VIDEO: Steven Tyler’s “Obscene Hand Gesture” Removed From Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Have you ever noticed that Steven Tyler’s hand in the Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster pre-show video kind of looks like something that could be considered an “obscene hand gesture”? For the sake of any younger members of our audience, I won’t write the name of it here, but you likely know what I am talking about if you have been on this attraction. Well, Disney has now digitally removed the gesture after 17 years…

Here is how it used to look:

It does seem kind of odd to remove it digitally 17 years later, but enough of the world has noticed it by now. From time to time I’ve ever heard guests yell out the name of the hand gesture, so I can somewhat understand Disney’s decision to keep the attraction family friendly.

What do you think? Is it ridiculous that Disney removed it? Or was it the right decision?
