Steven Tyler's 'Shocking' Hand Gesture Removed From Disney Hollywood Studio Attraction
Steven Tyler is known for a lot of things (scarves, those lips, that voice, saying incomprehensible catch phrases), but being subtle is not one of them. In fact, the Aerosmith singer has made it a point throughout his career to remove the whole "double" from double entendre and just go for the crude buzzer whenever possible.
Sometimes, though, he's been a bit more subtle, which might explain why it took the good folks at Disney nearly two decades to realize Tyler was pulling one over on them in the intro video to the Rock N' Roller Coaster at Florida's Disney Hollywood Studios. According to the Inside the Magic site, close observers of the 17-year-old video might have noticed that Tyler slyly threw up a gesture known as "the shocker" in the clip, but it now appears his three-finger salute has been digitally removed from the intro.

UPDATE: A few hours after this story posted, Tyler responded to the news in the the most Steven Tyler way possible... with a hand gesture, a four-letter word hat and a mocking facial expression.
