Obama Big Bird ad is unbelievably real

We've tried to avoid discussing political ads on this site for the pure reason that most ads fail to break new ground. They're tired, rehashed ideas that are perfect to nap to. Such has been the case in the battle between Obama and Romney – until today. Fresh off Romney's comments that he would eliminate funding for PBS, killing off Big Bird, Obama's campaign struck in a comical way in an ad that looks like it's straight out of Saturday Night Live. 

UPDATE: Sesame Workshop has requested that the ad be removed, citing that they do not endorse candidates. 

Honestly, this might be the most enjoyable political ad I've ever sat through.
