Rainbow-colored image of Sesame Street character Big Bird sitting next to a street pole and sign reading `Sesame Street'; when viewer stands to left of hologram, he is shown with his back to viewer, his head craned around looking at his back; when viewer moves to right, he turns around so that by the time viewer reaches the right side of hologram, he is shown in profile with his right side visible, while also waving his hand.
