    I see these people all the time in the city and it always bothers me. These are just random people dressed up as characters and naive tourists just assume they're "legit" and let their kids hug them. New York City is not Disney World, people, it's a real living, breathing city. And you have to be on your guard.

    There is no one to fire him. That's the point; he doesn't work for anyone, people just assume he must be an employee.

    You see... this is what happens when internet trolldum gets into the rest of society. He did this for attention, he got attention, mission accomplished.

    Sounds like this guy wanted more than attention...

    Again, I see foolish parents taking their kids up to these jerks all the time because anyone dressed up as Elmo or Mickey can't possibly be bad. Good job, parents...

    I don't see this as any different than the dorks who hacked into Sesame Street's Youtube page and posted porn. I can't even dignify that as sick behavior (sick behavior always goes further), so much as idiotic and immature. The "cleverness" is to juxtapose kiddy friendly stuff with perverted stuff.

    This was ONLY to post a Yotube video... the guy's either an internet troll or a failed comedian that can't be funny on his own.

    If he had another motive, he would have done something more than act like a grade A moron.

    Funny thing is, the Smurfs movie pretty much predicted something like this. They called an unlicensed Elmo costume a "Red Troll." :electric:

    You can't blame tourists. This really hasn't come to light until a 30 Rock. It's a New York and California thing, we haven't had that problem around here in Boston, thankfully. Just fully licensed Ben Franklins. If they're not in the know (and they SHOULD be warned about it), they can't help it.

    Meanwhile, I have a whole new respect for Archie comics. They have a Batcrackers insane hold on the wholesomeness of the comic book characters that they've sued rock bands that used character names and will seek legal action against fan fics (I'm terrified of drawing Jughead on DA). They're extremely litigious about their property. And if Sesame Workshop can go to those extents on those knockoff walk-a-bouts, they could just put a stop to this. I'm shocked Disney didn't seek legal action. They sued a Daycare center for crying out loud.

    I think this guy having sex with 10 year old girls goes far beyond idiotic and immature. More like dangerous and perverted.

    Yes I can. I have suspected these people for years, long before 30 Rock. If they worked for a company, they'd be handing out brochures or something similar. They're clearly freelancers and you have no idea who they are. It's common sense. If you visit any city you have to be aware that there are dangers.

    I'm surprised that Sesame Workshop hasn't done anything. And Disney has been known to go crazy if someone walks into their park dressed as characters.

    The costume doesn't even look like Elmo!
