The Muppets Ride the Tiger

Last week I saw a plug in Ashley’s Rolling Stone for a YouTube video featuring Kermit the Frog singing “Hurt.” It was as funny as it sounds. (Actually to some people it might not sound that funny, so let me be more direct: it was really very fucking funny.) Anyone who can see that shot of Kermit about to snort a huge pile of blow off a copy of The God Delusion and not laugh has officially sold their soul to Milhouse. In case you haven’t seen it, it’s embedded below. Watch it while you can — the humorless Jim Henson Co. has been having YouTube yank down copy after copy, lest some poor innocent fan of the Muppets watch it and take it for the genuine article. Nevermind that neither the company nor its Disney owners have produced anything with the characters in years, so there probably aren’t any Muppets fans left that are young and stupid enough to mistake this for a lost episode of The Muppet Show. Enjoy:

Update — 5/9/2007:  The "Hurt" video seems to have ceased to exist on YouTube, so here it is from DailyMotion.  We'll see how long this lasts:

 
Then over the weekend I found another one, this one a Muppet-ized version of Pulp Fiction. Even funnier, I think, than the “Hurt” video because whoever put this together just used actual video from a trailer for Pulp Fiction and digitally replaced all the heads with Muppets characters. The dialogue is still spoken by the real actors, so you get the treat of seeing Fozzie turn and say “Oh, I’m sorry, did I break your concentration?” Kermit is Vincent, another heroin addict. What is it about Kermit the Frog hopelessly addicted to a deadly opiate that’s so goddamn funny? I don’t know. But God bless a web geek with too much time on his hands:

Love the pulp fiction clip NW. In fact, I've forwarded the link on to a few people over here.

Gotta find that Kermit 'Hurt' clip though. Nice work.
