Porn on Sesame street

Yeah, real classy guys.

Way to win public support for whatever the f* you're pushing/selling/claiming.

Now f* off.

Awesome. Nothing screams hardcore 1337 h4x0r than the ability to shown pre-school kids pr0n.

Not one of the "won't someone think of the children" crowd. But if I was I would welcome this sort of activity with open arms.

The filthy flicks were only available for about 20 minutes before YouTube realised the error – that Kermit and Miss Piggy had not finally taken their relationship to its logical conclusion

Miss Piggy isn't a sesame muppet and Kermit hasn't been on the sesame playlist for some time.

Might have been a good hacker but it seems English isn't his first language...

"Some people really are just fucking arseholes."

Plenty of those sort of videos around...

Incidentally, when I heard Sesame Stree porn, I couldn't help thinking "Meet the Feebles". If you haven't seen it, you should - it's hilarious.

Meet The Feebles? That means at least two of us had the same thought. I wonder if the Sesame Street porn featured nasal sex and Daisy the cow.

Oh dear

Confusing Dr Seuss with Sesame Street.

Shame on you.

Somehow the evil hackers seem a little less evil.

So...

doesn't this just reinforce the idea that you should make sure you know what the hell your kid is doing online? Considering just how many times this has happened in the past, I wouldn't watch a YouTube video with my toddler without scanning through it first.

Nothing new

Looks like a classic Joe job. Who has Mredxwx annoyed recently? Someone petty and stupid enough to try getting him done for kiddy porn.

Hang on, who said kiddy porn. This is porn being displayed to kids, not porn featuring kids.

A great quote on the BBC site...

"Security blogger Graham Cluley grabbed several screenshots of the offending content before it was removed."

Mr Cluley can't be that good if he doesn't know where to get some pr0n on the internet!

Yup...said this many times in the past...stop passing off parental responsibility to ISP's/website owners/government agencies etc and take responsibility.

Don't understand tech? Put the damn computer in a room where you can look up and see what your kids are doing.

And like has already been said - pre-screen it. It's happened before and will happen again.

But I guess that means spending time with, and interacting with, your sprogs rather than letting someone/something else do it for you.

As for the perpetrators...why aim your smut at pre-school kids you sick whack jobs? Let's hand the "The internets are dark and evil and must be censored" brigade a huge stick to beat the ISP's & governments with.

Hmm...

I wondered how long it would be until the first "you are responsible for your kids" type of comment.

It's the Sesame St channel on YouTube, they've probably seen each part of it ten times already and therefore have good reason to presume that they know what their kids are doing. What is wrong with you kids watching Sesame St on the telly/a laptop while you got to the loo, or prepare a meal for them?

It is impossible to check everything a child does or sees, the real problem here is that youtube have a "zero tolerance" policy to nudity (yet they still host lots of graphic violence, go figure) but they are happy to have anything uploaded and do nothing until someone actually complains about it.

So some idiot guessed a password and thought this was funny?

If you're going to troll a site like this then at least do it properly.

"A is for Absorbefacient...

What else starts with the letter A?

Arachibutyrophobia also starts with an A."

Mum? What does Arachibutyrophobia mean?

Screw with the parents fine, but leave the kids out of it, they've got a whole lifetime of this crap ahead of them as it is.

re: Arachibutyrophobia

Don't you think that would terrify kids more than watching two naked old people, which they would probably think is funny. Or they'd think 'my parents ignore me when they're doing that'.

That reminds me...

Of a couple of things. First off, there is a great little show called "Avenue Q" that is a parody of Seseme Street, but with a more "Adult" attitude. One of the amusing songs in the play puts forth the theory that the main use of the Internet is "Porn...."

I also agree that the folks that did this are slightly lower than a snake's belly. I suspect that they are probably a couple of giggling, 14 year old boys, who are either trying to build some street cred with this, or, are trying to prove that they are not a total waste of skin.

Avenue Q

In fact, if I were to hack the Sesame St channel I would prolly put that particular song with the Sesame St crew performing. No lewd images and probably more lulz-worthy to have kids asking "mommy wotz porn?"
