How Is The Kevin Clash Scandal Effecting Times Square’s Elmos?

The first thing we thought of when we heard the allegations against Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash was, “What will that do business for the guys dressed up as Elmo in Times Square?!?”.

Apparently Mike Yerxa of 1 Girl, 5 Gays had the same thought, because he hit the Toys R Us in Times Square (a.k.a. the Center of the Elmo Universe) with a NewNowNext camera crew to find out.

Looking at these bedraggled red Muppets, though, they might be giving Elmo a worse name than Clash has.
