Despite Kermit’s insistence on never giving into Doc Hopper, The Muppets are highly exploitable. They’re instantly recognizable and beloved, but with non-specific mouth movements that can be made to say almost anything. That means YouTube masher-uppers have had a blast dubbing song after song into the mouths of our feltish friends. Here are 5 examples:
Cookie Monster Sings Tom Waits – “God’s Away On Business”
Cookie starts with the letter “C.” So does “Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis.”
Beaker Sings Rick Astley – “Never Gonna Give You Up”
You, sir, have been meaproll’d.
Bert and Ernie Perform M.O.P. – “Ante Up”
Why do they take baths together? Cause they’re hardcore gangstas, bitch.
Rowlf The Dog Sings Tay Dizm (f/ Akon) – “Dreamgirl”
Is Miss Piggy your dream girl? I assume the answer is “hells yeah.”
Kermit Sings Nine Inch Nails – “Hurt”
Because it’s good to end on a lighter note.
