Making and distributing child pornography is a crime. So is exploiting a minor. Using a minor without their parents permission to make a video counts even if the video had content that was acceptable to Mr. Rogers.

Making and distributing child pronography is indeed a crime, but I'm struggling to understand how the video edit would even begin to touch the very widest definitions of child pornography. I don't think anyone has actually seen the video but there would be a world of difference between child pornography and editing a sexually explicit song with images of children watching the performer do a completely ordinary song, for a (albeit in bad taste) humourous video. Speaking only from a UK perspective, the definition of pronography is very clear - it is something created "solely and princaplly for the purpose of sexual arousal".
