I am really feeling this new magazine cover for Hong Kong’s Ketchup January 2013 publication. First reason is obvious the Sesame Street/Elmo theme, poor Elmo got a lot of slack at the end of last year over Puppeteer Kevin Clash recent sticky-icky romance.
Second reason is the simple slogan at the bottom “Lets Keep Everything Neat and Simple” I am big advocate about doing just that. I think productivity and positivity flow with ease when things are tidy, clutter free and minimal.
If you are lucky you maybe able to find this in Asian boutiques around the US.
Check out the fill cover below.
From Sesame Workshop’s Regarding Kevin Clash:
Sesame Workshop’s mission is to harness the educational power of media to help all children the world over reach their highest potential.
Kevin Clash has helped us achieve that mission for 28 years, and none of us, especially Kevin, want anything to divert our attention from our focus on serving as a leading educational organization.
Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us wants, and he has concluded that he can no longer be effective in his job and has resigned from Sesame Street.
Wow this is pretty shocking, puppeteer Kevin Clash who performs as Elmo on “Sesame Street” is taking a leave of absence when allegations that he had a relationship with a 16-year-old boy have surfaced. Clash denies the charges, which were first made in June by the alleged partner, who by then was 23. Clash has been granted a leave of absence in order to “protect his reputation.” Read more of the comments below.
Great parody from the Sesame Street gang! Check out the guys in this creative Birdwalk Empire spoof. Based off the hit HBO drama series Boardwalk Empire. The skit features chickens and ducks facing off on the “birdwalk”. Don’t mess with Big Bird! Check out the video below.
PBS was not happy with the comments made by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney ruffled some feathers (again) in the first presidential debate Wednesday. Romney claimed “I like PBS. I love Big Bird,”“But I am not going to keep spending money on things [we have] to borrow money from China to pay for.” Sesame Workshop is a nonprofit that produces the show “Sesame Street,” which made $46.9 million in revenue from licensing Big Bird, Elmo, the Cookie Monster and other characters in 2011. This money pay’s the salaries of 1,320 employees. Sesame Workshop depends on the channel to distribute its programming for free to all families, including those who can’t afford cable or satellites. This guy is gathering up a substantial amount of enemies. I am HUGE fan of PBS from their documentaries to the idea channel to my childhood nostalgia shows, PBS gives back to the community in one day then a Presidential candidate could in 4 years. Read more comments below and watch the video. And be sure to retweet PBS status!
