President Barack Obama's re-election campaign informed that it has received a request from the Sesame Street organization to stop using Big Bird in its attacks on his Republican rival . "We have received that request. We're reviewing it," Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki told the reporters.
The Sesame Street organization, in a blog post, requested both Obama and Romney to discontinue any use of the beloved characters in their war for the White House.
In reply to the latest Big Bird ad, the Republican National Committee said: 'After failing to lay out a plan for his second term - let alone defend his first term - in last week's debate, all the President has been talking about recently to distract from his poor performance is Big Bird and Elmo.'
It remains undecided where and for how long the Democratic commercial will air, or whether the Democratic camp would pull the Big Bird ad off air.
