Big Bird, Elmo and Snuffy celebrate the letter “D” with an iPod ad-inspired video. (Perhaps “current” is the wrong word, since these Apple ads are far from new.)

We’ll assume the idea was cleared by Apple’s eagle-eyed legal department, and can’t wait to see other Sesame Street Apple ad parodies: Snuffy playing a stoned Ellen Feiss, perhaps?

This fact only goes to show how technology and social media is penetrating  the  lives of the young so much sooner.
