    You know, I recently was wondering what would happen if SST's YT channel (of all channels) ended up getting hacked, what with YT ALWAYS drawing in hacking activities, and it looks like it's finally happened, as someone's posting some pretty raunchy videos on SST's channel, claiming it's brand new content for children's education, when it's clearly not...

    My friends are saying "Haha so funny xD!" and "It's just a prank, calm down." Ugh. I really need new friends e.e

    I do hope the jerk set the videos to private instead of just removing them...

    well at this moment i have to agree with your friends...no need to get all up in arms about it its just some guy who thinks he is being funny...he even tagged his name on the videos...the videos will be taken down and the channel will be given a new password and better security...and this will all be forgotten

    the worse thing we as fans could do is blow up and make a big deal about it because then the guy knows he got to us....im not saying its ok but lets not give whoever it was the satisfaction of knowing he made us extreme upset

    I do hope you're refering to the actual SST videos, and not his little stag vids.

    i think the guy that hacked it removed all of the sesame street vids before the channel was taken down which did make me sad

    If you can believe it, some people out there actually get PAID to do this... cyber career criminals.

    Most dont care if they are funny or not they do it to get a rise out of people, they never no back and check the outcome...if this makes world wide news and people start freaking out about then they will know what the did worked and call us all dumb
    this too sometimes a higher power who hates that target pays a hacker to do it wipe them off the internet

    I found out about this as well.

    It's very upsetting indeed. A depressing day for the longest street in the world. :(

    How dare those hackers try to make poor, innocent Sesame Street look bad! :grouchy:

    If they make a new account, it's gonna really be hard to replicate what they lost. A lot of their vids from recent years won't get as much views due to publicity.

    ok well im taking my leave of this thread...and while i cant make anyone do anything i suggest we all just drop this and it will disappear into obscurity and into the depths of this forum maybe even be locked, what happened happened we cant change it we can just forget about it...if we keep talking about it it wont go away and the hacker won by letting it get to us

    Well, the videos are back, you can't access the actual channel page though. However, the same thing happened when they first started the channel, so it may come back soon.

    Seriously? What kind of loser has so much free time on their hands that they have to do a "everything from teh childhood is GAAAYYY" immature stunt like that?

    I hope that stuff gets them listed as sex offenders. It's the only way hackturds ever learn.
  19. Oh that really makes mad. And I thought it was Lionsgate that just got the official Sesame Street Youtube channel suspended.:mad::eek::boo:

    Hopefully Sesame Workshop will start a new YouTube channel. There have been many YouTubers whose accounts were suspended but were apparently able to start new channels regardless (and even if a person couldn't start another channel after getting suspended, I'm sure they could just get another Sesame Workshop employee to start the channel). There were a number of clips on the Sesame Street YouTube account that aren't on sesamestreet.org (yet), like the one where David tried to make Gordon a milkshake the way Mr. Hooper did, and Cookie Monster's SNL audition tape (if Sesame Workshop puts out another volume of Sesame Street Spoofs I hope this gets included as a bonus feature).
