Vids for the Masses

Wow, it really looks like this YouTube thing is taking off! People really seem to like watching things move on their computer screens. And who can blame them? I’ve been watching things move in real life for years now.

The Muppets have been tossing videos online a lot recently, and we don’t want any of you folks to miss out on the good ones. Which is all of them. So get your popping corn ready, because it’s Movie Sign!

First up is an official (read: not fan-made) music video to promote Letters to Santa, featuring clips and outtakes from the movie. Be cautious, as spoilers abound.

Next is the furry, the funny, the fabulous Fozzie Bear, along with Bobby Flay, demonstrating how one might go about building their own Whatnot. After the show, Bobby Flay served his Whatnot with a light raspberry creme sauce and braised asparagus on the side.

Live from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, here’s Kermit singing the brand new song, “I Believe“. This is not to be confused with the opening lyrics of Whitney Houston’s “Greatest Love of All”.

Here’s a backstage view of the brand spankin’ new Emmet Otter musical. Click here and scroll down a tad for the vid. It’s times like these when I wish I knew anything about embedding videos in HTML. Sorry folks.

Kermit and Piggy made it to the lighting of the giant mutant tree at Rockefeller Center. Here they are introducing the very talented, and very off-screen, Harry Connick Jr.

Lastly, here’s four teaser videos from NBC.com for Letters to Santa. Put your spoiler goggles on, as we’ve entered the SPOILER ZONE! Someone wake Kenny Loggins up.





We now return you to your regularly scheduled ToughPigs blog, now more motionless and static than ever before!
