Einmal bitte die Muppets ordentlich durch den Electro-Indie-Rock Fleischwolf drehen… Dankeschön! Einmal ein Video-Mashup zwischen klassischem Indie-Clip und Puppenwahnsinn… ja, ein bisschen mehr Puppenwahnsinn noch. So ist gut. Achja und am Schluss bitte komplett durchdrehen… Vielen Dank. Perfekt! Gekauft!
It’s time to raise the curtain on the most sensational video collaboration! From the musical tribute, Muppets: The Green Album, OK Go and The Muppets team up for a music video for the “Muppet Show Theme Song.”
The song, written by Jim Henson and Sam Pottle, opened and closed “The Muppet Show” for five seasons in the UK and US, from 1976-1981. The new track was produced by OK Go and mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT). Says singer Damian Kulash, “I’m so excited about working with the Muppets that I can hardly sleep. Collaborating with your idols is a huge thrill no matter what, but when your idols are fictional characters it seems downright impossible. The 10-year-old me was pretty good at imagining outrageous futures, but this surpasses even his capacities.”
Kermit the Frog adds, “The Muppets have performed this song lots of times, but not like this. OK Go never does anything the way you’d expect it. Damian, Tim, Dan and Andy like to mix things up and get a little loopy. I think they were Muppets in a previous lifetime.”
Disney’s “The Muppets” hits the big screen in the UK on 17 February.
