OK Go Rock The Muppets

OK Go join forces with The Muppets. Hilarity ensues.

OK Go join forces with The Muppets. Hilarity ensues.

The band have created a version of the original theme for The Muppet Show for The Green Album, a collection of covers of Muppet songs by a variety of musicians. As is often the way with OK Go though, it’s the music video that is the star. For this one, the band present a medley of scenes from their previous promos, but with a little intervention from those cheeky Muppets.

All your favourite Muppet stars make an appearance in the promo – look out particularly for Statler and Waldorf, who, unsurprisingly, give the brand the brush off in favour of looking up cat videos on the internet.
