Elmo

SINGS at Thanksgiving Parade

'Nothing's Gonna Bring Us Down'

11/22/2012 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Elmo
is alive and well on Thanksgiving -- singing his heart out during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade today in NYC ... and the song may or may not be a musical response to the child abuse scandal.

Elmo -- along with the rest of the "Sesame Street" cast -- sang "What I Am," a song with lyrics that take on new meaning in the wake of the scandal involving Kevin Clash, Elmo's former voice actor who's been accused of sexually abusing 2 underage boys.

Among the lyrics -- "I'm gonna keep my head up high / keep on reaching high / Never gonna quit / Just keep getting stronger."

And if that weren't appropriate enough, Elmo chimes in with his solo -- "Nothing's gonna bring us down."

Check out the clip.

Everytime TMZ writes a story about this guy they show him with a picture of ELMO.

I think it is in poor taste to do so. It is making people think that ELMO is a podo.

I HOPE that Sesame Street Sues the Hell out of TMZ and any one else that uses

ELMO (TM) along with this story because I know
that they will lose money and kids will be be confused.
