Look. Approximately from when I was three until I was six, I was *obsessed* with the Muppets. (Ok, I still am.) So, man, has it made me joyful that the Muppets have made a comeback in a huge way on YouTube.
I’m sure you all know the absolutely phenomenal Bohemenian Rhapsody cover (or at least over 15 million people know it), but there have been some great other Muppet videos that they have put on YouTube.
And because you can never have enough Muppets, or enough YouTube, here are some other recommendations:
1) Stand By Me – The monster!? Or the bunny?
2) Beakers Ballad – Beaker sings a ballad. Too bad YouTube doesn’t let him finish.
3) Ode To Joy – Beaker’s version of Ode to Joy. Times six.
4) Pöpcørn – The Swedish Chef makes popcorn shrimp. Amazing.
Oh, and the world of Muppets gets better. Jason Segel is writing and starring in 2011’s Muppet movie: The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made. And the crew from this new Muppets film just went to Pixar to get feedback from the Pixar braintrust about their script.
Pixar + Muppets + Jason Segel = win.
In the meantime, I’m happy with YouTube.
