Sesame Street has decided not to air a clip of Katy Perry singing a reworked version of her hit "Hot N Cold" with the cute and awesome little red dude Elmo.
In the clip (which you can watch above), Perry and Elmo play a friendly game of tag as Elmo chases Katy, Katy chases Elmo, all while Perry sings a song about commitment phobia tweaked for preschoolers. It's all harmless fun.
But apparently some parents who saw the clip on YouTube had a problem with Perry's bouncing around — particularly her bouncing breasts.
Honestly, we don't see any problem here. Perry is surprisingly restrained in the clip, showing a little leg and keeping her boobs uncharacteristically tucked away. Maybe they had a problem with Elmo's little red boner? —Michael Gallucci
