Top 10 Music Videos Starring Muppets
Have to love when the crowd erupts as the song kicks into overdrive.
You may have seen the LCD Soundsystem "Dance Yrself Clean" Muppets video floating around today (that's it above) and wondered, "Hmm, what other bands have had their songs Muppetized?" First, that's probably not a word. Second, we wondered the same thing and set out to find the best videos featuring Jim Henson's plushy puppets. Some of these are official videos, some are just fan-made tributes, but all them are excellent:
10. Radiohead's "Creep" as sung by Kermit the Frog
This acoustic rendition of Radiohead's first big hit is ALMOST more ridiculous than all the Thom Yorke dancing videos popping up right now. Hearing the voice of Kermit (or a very good imitator) sing, "You're so fucking special" is worth the price of admission.
9. Katy Perry's "Hot N Cold" featuring Elmo
Aside from all the "controversy" over her cleavage, this video shines because of Elmo's singing ability, which may just top Mrs. Brand's.
8. Weezer's "Keep Fishin'"
The best part of this video happens right at the start, when Gonzo says that Weezer is "an act people actually wanted to see." Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
7. Saves the Day's "Freakish"
While this video doesn't feature legitimate "Muppets," it makes the cut simply for the slow-motion dance scene at 2:02.
6. Peaches' "Fuck The Pain Away"
Animal on the cymbals. 'Nuff said. Also, it's fun to imagine Miss Piggy singing, "Sucking on my titties." I just ruined your childhood. You're welcome.
