The Muppets Make A Better “Monster” Video Than Kanye West

Okay, so the completed video has yet to arrive. But it’s going to be incredibly hard to top this video of Kanye West’s “Monster”, as performed by The Muppets (and as edited together by someone both brilliant and with a lot of old tapes of Sesame Street and The Muppet Show lying around). And hey, Kanye already approves. Jump below to watch Cookie Monster, Kermit and Miss Piggy (wearing S&M gear, for some childhood-destroying reason) lipdub Yeezy’s all-star single.

So it may not be the most original idea out there, as a shorter, also hilarious, Muppets-featuring “Monster” remix video hit the web earlier this week. Still, neither version has dead models stuffed underneath cushions or hanging by their necks for shock value. That definitely wouldn’t fly on Sesame Street, particularly if a little bit of cleavage is frowned upon.
