[Video Link] Chris Hardwick's NERDIST YouTube channel is full of awesome, but few things as awesome as this.
The Official Music Video for "Do It Anyway," the first track from Ben Folds Five's much anticipated album THE SOUND OF THE LIFE OF THE MIND...featuring the Fraggles from Jim Henson's "Fraggle Rock"! Also starring Rob Corddry, Anna Kendrick & Chris Hardwick.
Dear readers, do not mistake this story for official facts just yet, because it looks like all we're getting from CW president Mark Pedowitz is a fleeting promise for some sort of Muppets holiday special on his television channel. He didn't use the word "new," what he said was this: “I can promise another Muppets special this holiday season.”
Whoa there, Mark Pedowitz. While many of us would be unbelievably excited to see a brand new Muppets special this holiday season, are you really "promising" this kind of thing? I mean, is this thing in super secret development or something? Because it's August, and the holiday season is a mere three or so months away. Unless you're referring to what I call "Commercial Christmas," which starts in one month. That's even less time to spring a surprise Muppet holiday special upon the world! I feel like if such a special was happening, we would have heard about it earlier than this.
Then again, the Muppets are magic, and I believe in their ability to throw such a show together at the very last second, when all hope has been lost.
There's something inevitable about Tautr's "Occupy Sesame Street" set, but that doesn't mean I don't like it. After all, most of us learned how to think about concepts like "fairness" from these characters.
