OK Go poke fun of their previous viral videos in their new clip for “The Muppet Show Theme Song”, their contribution to The Green Album (out today!). The insanely creative band hops back on their treadmills and sets up another Rube Goldberg machine while the entire cast of The Muppets get into zany shenanigans. It’s got the spirit and the humor of The Muppet Show, and the group’s hypnotic cover is pretty great, too. Vid below!
OK Go feat. The Muppets – “The Muppet Show Theme Song”
The coolest – or is it creepiest? – part of the video is when the band goes in for an awesome guitar solo, and we pan down to reveal that they’re just puppets being controlled by The Muppets. This is like a nightmare I once had after too many viewings of Muppets From Space. Looks like both the band and the Jim Henson troupe feel the same way.
